Our Friends and Fellow Conspirators
The Imaginal Institute has some great buddies doing cool stuff. Here are some links to their online worlds:
Spring Journal and Books
Spring: A Journal of Archetype and Culture is the oldest Jungian psychology journal in the world. Published twice a year, each Spring Journal is organized around a theme and offers articles and book reviews in the areas of archetypal psychology, mythology, and Jungian psychology. Spring Journal also publishes books about archetypal psychology, mythology, and Jungian psychology under the imprint of Spring Journal Books.
Joseph Campbell Foundation
Supporting and disseminating the work of the big man, the Joseph Campbell Foundation plays an exceedingly important role in continuing to keep myth and imagination relevant in our lives. A great associate program, and support for regional "mythic round tables" are among their offerings.
The Mythic Imagination Institute
Based in Atlanta, the Mythic Imagination institute creates experiences that expore -- through art, hands-on acivity, and interdisciplinary conversation -- the mystery and metaphor inherent in myth and story. Check out their website for information on upcoming Mythic Journeys conferences. Wonderful stuff!
Imaginal Institute Founding Fellow Kathy Davison brilliantly guides organizations as they re-imagine the interplay between people, relationships, meaning, and money.

A great blog site with insightful musing on mythology in pop culture and current events from playwright and mythologist Laura Shamas, Ph.D.
Mythic Eye Press
Mythic poetry and art from Dave Alber. His work is evocative, rich, and, in the words of one major reviewer, "courageous." We couldn't agree more.
Another fabulous blog site -- this one poetry and art from Ric Williams. Poetry that will knock your socks off and some of the best badly drawn birds we've seen.
Foundation for Mythological Studies
The growing professional organization for scholars of myth. As they put it, " By providing a sense of place for mythologists and depth psychologists, we hope to build community that utilizes the revolving abundance of talent and knowledge to further our studies and expand our ideas about mythology and archetypal psychology."
