The Hero’s Journey in Under 5 Minutes

Jaime Mintun Myth & Magic 0 Comments

The Hero’s Journey is a convenient map outlined by Joseph Campbell to illustrate the narrative structure of every myth, creation story, novel, movie and story ~ widely found regardless of geographical location, culture, or belief system.

Add to this the fact that the brain is found to be literally wired for story, and the Hero’s Journey becomes an equally convenient narrative map for each of us to better understand our own story, and how we can better live it on our own terms, and author it for our own purposes.

As I will reference the Hero’s Journey often in articles and in courses and other offerings here, I wanted to provide a quick and entertaining explanation of the overall concept. And although the stages I tend to work with are named slightly differently in this video, the essence of those stages is roughly the same.

Enjoy!
