Dr. Jonathan Young

Dr. Jonathan Young

Jonathan Young,  is a psychologist and storyteller who assisted mythologist Joseph Campbell for several years at seminars. He was the Founding Curator of the Joseph Campbell Archives and Library. As a professor, Dr. Young created and chaired the Mythological Studies Department at the Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara. His most recent book is SAGA - Best New Writings on Mythology.

Dr. Young developed his deep love of stories through extensive initial exposure to folklore. He was one of six children in a much-travelled family. His parents read and discussed the lore of each place they visited, so he learned about the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen, the Pied Piper in Hamlin, the Arabian Nights in Baghdad, the Buddha in India and Japan, and so forth.

Dr. Young was also archivist for James Hillman, author of The Soul's Code and Marija Gimbutas, the leading scholar on the Goddess traditions of old Europe.

When not traveling to give seminars on the symbolism of mythic stories, Jonathan lives with his cat in an old 

house in Santa Barbara, California.    source  http://www.folkstory.com

DR Young I wanted to thank you for your story telling on Ancient Aliens. You are one of the mains reason why I watch the show. The way you tell mythology really makes me feel like you are taking me back in time to be a part of the story. Thank you so much for you influence on the show it wouldn't be the same without you.

Hello,
I would love to attend one of your lectures on classic mythology. However, in checking your lecture series, you seem to be gearing your talks toward the medical field. Do you still give lectures on mythology or will I have to refer to archives and private collections?
Thanks,
Pat
