Here is an excerpt from Bill Moyer’s interview with Joseph Campbell. In it he begins to detail the first several steps of the Hero’s Journey, explaining that the Hero’s Journey begins with not only the crossing of a threshold from the “normal” world into a world in which the hero must accomplish some kind of extraordinary feat.

He goes on to describe how the spiritual journey that the hero must undertake can provide a template for the way in which we live our daily lives. His suggestion is that even if we aren’t literally in the process of slaying a dragon that we are constantly involved in the process of conquering our lower nature.
