What aspects of Joseph Campbell's works interest you the most - myth, philosophy, art, ritual, psychology, metaphysics, hero cycles, story telling, anthropology, spiritual journeys, self-development, modern individualism etc

The use of the hero's cycle and the monomyth in stories is of particular interest.

What's your favourite Joseph Campbell book/film/lecture/interview?

The Hero With a Thousand Faces

What is your favourite mythological character or topic?

Heracles, but only because he's seen as the default hero for the cycle. I could cheat and say "Luke Skywalker" but, to be honest, I'm not a big fan of the Star Wars movies.

How did you hear about our group?

I scrolled down a bit. "Hey, that's something I'm interested in. How about that."
