Joseph Campbellâ€™s theories on mythology and the Heroâ€™s Journey connect mythology to our everyday lived realities. In this module, you learned that all myths follow the arc of the Heroâ€™s Journey and that the Heroâ€™s Journey is as influenced by real-life experiences as it is the inspiration for future human creation.
Instructions: Think of a time in your life in which you have participated in the path of the Heroâ€™s Journey. You could have been any of the main charactersâ€”the hero or a figure supporting the hero.
Use a free online application (Canva, Piktochart, etc.) to create an infographic that includes an explanation of the following:
- Each of the ten steps of the Heroâ€™s Journey as it relates to your situation
- Which role you play
- What the call to adventure was
- How the journey unfolded during each of the ten steps
Your infographic should be saved as a PDF document.
