In our Conversations of a Higher Order, threaded discussion forums, over 25,700 messages have been posted! This week we feature A Woman’s Hero Journey: Is it different?, where JessicaP says: I would love to hear other people’s thoughts on whether you think the hero’s journey is different for women than it is for men. I’ve felt I can identify with the stages of the hero’s journey despite the fact that many of the heroes in our literature tend to be male. (Perhaps this is partially due to the fact that I do not have children.) However, if we look at myths with female heroes, do we find a different journey, different archetypes? Do we need to adjust the stages of the hero’s journey to fit the female life or do we just need to search for heroes (male or female) that we can relate to. What are your thoughts?
