Joseph Campbell, arguably the greatest mythologist of our time, was certainly one of our greatest storytellers. Hero's Journey recounts his own quest and conveys the excitement of his life-long exploration of our mythic traditions, which he called 'the one great story of mankind'. This lyrical book interweaves conversations with Campbell and some of the people he inspired, including poet Robert Bly, anthropologist Angeles Arrien, filmmaker David Kennard, musician John Densmore, and others.
"Though the book is rich with examples drawn from myths and Jungian psychology, it is surprisingly easy to read. The journey requires serious, often frightening, wandering before one's true identity and power are known. Like the journey Murdock describes, there are no cheap, easy lessons.

""The Heroine's ""Journey "offers a map of the feminine healing process. Murdock writes in a clear and compassionate voice which draws inspiration from her experiences as a mother, artist, and therapist and from the collective wisdom of the community of women on the path of the goddess. This book speaks to each woman who longs for a spiritually alive feminine self, one who is actively engaged in the world, and who embraces the masculine principle as a mirror of herself. "The Heroine's Journey "guides the reader in reweaving the threads of her life story into a mantle of empowerment for herself, for other women, and for Gaia, the Planet Herself."--Patrice Wynne, author of "The Womanspirit Sourcebook "and co-founder of the Gaia Bookstore and Catalogue Company
"Maureen Murdock's important book on the heroine's journey contains a wealth of insight that is of great value to contemporary Western women. It explores a rich territory of the feminine psyche and opens an understanding of female developmen
