Take Harry Potter, Spider - Man, Kungfu Panda, and whoever you want to - they have something in common. What if I told you they are all the variants of same Hero. Do you believe that? Joseph Campbell did. He studied myths from all over the world and proposed Mankind's one greatest story called Monomyth. Why the same story has been told over and over again? To remind us some of the cosmic laws that always work and divert us from the fantasies of our luring conscious minds to achieve something impossible. Why do you need that? Life is a conflict, we all need some strength to face it. Our course gives you exactly that, we just give you enough push to wake up your psyche to follow your bliss.
