  1. I have re-uploaded this video without any swear words. So teachers can show their students.
    The Hero's Journey: Teachers edition: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eNun-x_s2Y&t=22s&ab_channel=RAWSpirituality

  2. You’re ALL Over the Place,
    seemingly unscripted, and
    did very little to honor the
    gist of Campbell’s framework.

  3. Brilliant stuff man! Subbed.
    You should invest in a better mike though. The sound quality does not match the quality of the content.

  4. I discovered Joseph Campbell when I was your age and I cannot tell you how great this is to see your generation find him again.
    His work and understanding is the best way that I have found to help all of us make sense of this ordinary and seemingly senseless ( and often brutal, ) life. I'm going to use your very well organized presentation with my students. Thank you so much…subscribed.

  5. How are you going to discuss Joseph Campbell and his theories about the hero and not once mention any examples from Greek or Roman or Egyptian mythology? I understand you want to use examples that people are familiar with, but some of the things you were talking about are far better exampled in stories like Hercules, Odysseus and Jason and the Argonauts

  6. Too much repeating old ideas. Have a new look at this material: https://medium.com/the-gentle-revolution/a-new-heros-journey-cdd8ca77a7d3

  7. ive been actually studing this thing as well but with other religious concepts. the AUM. A is the creation of the idea . U is the implementation of the idea running the simulation. and M is the end where you can rest quit critic get feed back where you can begin with A creation of new systems to better it all. U run it again v1.2. then M the feed back.

    One day Jesus told a story in the form of a parable to a large crowd that had gathered from many towns to hear him: 5“A farmer went out to plant his seed. As he scattered it across his field, some seed fell on a footpath, where it was stepped on, and the birds ate it. 6Other seed fell among rocks. It began to grow, but the plant soon wilted and died for lack of moisture. 7Other seed fell among thorns that grew up with it and choked out the tender plants. 8Still other seed fell on fertile soil. This seed grew and produced a crop that was a hundred times as much as had been planted!” When he had said this, he called out, “Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”

    9His disciples asked him what this parable meant. 10He replied, “You are permitted to understand the secretsa of the Kingdom of God. But I use parables to teach the others so that the Scriptures might be fulfilled:
    ‘When they look, they won’t really see. When they hear, they won’t understand.’

    11“This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is God’s word/calling. 12The seeds that fell on the footpath represent those who hear the message, only to have the devil(the negative mind/negative people) come and take it away from their hearts and prevent them from believing and being saved. 13The seeds on the rocky soil represent those who hear the message and receive it with joy. But since they don’t have deep roots, they believe for a while, then they fall away when they face temptation(no sounding habits is built in the mind). 14The seeds that fell among the thorns represent those who hear the message, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the cares and riches and pleasures of this life. And so they never grow into maturity.(distractions of life) 15And the seeds that fell on the good soil represent honest, good-hearted people who hear God’s word, cling to it, and patiently produce a huge harvest.

  10. 12 steps of the hero's journey, 12 constellations the sun passes on it's journey, 12 disciples who follow the messiah.

  11. "Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls." Get stoned and eat ice cream. Got it.

  12. It is written, “When the student is ready, the master appears”.
    This vid is very inspirational.
    Thank you very much, master.

  13. Through meditation, I found a sense of liberation, rising to a new vibration.

    I found the universe within, as I saw my atoms spin, I could hear them sing.

    Walking alone, feeling chilled to the bone, in search of the philosopher’s stone.

    Traversing the darkness, improved my sharpness, my fears became harmless
    .

    Facing the dragon inside, with my eye open wide, it is time to swallow my pride.

    Eternal victory, from endless loss, a rolling stone gathers no moss
    .

    To give is to receive, to take is to deceive, so let’s roll up our sleeves.

    We have what it takes, to make the earth shake, with the knowledge we obtained from the snake.

    The morning star shining so bright, signalling the end of the dark night.

  14. Thank-you for making this video, it is a GREAT summary of not only Joseph Campbells "Hero's Journey", but is also the essence of our greatest mythologies, now expressed in modern entertainment. Many blessings to you!

  15. I fear myself, I've entered the "cave" of the shadow, it's far more terrifying than anything I've ever encountered in the external manifestation. It challenges the very understanding of reality and duality. My darkness isn't unique but a connection to the human condition.

  16. For anyone needing a quick easy ready, and who does not already know, try "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. It goes along nicely with this, and is a good place to start.

  17. I feel like I might be a superhero. My path was shown to me and I am lost in my mind caught up in drug abuse and mental illness… I meditate everyday to stay higher up

  18. this is astrology! encoded or perhaps decoded( by Campbell ) for the human mythos and psyche. all the symbology in campbells work proves it, and that there are 12 steps etc…the ordinary world , special world etc. emphasizing the suns journey…any syncretist will tell you this, and @00:44 is so clear, the hero's journey begins in Cancer at the top of the circle,(the sun in summer), the sun follows till it passes over(the threshold) which is the pass-over of the equator. the "fall" of the sun in winter, then in Capricorn it begins its return. finally ending in the spring or "Aries"(the first sign or house of the Zodiac , which is beginning again, the cycle….

    this tells me Campbell had incredible understanding of the hidden mystery schools, and used this as his model for the psyche, syncretizing astrology, and the path of the human on his/her journey also through the celestial,, and incarnation cycles…free yourself from the circle. that is your purpose…stay in the circle and you are there forever, until you realiize, you can be free of the circular trap….

  19. Feminist below comment ,no women hero,s on the vid, women are hero,s to us men they dont need to push their female agenda ,we adore women who are women ,not feminist,s who want to fight against us men ,just saying and you,s all end up lonely ,angry ,and protesting for feminism ,have a boring ,life ,cause thats what your creating ,us men run from your type who shout this all the time , getting very stale ……from uk

  20. Does anyone else think that many stories and entertainment media today have way too many female main characters be Mary Sues and never go through the Hero’s Journey?

  21. I started the documentary on the hero`s journey but it was a bit too long and could not hook me. i broke it up and came for this video and must say that you have done a really great job with it! Love it!

  22. I am mystified by your knowledge. 30 years now and its still brand new for me. All tho I know it earlier, I like to say, the search for truth become for me in 1989. There are many on this platform with a similar narrative to this here. And it all corroborates what I have learnt,and through work like this we will all wake up to the real life that exists. We need to gently shake each other out of the dream we’re in, cause there’s sleeping pills in the water, but that’s no matter

  23. It's insane people have experienced all the same thing, yet the world would call us crazy and not believe us. What I experienced was every single step, and I know it was real.

  24. Sychrnocity. This video came to me just when I needed to see it. I now know the universe is trying to open doors for me and I am finally ready to step through. I have to be ready. Thank you for this video and good luck to everyone else on their journey 🙏

  25. It doesn’t make sense that goku is in the thumbnail cause he never changes mentally. He is a positive flat character arc where he changes the world around them for the better, but the hero has to learn and overcome obstacles and even themselves to get to that point. Goku doesn’t change and isn’t written to change with a hero’s journey structure so I feel your using goku to get clicks.
