Availability: Ready to download

In The Rebirth of the Hero, Keiron Le Grice draws on the ideas and life experiences of C. G. Jung, Joseph Campbell, and Friedrich Nietzsche to explore the spiritual journey of the modern self, from existential crisis and the "awakening of the self" to the dramatic encounter with the underworld of the psyche and the arduous labor of spiritual transformation. In a work of wi In The Rebirth of the Hero, Keiron Le Grice draws on the ideas and life experiences of C. G. Jung, Joseph Campbell, and Friedrich Nietzsche to explore the spiritual journey of the modern self, from existential crisis and the "awakening of the self" to the dramatic encounter with the underworld of the psyche and the arduous labor of spiritual transformation. In a work of wide-ranging scope and penetrating insight, Le Grice analyzes scenes from a number of popular films--Jason and the Argonauts, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Pan's Labyrinth, and more--to illuminate the themes and stages of psychospiritual rebirth and individuation, helping to make the deepest of transformative experiences more readily accessible and intelligible to us all. Drawing interchangeably on classical Greek myths, Christianity, alchemy, Romanticism, and depth psychology, the author also relates the individual's personal journey of transformation to the relationship in Western civilization between spirit and nature, reason and instinct, and masculine and feminine. In so doing, The Rebirth of the Hero demonstrates the critical significance of the archetypal pattern of the hero not only for the individual, but also for cultural renewal and the wider spiritual transformation of our time.

    Jung, Nietzsche, Campbell ideas and principles illustrated with old&modern mythologic narritives such as Odysseus, lord of the rings, star wars and good writing.... what's not to like 😉 A work that puts the puzzle pieces together. I am left inspired and hungry to continue my individuation journey 😄🙏 Jung, Nietzsche, Campbell ideas and principles illustrated with old&modern mythologic narritives such as Odysseus, lord of the rings, star wars and good writing.... what's not to like 😉 A work that puts the puzzle pieces together.

    Wonderful application of a mythological understanding of life, as well as its place in modern society. I would advise that you have at least a casual familiarity with Jung and Joseph Campbell before reading, as the author expands on their ideas.
