Celebrating the Work of Joseph Campbell


Between the Summer of our Discontent and The Fall: Babel and Babble.

by Mark C.E. Peterson

September smuggles us across the Equinox, the border between Summer and The Fall. That phrase, The Fall, does a lot of work when you’re talking about a blasted Tower. And it’s important to consider that borders, all borders, are overseen by the God of War, Mars.  Where there’s a border, there’s a Tower. Sometimes the crossing is easy, sometimes it’s a mess.  Sometimes Border Patrol and Customs won’t let you bring your baggage across, and you have to leave everything behind. Any attempt to storm the gate can mean ruin.  This can be as true metaphorically as it is literally. …

In this bonus episode, Mystical Experience & The Hero Q&A, Joseph Campbell answers questions following the lecture that he gave with the same name from EP 25. The questions deal with the contrast of mystical experience in the east and west. Question topics include: the meaning and definition of samadhi, how an eastern mystic compares to the western mystic, how a mystic in the western world acts in relation to institutions, the meaning of atonement. It ends with Campbell giving a short introduction to the Hero's Adventure. It was recorded in 1967 at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California.
