CHRIS VOGLER is the world’s leading voice at the intersection of myth, film and the narrative industries. His book, The Writers’ Journey, has become an anchor for storytellers of all kinds — from Hollywood filmmakers to journalists, tour-guides and chefs. This evening is about reflecting on that legacy and recognizing his contributions while celebrating the stories he’s touched.
Darren Aronofsky – Panelist – Director of mythic films like Pi, Black Swan, The Fountain, Noah and Mother as well as series like One Strange Rock for National Geographic and Limitless with Chris Hemsworth; Darren is one of the most compelling filmmakers in the world–especially for mythologists.
It all starts with this book. — Darren Aronofsky
Jeffrey Kripal, PhD – Panelist – Board Chair of Esalen Institute & founder of the Gnosticism, Esotericism and Mysticism program at Rice University; Dr. Kripal is a world-renown leader in the space of mythology and religious philosophy–especially the esoteric.

The Writer’s Journey is a fixture among canonical masterworks on the duet between myth and story. A must read for storytellers and scholars of all kinds, Vogler’s work is like a Trojan Horse of industry-leading lessons that unlocks a door to myth– if not meaning. — Will Linn, Ph.D.
