What is a myth?

According to Joseph Campbell a myth has four functions:

  • to inspire a sense of awe
  • to explain the origin and nature of the cosmos
  • to support the social order
  • to awaken individuals to their own potential, especially in the spiritual domain

A myth is a window. A story told anew through the ages, but how you hear it, the way it hits you or fills you with wonder and inspiration, that is the power of myth. It's potency lies in the moment you are struck , and the moments that follow where you re-organize because some principle, some value shown through in such a way that you understand something you couldn't quite put your finger on before. Myths illustrate meaning, and Indian mythology is a veritable sea of anthropomorphised archetypes of our own psyche. We are each of us the hero, the villain, the dutiful friend, and the beggar. Like a soap opera of Marvel superheroes from a land that once was but never has been, Sacred Soaps will take you on a bendy story-telling hayride through ancient India.

Allison Dennis holds a BFA in Musical Theatre with a Minor in Music from ECU where she studied Sanford Meisner's acting technique. She sang in jazz, funk, and folk bands, recorded and performed as a singer-songwriter, and performed supporting and leading roles in a variety of plays and musicals. 

In NYC at the turn of the millenium, she acted and sang in Off Broadway shows, and ultimately flew in the wildly popular Argentine circus De La Guarda. A back injury during a show brought her to yoga in 2001. 

A herniated disc with nerve impingement made movement quite painful for the first three years of the injury, so her entry point to yoga was the philosophy of India, not the poses. She concentrated on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras for a decade while becoming a yoga asana teacher as therapy for her own physical pain. Once mobility returned, Allison was finally permitted by her physical therapist to take on an asana practice. Within months she had signed up for her first Yoga Teacher Training in 2005.

From 2010-2018 Allison owned and operated Heart of Yoga School out of Carrboro, NC where she designed and taught three distinct yoga teacher trainings, culminating in a full 800 hour YTT program. She led nineteen long-term trainings while managing the School, guiding curious seekers to become teachers and home practitioners. 

She also spends 2-3 months a year in India, deepening her understanding of the culture and wisdom systems.
