This important new work explores the urgent contemporary relevance of the ancient myth of the Mother Goddess Demeter and her daughter Persephone. When Persephone is abducted and taken to the Underworld by Hades, Demeter withdraws her life giving power, threatening life on earth. The Mysteries reveals how this myth predicted both the environmental cataclysm into which the world has fallen and how the story might be rewritten if we hope to survive.
Running Time: Approx. 2 hours
