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.
