Reflections on the Art of Living: A Joseph Campbell Companion

What a discovery hearing about Joseph Campbell has been for me. Thank you Sally for setting me on this path.

The book is a collection of lectures Joseph Campbell gave at the famed Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California in 1984. Along with 10 students, Campbell discussed the insights from his long scholarly pursuits.

What wise words; “The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.” “Follow your bliss.”, Joseph Campbell. Reading a book like this is a revelation. We lost Professor Campbell in 1987, but, thankfully we still have his words.

This book was not on the library bookshelves, rather, it was in the stacks along with The Hero with a Thousand Faces. I have The Power of Myth on order at my local bookshop and l follow The Joseph Campbell Foundation. Yes, it has made big impression on me.

Read some Joseph Campbell yourself and see what it brings to life for you.
