The Gilgamesh Epic: How an Ancient Myth Reflects Splits in our Culture


SKU: SG-Gilgamesh Categories: ,


Presented by Steven Galipeau, M.A., M.Div. on June 6, 2020

The Gilgamesh Epic is the oldest story in the world but for over two thousand years all traces of it were lost.  As various fragments have been uncovered since 1850, scholars and poets have been drawn to understand and elucidate this tale. Using some more recent translations we will study this tale in light of our current cultural splits (profoundly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic), especially our disassociation from nature, to reflect on the archetypal underpinnings of our time and where they may be leading us.

Steven Galipeau, M.A., M.Div., is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Woodland Hills, and President and Executive Director of Coldwater Counseling Center in Studio City, a Jungian oriented sliding scale nonprofit. Steve is the author of Transforming Body and Soul: Therapeutic Wisdom in the Gospel Healing Stories and The Journey of Luke Skywalker: An Analysis of Modern Myth and Symbol as well as articles and reviews on a variety of topics related to analytical psychology. He is a frequent lecturer for Public Programs.
