One Greek myth will be explored over each of the ten weeks. These myths contain symbols and metaphors that are universally recognised. Over this course, Valentina will use these stories to draw parallels in our modern world and how these myths have lessons for us all to take into our day to day lives to help us understand how and why we operate in the way that we do.
