The work of Joseph Campbell
Joseph Campbell was a professor of mythology. He saw that myths all over the world were universal and contained the timeless wisdom of the cosmos and the collective unconscious of humanity. In a very simple and easy to understand form called the Hero’s Journey, the knowledge of the myth will explain itself to us and give us guidance, instructions and insights into life in general and into our personal lives.
The Hero’s Journey
The Hero’s Journey is a philosophical and psychological quest into ourselves, finding ways of living in this world, discovering our destiny and purpose or receiving answers to many personal questions that we have in life.
Many people ask themselves how to live in this world and how to find fulfillment. The way of myth and living according to your own mythological story, will bring you closer to these answers. Let us go into that adventure together, where our own life-story becomes our personal myth and our dreams become reality. Anyone is welcome on this course.
