Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is, by far, the best synthesis of The Hero's Journey, i.e. the individuation journey, I have ever read. The author has a kind of pure god-given genius for being able to take all this enormous material, from Jung, to Nietsche, to Star Wars, to myth in general, to Joseph Campbell, to Eastern and Western approaches, to dreams, to the Goddess, and somehow weave it into a beautiful narrative that does not veer off into abstraction or mire one in a tar pit of academic jargon. It is at once accessible and yet, very deep. He also manages to include parts of his own journey without it becoming tediously autobiographical.

Even for those of us who know this material well, Le Grice manages to remind us in a new way of the depth, breadth and importance of the journey, both personally and collectively. In that sense, it is truly enlightening. And perhaps most importantly of all, it brings hope without sacrificing truth. Hope for us individually, and hope for humanity.

As a woman, the book holds a particular and special significance. This is the first time I've felt comfortable stepping up and claiming The Hero Myth for myself. Although privately I always felt a certain kinship and understanding, I was never comfortable claiming it for myself before because of the gendered language around it. That discomfort fell away for me largely because of the author's unique ability to acknowledge and then move beyond the gender stereotypes and open wide the door. He consistently reminds the reader that this is the individuation journey, for men and women alike. He doesn't patronize, either with content or with language.

Format: Paperback
Having read Keiron's two previous books, the first thing I can say is that this one is as valuable as "The archetypal cosmos" and "Eris".

Keiron weaves together an amazing amount of knowledge - C. G Jung, Nietzsche, Campbell, Tarnas, and many others - and his own amazing insight, to present us with a view of our collective human adventure, on the one hand, and tools to progress on our own personal spiritual path, that is truly highly inspiring.

MEANING : that's what this book will bring you, first. A unique understanding of things.

And much more : "hope", for instance, because in spite of the difficult times we are going through as a species, KLG shows where all of this might be leading to.

We seriously NEED that kind of overview, that kind of understanding of our predicament, to be able to go on with our lives in a meaningful way.

So, thanks Keiron, for this new book of yours !

Well organized, clearly written, did not assume prior knowledge, and connected myth and our world today. I am using it as a text in my group sessions and lectures.
