This textbook really helped me to embrace the different stages in life and showed me how to grow into who I want to be. I was extremely pleased with its content, and found that I had experienced all of the archetypal stages in my life in some form or another. Most people will find themselves a better person having read this textbook. I would highly recommend this textbook to everyone.

The Hero Within: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.



In 'The Hero with a Thousand Faces', Joseph Campbell introduced readers to the significance of myth and archetype in understanding who we are and how we live our lives. Carol Pearson's best-selling 'The Hero Within' combines liter.

This book is an excellent introduction to Jungian thought. It is excellent for anyone who feels "stuck" in life. It is wonderful for people who want to understand themselves and others more deeply, especially with regard to developing higher possibilities. It is a book which helps you discover, and encourages you to pursue, what is most admirable within you.
