The Hero's Journey
Never watch a movie, read a book or see your life the same way again.
Based on the works of Joseph Campbell, an American mythologist, writer and lecturer, best known for his PBS series collaboration with Bill Moyers on “The Power of Myth, this series explores the ancient and timeless journey we find in our own lives.
Joseph Campbell's work reveals that our lives are ultimately connected by the framework of the same journey. Articulated through his years of research in the realm of comparative religion, he discovered that all of the world's major religions and stories from mythology follow a similar progression, and mix of key characters along the way: the Hero's Journey.
By investigating Campbell's Hero's Journey, we can discover where we are on our own path, helping us to navigate our way through the highs and lows that this life's journey presents us.
This four-session program will be a combination of lecture, mindful practice, reflective writing and group work. A journal or something to write in is recommended, but no other items are required. All you really need is the curiosity to explore the larger story and an desire to examine your own hero's journey.
No books are required, but Reflections on the Art of Living: A Joseph Campbell Companion, by Joseph Campbell is recommended for those who wish to explore even more on their own.
Alex Peavey received professional training in mindfulness under Jon Kabat-Zinn, and created the mindfulness program at Collegiate High School
