Grace Episcopal Hosts Chattanooga Roundtable

Friday, November 15, 2013

The Joseph Campbell Mythological Roundtable of Chattanooga will meet this Monday at Grace Episcopal Church, 20 Belvoir Ave. The program will be Psychological Archetypes of Carolyn Myss, presented by Janet Watts.  

Janet Watts has studied with Carolyn Myss for 13 years and has traveled to Spain, Peru, India and Canada to attend her lectures and see the countryside through the eyes of this incredible medical intuitive steeped in knowledge of the mystics, mysticism, jungian archetypes and the universal laws of nature.  Janet's formal education is in Zoology, Chemistry, and Business Administration. She has lived in Chattanooga, working at TVA for 20 years and her pastimes in addition to being a student of Myss involve therapeutic yoga, scuba diving, hiking and travel. 
The Roundtable meets at Grace Episcopal at 7 p.m. on the third floor, the Merritt Room.  This room is most easily accessed from the parking lot off of Sunbeam.  Come up the sidewalk toward the church nave and turn right at the breezeway.  Turn left inside the building, and the meeting room is mid-hallway on the right.  

Roundtable meetings are open to the public.  Visitors and guests are welcome.  There is no charge to attend, though a small donation to support the Roundtable program and our host Grace church is appreciated. For more information, please contact Diana Peterson at LEP82@juno.com
