by Jamaal Fort, specialist in PTSD, Human Performance, Smoke Ending, etc.

"In my own work in human performance, I have been developing a program that helps veterans get the training they need to become adjunct counselors, therapists, and trainers to the many mental health professionals currently working with veterans. The program satisfies their desire to be of service to their fellow veterans while allowing them to heal throughout the process. Completing the cycle means turning warriors into healers. Armed now with a new identity, these brave men and women can play an active role in their healing."

The Hero’s Journey Can Guide Businesses in the Transition to a Circular Economy [category: Business]

The Hero’s Journey Can Guide Businesses in the Transition to a Circular Economy [category: Business]

From: https://vault.mcad.edu/islandora/object/MASD%3A34/datastream/OBJ/view

"The Hero’s Journey to the Circular Economy: Exploring the Role of Storytelling in the Transition from a Linear Economy to a Circular Economy"
by Shari Welsh, MA in Sustainable Design, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Thesis, April 11, 2014

... Society’s predominant economic model is built around a linear, “take, make, waste” approach to development. It designs for short--‐term obsolescence that comes at great social, economic and environmental costs. A variety of sustainability solutions have been developed to respond to the wide array of problems that exist with the linear economy model. However, many of these solutions do not deal with the underlying systemic problems of the linear model and are often simply add--‐ons to our current linear system.
 
The circular economy is a different type of model that has been developed to address the problems presented by the linear economy. The circular economy is regenerative by design and is based upon several key principles: design out waste, build resilience through diversity, shift to renewable energy sources, think in systems and think in cascades. The circular economy model allows us to reconsider our relationship to products by exploring two key areas: product redesign and system redesign, both of which provide the opportunity for value--‐creation on many levels.
 
Storytelling, and specifically Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, is a powerful tool for encouraging social change and transformation. The Hero’s Journey is a story pattern that crosses religions, generations and cultures. It describes an ordinary person who ventures through multiple steps of a journey on a quest for achieving a greater good for the rest of society. The Hero’s Journey offers a unique perspective that can be used to guide businesses in the transition from a linear economy to a circular economy. The obstacles and opportunities one encounters during the 12 steps of the Hero’s Journey can be mapped to the parallel obstacles and opportunities one encounters when exploring the transformations required to move from a linear to a circular economy....

Here she discusses Parallels Between the Circular Economy and the Hero's Journey:

... The Hero’s Journey offers a unique perspective that can be used to guide businesses in the transition from a linear economy to a circular economy. The Hero’s Journey has parallel struggles, obstacles and victories to those one would experience in taking the journey toward a circular economy. A direct parallel can be drawn to the three primary stages described above. In the separation stage, an individual—perhaps a business owner or an employee—decides to pursue the higher calling of looking for opportunities to move the business’ model away from the destructive linear economy model to one that does not destroy as it creates. During the initiation phase when one crosses the threshold into the special world—in this case into the circular economy and the opportunities that exist there—the business owner, the company, the products, and the stakeholders will all encounter a series of tests. And, during the return stage, the business owner—and at this stage the company—will be able to bring the knowledge, rewards and inspiration of the circular economy back to the “ordinary world.”....

Plan Meeting Agendas By Incorporating Principles of the Hero’s Journey [category: Business]

Dave Gray of GameStorming presents a game for planning meeting agendas by incorporating principles of the Hero's Journey. (The image (above) is a circular image from the website depicting the hero's journey applied to meeting planning.)

From: https://gamestorming.com/heros-journey-agenda/
"The Hero’s Journey Agenda is a unique and different way to lay out the agenda for a meeting or workshop that creates a sense of adventure and builds anticipation for the meeting.... The hero’s journey basically has two big components to it. There is the known world, which are the things that we kind of already know, the regular work and so forth. There’s the unknown, which are the things that we hope we will discover and explore during the course of this meeting."

The Hero’s Journey as a Developmental Metaphor in Counseling [category: Therapy]

The Hero’s Journey as a Developmental Metaphor in Counseling [category: Therapy]

From Wiley Online Library
https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/j.2164-490X.2005.tb00026.x

"The Hero's Journey as a Developmental Metaphor in Counseling"
by GERARD LAWSON

"It has been argued that the goal of counseling is development. Through the use of J. Campbell's (1949) treatment of the hero's journey as a conceptual metaphor, this article describes development as a journey and illustrates how the counselor's understanding of the journey can assist the client's development."

Joseph Campbell Is the Discoverer of the Monomyth, or Hero’s Journey [category: Joseph Campbell]

Joseph Campbell Is the Discoverer of the Monomyth, or Hero’s Journey [category: Joseph Campbell]

Joseph Campbell may be said to have "discovered" the hero's journey within the myths of all cultures. He described its 12 stages as what he called the Monomyth in his classic work, The Hero With a Thousand Faces. The hero's journey was later adapted for modern-day screenwriters by Chris Vogler (see Hero Wisdom > Chris Vogler) and in story-writing software (see Hero Tools > StoryCraft Hero-Story Writing Software). See also Vogler's description of Campbell's work on the hero's journey at Hero Wisdom > Chris Vogler.

