Joseph Campbell, in _The Hero with a Thousand Faces_ dives deep into the great stories that have shaped our understanding of the world. They are the shared stories, the myths, that shape our cultures and our consciousnesses. He explored their commonality and introduces the Hero's Journey as a unifying monomyth:
>The book argues that hero stories such as Krishna, Buddha, Apollonius of Tyana, and Jesus all share a similar mythological basis. Not only did it introduce the concept of the hero's journey to popular thinking, but it also began to popularize the very idea of comparative mythology itself—the study of the human impulse to create stories and images that, though they are clothed in the motifs of a particular time and place, draw nonetheless on universal, eternal themes. > wikipedia
It is with this same intention we must explore the shared, common understanding of the human spirit over time and in different cultures, seeking out those "universal, eternal themes".
The journey starts by Exploring Spirit.
