Unstrung Letter J – Radical Mythology: Story and Subversion

Unstrung Letter J – Radical Mythology: Story and Subversion

By Griffin Payne
Groups define themselves by creating stories for themselves – a mythology. It is this mythology that gives them a shared identity that transforms them from a group to a tribe. When mythologies reject totally the standards of a society or a community, they become radical. Radical mythologies are behind radical change. For it is only tribes that are effective harbingers of change and activity. Members of a group lack the necessary shared conviction. Please join us to hear Griffin discussion his experiences as a queer shaman and how radical mythologies have shaped his life.
