meeting your dragon
It was 1988 when The Power of Myth aired on PBS. When I watched, listened and considered the words and expressions Joseph was relating, I knew I would make it. I still had no idea how or at what but here was a man who's work I could study for the rest of my life.
That is what I intend to do on this post; Illustrate through story, narrative, film and what ever means necessary, the effect of Joseph's work on my life and how I have chosen to live it.
I culminated my study of Joe's work by visiting his private library that was donated to Pacifica Graduate Institute in the hills of Carpentria (spanish for carpenter) 20 some odd years latter in 2010.
This morsel of film is available through the gracious actions of the Joseph Campbell Foundation, where I highly recommend one to go to find many sources of Joseph's work. (the link is pasted in below)
Please enjoy this brief clip from (I believe) conversation #1 The Hero's Adventure, The Power of Myth.
Stayed tuned for more…
