The Hero's Journey – a roadmap to greater self-awareness – Gunnel Watkins
About the Presentation
In this presentation we will identify the stages of the ‘monomyth’ or ‘Hero's Journey’ as outlined by Joseph Campbell, reflecting on why it continues to be such an important narrative, often reaching beyond the culture of origin e.g., the Holy Grail stories, The Ring Cycle by Wagner and the epic Lord of the Rings.
We will explore through a transpersonal lens how we can apply the ‘hero's’ journey’ today as a guide for living where crisis and transitions can be viewed as opportunities to move forward to greater self – realisation.
