How exciting!! Someone has posted the Power of Myth Series on video on line.

If you click on the images you can watch the wonderful interviews with Joseph Campbell in the last years of his life.

I am watching the Heroes Journey now.

Here is the link Angelina...

Hi Carol,

Thank you for the link, I've added it to the post.

I bought the audio of that book, and have been listening to it as I drive, my son, Andrew to his lessons. It is has even caught Andrew's attention, specifically the references to Star Wars. Never mind that some of the interview was taped at George Lucas's house in LA.

Great stuff!
