Darkness on the Hero’s Journey
In the “Hero’s Journey,” Joseph Campbell provides a roadmap of the stages we go through to carry accomplish missions not just for ourselves but for the greater good: Separation, Initiation, and Return, all necessary stops on the healing path.
The hero’s journey is not only a wonderful road map for understanding epic myths and creating larger-than-life fiction, but a path for ourselves whether we’re seekers on the path or spiritual healers.
We have to experience the darkness as a seed experiences the the earth during the gathering of forces time of winter.
Very nice article by Lisa Shaw.
Malcolm R. Campbell is the author of the hero’s journey novel “The Sun Singer” and the heroine’s journey novel “Sarabande.”