"Joseph Campbell, born on March 26, 1904, in New York City, studied Native American folklore as a child and went on to become a Sarah Lawrence professor. He was a renowned presenter of unifying concepts in comparative mythology with books like The Hero With a Thousand Faces, The Power of Myth and The Masks of God. He died in Honolulu, Hawaii, on October 30, 1987, with a PBS interview series released in 1988." (From https://www.biography.com/people/joseph-campbell-9236309)

Though many videos have been recorded of Campbell, the most famous are from the series of Bill Moyers's PBS interviews broadcast in 1988.

Bill Moyers and mythologist Joseph Campbell begin their groundbreaking and timeless conversation with an exploration of the classic hero cycle, including consistent and enduring hero patterns in literature, real life and even the Star Wars films. Campbell also encourages the audience to view parts of their own lives as heroic journeys. In a clip from the first episode, Campbell encourages the audience to discover what excites them, and make that the basis for their personal journeys.

Seeing Sports as a Reflection of the Hero’s Journey [category: Sports as Journey]

Russell Hirsch discusses the relationship of sports to the hero's journey in his website, StoryThreads.

From https://russellfhirsch.wordpress.com/2017/02/05/sports-stories-spirituality-a-trinity/

"Sports, Stories & Spirituality: A Trinity" (originally posted Feb.5, 2017)

... But there is a subtler, deeper level than that: In this blog, I usually talk about story structure and the resonant, even mystical underlying foundations from which stories draw their power. I believe the rules of many sports are likewise symbolic of the same ancient wisdom as stories.
        In my posts on the Hero’s Journey, I reference Joseph Campbell, Christopher Vogler, and others who envision stories as having a cyclical shape. A character is thrust into a new situation and has to deal with it. Often they literally have to venture out, earn something of value, and return home. In his book, The Writer’s Journey, Vogler notes how similar this is to a baseball diamond. A player circles the bases and returns home with something of value—literally—a point for their team.

Game of Heroes Lesson Plan Explores Myth Through Interactive Fiction

Game of Heroes Lesson Plan Explores Myth Through Interactive Fiction

Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute
Game of Heroes: Exploring Myth through Interactive (Non) Fiction
by William C. Wagoner
http://teachersinstitute.yale.edu/curriculum/units/2013/1/13.01.11.x.html#b

In this middle school unit on mythology, Joseph Campbell's Monomyth cycle will be the tool to analyze the hero's journey of both fictional and non fictional figures. Students will compare and contrast the biographical account of a real life hero with the mythical quest of a demigod; Theseus and Hercules can be studied side by side with Gandhi and Martin Luther King. Students will ultimately fuse their understandings of the metaphorical journey to view their own selves as heroes through their experiences of challenge and reward in the past and the potential opportunities and treasures of the future. Students will understand that the vast plethora of modern day superheroes, video game avatars, and movie stars, all form and inform our personal mythologies, or way of viewing and imagining the world, and that all of them follow the same general pattern. Almost any hero (from any medium and from any culture) can be studied with this unit, depending on student interests and teacher preference.

        The final project of the unit will be the creation of a text based computer adventure game, or "interactive (non)fiction." Students will use what they have learned about the Hero's Journey and the obstacles, settings, adventures, monsters, and rewards along the way to create their own playable hero's journey using a simple yet powerful tool called the Inform engine.

        As an interactive story-game, students will design a space where players can make experience the lives of their favorite heroes, whether fictional or historical, as they create and explore their world, make important choices along the way, and strive to complete their quest. A deeper level of immersion and identifying with the hero's journey can occur through reflecting on the choices one can make in the game. And hopefully this unit will convey an identification of the student as a hero figure in his or her own life, with the power to conquer fear and the unknown through personal choices and the aid of others.

For Gold Members, the centerpiece of The Hero Place is StoryCraft 10 at The Hero Place, the only writing software program in the world based entirely on the Hero’s Journey Paradigm! Operating within The Hero Place, it is a revolutionary new kind of story-creation experience, an entire wisdom experience, allowing you not just to create stories but to experience and appreciate every aspect of, and use of, the hero’s journey concept, as you create your stories! (For full access to The Hero Place With StoryCraft, order the Gold Membership; for access only to StoryCraft, order separately here.)

Because it utilizes the hero’s journey archetypes common to all great stories and myths, it is ideal for expressing every kind of story, even stories based on your own life experience.

While professional writers use StoryCraft to develop novels & screenplays, anyone can use it just for the pure joy of expressing yourself through your own non-judgmental creative imagination.

In fact, you can use StoryCraft for therapy too, as it gives you the freedom to delve into any traumas or challenges you have faced in your life — even making up characters and situations that may mirror your own experiences while giving you the emotional distance of “just being a story” — to see yourself as a hero on a journey. [more]

And it’s fully compatible with mobile devices as well as desktop and tablet.
The hero’s journey is a concept as old as mythology. Yet it has quietly gained prominence in a broad range of applications, from self-development and wellness to customer engagement to trauma therapy as well as story creation and countless other uses to better understand the human condition and drive to succeed.

In story development, it is used in most modern movies, especially ever since the original Star Wars. The Hero’s Journey captures the imagination, inspires, and motivates because it taps into our most fundamental search for meaning.


The Hero Place is the place for understanding, promoting, and utilizing the power of the hero’s journey principle.
