This is not the story of a common hero or an ordinary heroine, this is our story!

What if we were the hero of our own adventure?

In The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell illustrates the seventeen stages of the hero’s journey, a trace hidden in the weave of history and always present: the hero, the heroine and their stories change, but the moments that mark the rhythm of their journey remain unchanged.

If it is true that life is an adventure and we are the protagonist of our story then what does our hero’s journey look like?

Here I am retracing these seventeen stages by reflecting on our daily lives. A light reflection to pique our curiosity and awaken in us an interest in delving deeper to better see what is hidden in our personal lives.
