Episode 27: Freemasonry and The Hero's Journey
Freemasonry, through its ritual of Initiation and progressive Degrees, is a system that elevates the Human into the Hero. It does this by conducting the Neophyte through the various archetypes of their consciousness through symbol and story. The Hero''s Journey, popularized by Joseph Campbell''s Hero with a Thousand Faces is a psychological system that describes cycles of all world mythology and storytelling and addresses the processes by which individuals grow and evolve. Does The Hero''s Journey mirror the techniques and traditions of Freemasonry in explaining human evolution?
Legends of the Craft explores Science, Religion and Philosophy in search of the hidden wisdom of Nature. From historical tales of heroism and courage to great works of literature, no legend will go unexamined by Brothers Matias Cumsille and Aksel Suvari in their quest for Masonic inspiration. For too long the philosophy of the Craft has grown stagnant and stale. By resurrecting the ancient legends of our past and studying the masterpieces of the modern age we can determine the future course of Masonry as it endeavors to accomplish the Great Work!
