Description

Joseph Campbell transformed the way we view mythology, weaving traditional wisdom together with the modern struggle for identity and spiritual depth. This program brings new life to his brilliant poetic vision.

The Adventure of the Hero describes the universal image of the hero and shows that folklore and myth can serve as potent spiritual and psychological metaphors for modern man. This part of the program follows the mythological path from maturity to freedom, the heroic inner struggle that leads from birth to spiritual rebirth, to help us understand ourselves and the essence of what it means to be a human being.

The Cosmogonic Cycle explores the global legends of the origins and creation of the universe and studies the hero in his various guises, including those of warrior, lover, world redeemer and saint. The saga leads us to the culmination of the cycle, the dissolution of the universe and the passing of the hero to other realms, a metaphor for the dissolution and resurrection of ourselves and the hero that lives within us all.
