Joseph Campbell

    There is so much to say about this wonderful man. A leading authority on mythology and comparative religion. A man who knew that he didn't know and in so doing became the knower. Joseph believed that each life was a journey of mythic proportions. Rejoice in your life for it is the expression of "God". Religion and mythology (synonymous at their root) are the metaphors, the "help guides", to living an experience rich life. Living true to who you are or to quote Campbell himself, "To follow your bliss!"  These books should be read by everyone. This is a man you would like to introduce into your life and the lives of  friends, family, and children. 
    He has several video/DVDs also. They are great entertainment and there is so much to learn while watching. 


   The Power of Myth Among his many gifts, Joseph Campbell's most impressive was the unique ability to take a contemporary situation, such as the murder and funeral of President John F. Kennedy, and help us understand its impact in the context of ancient mythology. Herein lies the power of The Power of Myth, showing how humans are apt to create and live out the themes of mythology. Based on a six-part PBS television series hosted by Bill Moyers, this classic is especially compelling because of its engaging question-and-answer format, creating an easy, conversational approach to complicated and esoteric topics. For example, when discussing the mythology of heroes, Campbell and Moyers smoothly segue from the Sumerian sky goddess Inanna to Star Wars' mercenary-turned-hero, Han Solo. Most impressive is Campbell's encyclopedic knowledge of myths, demonstrated in his ability to recall the details and archetypes of almost any story, from any point and history, and translate it into a lesson for spiritual living in the here and now. --Gail Hudson (

The Hero with a Thousand Faces Originally written by Campbell in the '40s-- in his pre-Bill Moyers days -- and famous as George Lucas' inspiration for "Star Wars," this book will likewise inspire any writer or reader in its well considered assertion that while all stories have already been told, this is *not* a bad thing, since the *retelling* is still necessary. And while our own life's journey must always be ended alone, the travel is undertaken in the company not only of immediate loved ones and primal passion, but of the heroes and heroines -- and myth-cycles -- that have preceded us. (

Myths to Live by The brilliant author of The Masks of God shares his ideas and speculations on our universal myths, in a fascinating, very personal work which explores the enduring power of the myths that influence our lives and examines the myth-making process from the primitive past to the immediate present.
