RJeneration partners with the Jewish Art Salon to invite you to “Finding Home: “Parallels in mythology from around the world”. An event for you as the writer and teller of your own life story.
This lecture and workshop will bridge world mythologies to individual stories. Presenter: Siona Benjamin, a painter from Bombay, living in the US connects mythology to personal stories in a sensitive and though provoking way. Her work reflects her background of being brought up Jewish in a predominantly Hindu and Muslim India.
Siona will compare mythological stories like the Indian Matsya , Jonah and the fish ,Noah’s Ark , Aleksandr Pushkin’s “The tale of the fisherman” , Gilgamesh , a Babylonian myth from 2000 BC. We will discuss the science/geology of the “flood” or massive change. Participants will bring ideas and objects from home that speak of their family, culture, religion, identity, transformations. In a facilitated journey, participants will connect the parallels in mythologies of the world with their own personal stories.
