About This Course

Published 6/2015 English

Course Description

Take Harry Potter, Spider Man, Kungfu Panda, and whoever you want to - they have something in common.

What if I told you they are all the variants of a same Hero.

Do you believe that?

Joseph Campbell did. He studied myths from all over the world and proposed Mankind's one greatest story called Mono-myth.

Why the same story has been told over and over again?

To remind us some of the cosmic laws that always work and divert us from the fantasies of our luring conscious minds to achieve something impossible.

Why do you need that?

Life is a conflict, we all need some strength to face it. Our course gives you exactly that, we just give you enough push to wake up your psyche to follow your bliss.

Having a mere knowledge of The Hero's Journey can unlock your own potential because the journey is all about us.

Review of the Students

  • Renee McGlothlin

Great Introduction to The Hero's Journey

This course is a very good introduction to, and explanation of, the 'mono-myth' of the Hero's Journey as first revealed by Joseph Campbell in 'Hero With A Thousand Faces'. I have been a Campbell fan for decades and still found this course helpful in further embracing his work. I highly recommend it. My only misgiving is that my American ear sometimes found the instructors accent difficult, to the point that I watched several of the videos more than once to fully comprehend him. But his grasp of the subject is very good indeed.

What are the requirements?

  • No software expertise is required - Just a noted pad and pen to write
  • Belief in oneself
  • Guts to follow the bliss
  • Perseverance in pursuing goals

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Learn all the stages of Hero's Journey in detail
  • Video examples for simple understanding
  • Pix with context for every stage of Hero's Journey
  • Course notes PDF - Complete
  • Complete downloadable lectures

What is the target audience?

  • Students - For unlocking hidden potential
