Forgiveness by Cindy Currier Summary

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. - Joseph Campbell What Cindy Currier teaches us is that everyone has the potential to be a hero. Despite years spent struggling with her troubled past, Cindy finally found the strength to let go of her trauma and move forward into a life of happiness and peace. Though this kind of healing can require a monumental amount of strength and temerity, Forgiveness: A Hero's Journey shows that any feat can be accomplished through determination and faith in God's love. Once lost in the woods of despair and hatred, Cindy faced down witches, ogres and all manner of beasts before emerging once more into the sunlight. Now, in simple sections and with heartfelt words, she explores the nature of Anger, Fear, Shame, Guilt, and ultimately Forgiveness and how it can be achieved. The journey to forgiveness is cyclical: It begins with a call to adventure (dissatisfaction with life as it is), and is followed closely by chaos (a life event that calls into question old beliefs and thought patterns), battling enemies (marshaling new coping skills and strategies), spiritual awakening (development of new insights, new self-awareness), and carrying the message home (sharing new insights with others). Following these steps will enable anyone to overcome the monsters of anger and shame and emerge from the forest into forgiveness and love, and to share that love with the world.

Mythological Storytelling by Joshua Coker Summary

As a fiction writer, the goal is to create a story that has an emotional impact on the audience. We all want to write something gripping that people will share with friends and family; a narrative that resonates with the reader, and keeps them revisiting the book for years to come. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. No matter how logical we structure our story, or how perfectly we write our prose, many of us fail to capture the power that all great stories seem to inherently possess. Even well known professionals face this problem. Think about how many times you've picked up a book by a writer you follow, or watched the latest installment in a franchise you love, only to be let down. How many forgettable novels or films have you come across in your lifetime? Some written by reputable authors and screenwriters. Even though the action, mystery, or romance was great, the story fell flat. The narrative lacked some mystical element that every great story seems to inherently possess. This is the major problem every author, writer, poet, screenwriter, and storyteller face. The answer is found in the power of myth. Through centuries of storytelling, a mythological structure called the Monomyth evolved. Some of the most powerful stories of all follow this mythic structure. In this book, fiction author Josh Coker explains how to harness the seemingly magical powers of myth so your story can reach it's fullest potential and create an emotional impact in the audience. Within these pages, you'll learn: -Definition and background of the Monomyth -Three act mythic structure. -The differences between the known world and the special world of your story -What really makes a character heroic -How plot and character feed off of each other, creating both an inner and outer journey -The 18 distinct stages of the Hero's Journey Additionally, this book provides over 72 examples from well known modern stories. Each example will help you understand Hero's Journey, and help you identify the stages in your own book. Every chapter concludes with action steps, which you can immediately take on your story. These will help you infuse mythic power and life into the narrative. By the end of the book, you'll have a basic understanding of the Hero's Journey and a road map for your own story. Ultimately, you'll ensure that your story to reaches it's full potential by taking full advantage of the Monomyth's ancient storytelling secrets.

The Monomyth in American Science Fiction Films by Donald E. Palumbo Summary

One of the great intellectual achievements of the 20th century, Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces is an elaborate articulation of the monomyth: the narrative pattern underlying countless stories from the most ancient myths and legends to the films and television series of today. The monomyth's fundamental storyline, in Campbell's words, sees "the hero venture forth from the world of the common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons to his fellow man." Campbell asserted that the hero is each of us--thus the monomyth's endurance as a compelling plot structure. This study examines the monomyth in the context of Campbell's The Hero and discusses the use of this versatile narrative in 26 films and two television shows produced between 1960 and 2009, including the initial Star Wars trilogy (1977-1983), The Time Machine (1960), Logan's Run (1976), Escape from New York (1981), Tron (1982), The Terminator (1984), The Matrix (1999), the first 11 Star Trek films (1979-2009), and the Sci Fi Channel's miniseries Frank Herbert's Dune (2000) and Frank Herbert's Children of Dune (2003).

By analyzing the Iliad and the Odyssey Josh Coker identifies each classic stages of the Hero's Journey.What is the Monomyth?The term "Monomyth" comes from the Greek. It is broken into two root words: 1) mono, meaning "one", and 2) mythos, meaning "story." The connotation being, the "One Story." This term was coined by author James Joyce in his most famous work, Ulysses (the Roman name for Odysseus). However, it wasn't popularized until the late 1940's when a comparative mythologist by the name of Joseph Campbell, published his seminal work, The Hero With A Thousand Faces. In his book, Campbell suggested that there are common aspects that nearly all myths throughout time have shared. These elements combine into a narrative format that can be used as an approach to mythology. Many people associate the "Hero's Journey" as synonymous with The Monomyth. Both, historical and modern storytellers have used it as an approach to analyze narratives and develop new plots and characters for contemporary audiences. According to Campbell, the Monomyth follows a three-act structure. In the first act, The Separation, a hero is called to adventure and leaves his known world for the unknown world, guided by a mentor. Once the hero crosses the threshold of adventure, they enter the second act, The Initiation. In this section, the hero faces many tests and trials, confronts his inner demons (many times represented as ghosts, monsters, minotaurs, or dragons), then goes on through stages of enlightenment. Once the hero retrieves the boon, he must return it to the normal world from which he came. This third act is called the Return. During this final section of the narrative, the hero must release the power of the boon into society in order to restore it. Many times this last act requires the hero to overcome his major flaw and make a sacrifice. Once restored, the hero and those citizens in the world are free once again to live in it. The story of Odysseus follows this format very close. Particularly, if we combine the events from the Iliad and the Odyssey we obtain a full picture of Odysseus' journey of kingship. When you buy this book you'll learn the definition and history of the Monomyth; the three-act structure of the Hero's Journey; and the key plot points of the Iliad and Odyssey.

Not to mention, we'll analyze the classic stages of Odysseus journey and their meaning.
