Presented by Steven Galipeau, M.A., M.Div. Herman Melville’s Moby Dick is a uniquely American description of the encounter with our unconscious depths. In this seminar, we will examine some of the ways in which this extraordinary product of the American imagination speaks to our modern circumstances with striking relevance.
