Revisioning Your Hero's Journey®: A Mythological Toolbox (26th ed., revised)

Mar 24 - 29, 2019 Begins in 5 months
with Robert Walter & The Joseph Campbell Foundation

Joseph Campbell liked to celebrate his birthday (March 26th) at Esalen. Explaining why, he'd recount Carl Jung's wondering, "What myth am I living by?" and realizing he didn't know, writing "I took it upon myself to get to know 'my' myth, and I regarded this as the task of tasks." "That's what a birthday is for," Campbell would conclude, "and what Esalen is about." In 1988, five months after Campbell's death, his friends gathered at Esalen for "Campbell Week," a tradition that has morphed into this Playshop.
