Sydney | Kristina Dryza | The Transformative Power of Myth and How it Shapes our Lives

  • Golden Age Cinema 80 Commonwealth Street Surry Hills, NSW, 2010 Australia (map)

How do we view the world mythically, not just logically?

Why are myths the most fundamental patterns of society?

How do we think mythically and sense archetypally?

Why does the collective psyche respond to the images in myths?

How do myths move us from the conceptual to the experiential?

And just what is the transformative power of myth?

Join Kristina Dryza as she explores the myths influencing the technology, business and culture Zeitgeist and how our lives are on the back of a bigger story when the personal meets the mythical.

About Rising Minds:

Rising Minds explores the intersection of technology, business and culture through a free monthly speaker series hosted at intimate venues in Sydney, London and New York.

But more than that, Rising Minds is about true connection - and connecting in a time when this seems more important and more challenging than ever.

For 60 minutes of unplugged sharing, we invite you to expand your thinking - in the company of curious minds and fuelled by great coffee. Rising Minds is a space where speakers share a little more of themselves, where guests ask exciting and vulnerable questions where connections are made beyond the room — but there too.

Whether you’re a regular or a newbie, extroverted or introverted, a CEO or a student - We invite you to pop in, enjoy a great coffee and connect with other curious thinkers. We're excited to rise with you.

Welcome to Rising Minds.
