Heroes and heroines: myth and reality

At last: Joseph Campbell’s book ’Hero With a Thousand Faces’ has been published in Swedish. Not a decade too soon! At the launch party yesterday we saw (again) Bill Moyers’ wonderful interview with Campbell. Campbell’s face lights up as he speaks about the heroic journey of each and every one of us. He points out that the original heroic journey is our own birth, as we struggle to leave our safe womb and take our place in a new and dangerous world.

It’s true, every one of us is a hero/ine. If we can manage that amazing journey, that amazing transition, then surely we can do anything. When did you leave on your last heroic journey? Or are you just preparing for one? Tell your story!
