Joseph Campbell and the Mythos Journey
After spending his lifetime studying the myths, wisdom traditions, stories, cultures, art forms and depth-seeking practices of humanity through the world, Joseph Campbell came to the conclusion that, ?There is one mythology.?
The One Mystery
Professor Campbell understood that the first and primary function of the one myth, in all of its countless manifestations, was and is to connect us individually and collectively with the One Mystery that cannot be expressed in words of thoughts and is beyond human concepts of time and space. It is this encounter with the Mystery of Ultimate Reality that is the transformative element in human experience. It is this ?encounter? that is the experience and the practice of ?contemplation.?
