Inspirations – Life as a Heroic Journey

Creative Pilgrim is inspired by my many influences, practices and experiences. I bring together a state of mind and cultural forces that put me – and you – on the path to creativity and learning.

Life as a Heroic Journey

The American mythologist and author Joseph Campbell understood that all humans, across time and cultures, are called to adventures in their lives. When I was first introduced to his work 25 years ago, Campbell spoke to me deeply about the learning journeys we are all challenged to take, and the universal call to be heroic in our own lives. Over the past two decades, my teaching and my artistic creations have explored this journey and draw on powerful archetypal elements found in myths.

“I don’t believe that people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.”
– Joseph Campbell
