The hero's journey monomyth is at the core of stories worldwide among indigenous peoples, the ancients, and our modern society. We explore the deeper roots of the monomyth by looking at how hunter-gatherers viewed themselves within the natural and spiritual worlds through Paleolithic cave art from 40,000 years ago. With these insights, we deeply understand the history of western consciousness, from ancient Egyptian monuments to Greco-Roman mysticism, from Sahara nomads to many of the great mythic thinkers in the last century. It’s a journey of astrotheology, innovative archeology, and Jungian/Campbellian Gnosis into the heart of reality and what it means to be human.
