This cd/dvd ranks as one of my top 5 most important encounters in my life (I am now 66). His breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding and his uniquely human methodology of transferring this to a listener/viewer is superb.Rarely can anyone have dealt with such potentially archaic and disinteresting (for the modern world) data in such an inspiring way. Indeed, thanks to J Campbell, Myth,Fable and Folklore have been re-instated in society as (to quote him quoting Jung) 'archetypes of the subconscious'.
I challenge you not to find something of value, interest and inspiration in these amazing talks given by a natural and gifted communicator with a passion for his topic that is neither 'other-worldly' nor arrogant..
Episode 1-The Hero's adventure.
We only have to follow the hero's long gone,and go through the Labyrinth, following the thread and where we thought we would find an abomination,we shall find a God. Where we have thought to slay another,we shall slay ourselves. Where we have thought to travel outwards,we shall come to the center of our existence.(introduction).
Stories of hero's in mythology, is beyond the normal range of Human experience and is bigger then themselves. The physical Act,a war act, is in saving others. The spiritual hero has gone on an inner adventure,and has returned. Jesus and Buddha each had three temptations which they overcame. Their followers did not understand their message.Generally,their original idea turns to ashes. The achievement of the hero, is that he is ready for the adventure and it is the one he gets.Read more ›
This brilliant DVD shows how myths and religious stories can transcend the limitations of language by using imagery that speaks to peoples of all nations, overcoming the boundaries of misunderstanding and uniting us in a shared experience. Campbell's thoughts are enlightening and enthralling, giving rise to revelation, intrigue and further questions as to the nature of who we are and how we interact with the wider world. His respect for the natural world also makes itself apparent and there is a great deal to be learned from these interviews.
This is highly recommended viewing for anyone concerned with human nature and how we perceive ourselves, along with our place in the grand scheme of things.
He is a very engaging and affable interviewee without being overly academic. The series provides a
great insight into how myths, no matter how ancient, mould and inform our attitudes and rituals today.
Joseph Campbell's mantra is 'Follow your bliss' - a kind of 'seize your inner destiny' philosophy. Pursue it,
he advises and you will gravitate towards contentment. A very life-affirming and humane perspective.
I couldn't recommend this sage's pearls of wisdom more highly!
