A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. - Joseph Campbell What Cindy Currier teaches us is that everyone has the potential to be a hero. Despite years spent struggling with her troubled past, Cindy finally found the strength to let go of her trauma and move forward into a life of happiness and peace. Though this kind of healing can require a monumental amount of strength and temerity, Forgiveness: A Hero's Journey shows that any feat can be accomplished through determination and faith in God's love. Once lost in the woods of despair and hatred, Cindy faced down witches, ogres and all manner of beasts before emerging once more into the sunlight. Now, in simple sections and with heartfelt words, she explores the nature of Anger, Fear, Shame, Guilt, and ultimately Forgiveness and how it can be achieved. The journey to forgiveness is cyclical: It begins with a call to adventure (dissatisfaction with life as it is), and is followed closely by chaos (a life event that calls into question old beliefs and thought patterns), battling enemies (marshaling new coping skills and strategies), spiritual awakening (development of new insights, new self-awareness), and carrying the message home (sharing new insights with others). Following these steps will enable anyone to overcome the monsters of anger and shame and emerge from the forest into forgiveness and love, and to share that love with the world.

'Monomyth' is the term coined by James Joyce and popularized by Joseph Campbell in his seminal work, The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Its structure is delineated by Campbell, and it follows that of the traditional heroic myths that permeate human culture and history. Margaret Atwood's two companion novels, Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood, incorporate Campbell's monomyth and transplant it into the realm of postmodern dystopia. In this way, Atwood offers an escape from the existential dilemmas that face the postmodern subjectivity through the self-perpetuated, neoshamanic journey toward the recognition of immanence. The monomyth bridges this immanence with the separateness of the physical world, embodied by the individual hero, and thus the monomyth functions as a tool for understanding human existence.--P. iv.

The Hero s Journey in Contemporary Post apocalyptic Fiction for Young Adults

In The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), comparative mythologist Joseph Campbell writes that myths "carry the keys that open the whole realm of the desired and feared adventure of the discovery of the self (8). Campbell distils mythology into common archetypes, which he calls the monomyth, also known as the Hero's Journey. Campbell's monomyth provides keys to unlocking meaning regarding the nature of heroism in contemporary stories, particularly in post-apocalyptic fiction. Such stories present fictional worlds that exaggerate the need for a hero. In post-apocalyptic literature in which young adults are presented as society's best hope for renewal and reconstruction, the Hero's Journey takes on further meaning regarding the successful transition from childhood to adulthood. This thesis applies archetypal analysis to two contemporary post-apocalyptic novels for adolescent readers, Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower (1993) and Mike Mullin's Ashfall (2011), and considers the ways in which the protagonists fulfill Campbell's notion of the questing hero. Lauren Olamina, the central character of Butler's novel, becomes a world-changing hero who provides salvation for humanity. Alex Halprin, the protagonist of Ashfall, comes of age successfully in the face of extremely difficult circumstances and finds hope for the future. Each character offers a model of heroic growth from which readers can take inspiration.

The ancient hero's quest for glory offers metaphors for our own struggles to reach personal integrity and wholeness. In this compelling book, Van Nortwick traces the heroic journeys in three seminal works of ancient epic poetry, The Epic of Gilgamesh, Homer's Iliad, and Virgil's Aeneid. In particular, he focuses on the relationship of the hero to one or more second selves, or alter egos, showing how the poems address central truths about the cost of heroic self-assertion: that the pursuit of glory can lead to alienation from one's own deepest self, and that spiritual wholeness can only be achieved by confronting what appears, at first, to be the very negation of that self. With his unique combination of literary, psychological, and spiritual insights, Van Nortwick demonstrates the relevance of ancient literature to enduring human problems and to contemporary issues. Somewhere I Have never Travelled will interest anyone who wishes to explore the roots of human behavior and the relationship between life and art.

The original Star Wars trilogy famously follows Joseph Campbell's model for the hero's journey, making Luke Skywalker's story the new hero quest for a modern age. With the nine-plus film saga complete, however, new story patterns have emerged as the hero's journey is imagined over and over for characters of different ages, genders, and backgrounds. The prequels offer the plot arc of the villain's journey through Anakin. Leia and Padme, while damsels in the men's story, break out to undergo their own ordeals. The heroine's journey is exemplified by Rey and Jyn. Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Vader must accept the loss of power and fade into spirit guardians, perpetuating the lifecycle. By the sequel era, the original trio become mentors to the younger generation and finally must do the same. Meanwhile, the Mandalorian explores a different form of the quest as he transforms from immature warrior to patriarch. This book tracks the journeys of over 20 characters throughout the franchise.

The Fool s Excellent Adventure

The Fool's Excellent Adventure: A Hero's Journey through the Enneagram and Tarot is the first book to explore the relationship between two great systems: the tarot and the enneagram. The tarot provides us with images that can spark our creative imagination. The enneagram allows us to access the gifts of the nine personality types. Used together, they help us to re-imagine the world as a place of magical significance in which each of us has a unique role to play and a unique purpose to accomplish. The hero's journey depicted here is based on Joseph Campbell's mythic vision and Carl Jung's transformational approach to psychology. Two decades ago, in his book Tarot and the Journey of the Hero, Hajo Banzhaf used the hero's journey to develop a tarot model describing the symbolic role of the 21 cards in the major arcana. He depicted the first nine cards as the Arc of the Day (nine archetypal approaches to life), the second nine as the Arc of the Night (nine challenges associated with "shadow work"), and last three as the Goal state (representing the reconciliation of the opposites within our nature). There is one card left over: The Fool. This card depicts each of us as we move through life, never sure of what we'll find around the next bend! Using Pythagorean number symbolism, it's possible to match up the nine enneagram types with the nine paths envisioned by Banzhaf. The only thing missing is a complete Arc of the Goal (one with nine cards instead of three. This book shows what a complete Arc might look like by adding six new archetypal images, thus creating 27-card symbolic tarot. Such an enneagram-informed model allows the traditional symbolism of the tarot to be informed by the relational wisdom of the enneagram. You don't need to know the tarot or enneagram to use this book. The Fool's Excellent Adventure is intended for anyone with an interest in the tarot, the enneagram, or adventurous self-discovery. Additional topics: Discovering your Enneagram Type; Using the Enneagram in Tarot Divination; Using the Tarot to Re-discover the Enneagram; Enneagram-based Tarot Spreads; The Minor Arcana and the Enneagram; Applying the 27-Card Model with a Conventional Tarot Deck; The Transformational Implications of The Fool's "Quantum Zero"; The Animating Spirit of Hermetic Philosophy; The Role of the Enneagram in the Western Mystery Tradition; The Relationship between the Tarot, Enneagram and Qabala; Linking the Enneagram and Qabala through Sacred Geometry; and The Implications of the Golden Dawn's Tarot Attributions.
