Every Day is a Hero’s Journey

“A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: The hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.” - Joseph Campbell

The Hero’s Journey is a mythic image for anything that leads us out from the familiar into the unknown, that brings us face-to-face with our doubts and awakens our courage, that reveals a treasure in exactly the place where we once feared to look.

From ancient myths to Marvel to Star Wars, we love stories of heroes fighting evil, defending the innocent, and saving the galaxy. They are powerful symbols of our own capacity to act courageously.
