Finding Joe: The Mythology of Joseph Campbell

If you haven’t heard of Joseph Campbell here’s a place to start: Finding Joe. It’s  a movie that discusses his ideas and his and our relationship to mythology. Out of it comes the theory that mythical stories are a metaphor for our lives, that the heroes journey is a quest that we are all must take. That it is continually played out in ancient and modern culture as a representation of an inner journey. Many of our modern movies play with the same heroic quests that have been told forever.

Joseph Campbell leaves us with a simple reminder of “follow your bliss” and his belief: “I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive”

I hope this movie leaves you feeling more alive and supports that part of you that is ready to do battle with your dragon.

It certainly did for me!
