Over the past four years or so, the idea of The Hero's Journey has come up more and more often. My guest has built his entire practice around it, so for this episode we decided to go beyond the basic definitions and examples and do a deep dive. So for starters, what is it about this archetypal rendition of the classic hero story that is so riveting to us as men? Joseph Campbell's idea of powerful myth has fueled atheistic thought, but is that really the only logical perspective one can take? How does The Hero's Journey speak to universal truth not only in how we as humans attempt to comprehend the universe, but also in how we process the pattern of our own lives? And what's more, how does it all matter to YOU in becoming the best 'big four' man of character you can be? What does The Hero's Journey tell us about patience, virtue and the importance of mentorship? Why is it so important to leave home, only to ultimately return? How does The Hero's Journey narrative help us reconcile 'Imposter Syndrome'? Who is 'The Goddess' and how does she empower us to be better with women? Why is it that the most interesting part of The Hero's Journey comes right before the end? And how come 'hero' is such a loaded term, such that few accept being referred to as one? By the way, is there such thing as 'The Anti-Hero's Journey'? Be the hero in your own life...and in the lives of women everywhere. It all starts with a free 25-minute phone call with me.
