Explore the life and work of Joseph Campbell Joseph Campbell, arguably the greatest mythologist of the twentieth century, was certainly one of our greatest storytellers. This masterfully crafted book interweaves conversations between Campbell and some of the people he inspired, including poet Robert Bly, anthropologist Angeles Arrien, filmmaker David Kennard, Doors drummer John Densmore, psychiatric pioneer Stanislov Grof, Nobel laureate Roger Guillemen, and others. Campbell reflects on subjects ranging from the origins and functions of myth, the role of the artist, and the need for ritual to the ordeals of love and romance. With poetry and humor, Campbell recounts his own quest and conveys the excitement of his lifelong exploration of our mythic traditions, what he called “the one great story of mankind.”

Stephen Gilligan and Robert Dilts truly take you on a voyage of self-discovery. The Hero's Journey examines the questions: How can you live a meaningful life? What is the deepest life you are called to, and how can you respond to that call? It is about how to discover your calling and how to embark on the path of learning and transformation that will reconnect you with your spirit,change negative beliefs and habits, heal emotional wounds and physical symptoms, deepen intimacy, and improve self-image and self-love. Along this path we inevitably meet challenges and confronting these challenges forces us to develop and think in new ways and push us outside our comfort zone. The book takes the form of a transcript of a four day workshop conducted by Stephen and Robert. It is a powerful way of learning as you are so absorbed by the experiences of the participants that you feel you are actually there. A wonderful voyage of discovery for everyone who thinks that, "there must be more to life than this".

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.

U.S. foreign policy has undergone seven cycles of fluctuating political commitment to the moral principles at the heart of U.S. national identity. Under President Clinton, Salla asserts, the U.S. achieved a "grand synthesis" of power and morality, thereby making possible a more interventionist foreign policy in response to current global challenges.
