Journey Circles

In this category, we are presenting the many graphics found on the internet that illustrate the pattern of the hero’s journey with a circle, wheel or other graphical representation of the circular nature of the journey. For each graphic, we wish to indicate who created the graphic, including the web address where it appears as well as other websites where it has been used. Often these graphics appear on other organizations’ or individuals’ websites without attribution, so we invite our visitors to help us identify the graphic by using the Comment part of the particular graphic post.
