The Call (our blog)
In his seminal work,The Hero with a Thousand Faces, author Joseph Campbell decodes the hero myth and set the widely-accepted standard for story structure. A standard part of that structure is the hero’s initial “refusal of the call” to action.
It’s not uncommon for people to refuse to take action – especially when it means stepping into the unknown. But when the hero heeds the call to action, they are rewarded for their courage and their lives are never the same again.
We invite you to read The Call, and we welcome your comments. Enjoy.
