Josepth Campbell was a mythologist/anthropologist who studied the storytelling norms and rituals of indigenous people from countries around the globe. He was interested in analysing the patterns in those stories as he passionately believed that, regardless of where the stories originated from, however remote or isolated, they would have much in common.
One of the concepts stemming from his life’s work is the notion of the hero’s journey. We can trace this from ancient stories right the way through to today’s Disney blockbusters and it tells of an evryperson, an ordinary member of the common community who faces an exceptional challenge on behalf of that community, undergoes a series of trials, encountering all sorts of archetypal characters on the way, and eventually overcomes them in order to return with learning and wisodm.
The hero’s journey is at the core of the Changeling Saga. It is most evident in the first book, Legend of the Lost and builds through all three books.
As we all emerge from a global pandemic together, much as the Savage family emerge from the fog of a plague of dark magic, we must all realise that we are changed. We can never be the same. We have all given up the life we had and, with the benefit of fresh knowedge, a gift or curse, must now face the lives we were fated for.
How is this post pandemic life shaping up for you and your family? Well, you could do worse than embark upon your jurney in the company of a family of allies who are heroes too, but bring learnings and llies from all three realms!
