As we conclude our series on myths and symbols, we examine the various hero tales and how death and rebirth are symbols of transformation. We consider what we can learn about these symbols as we undergo our own transformational life. In this episode we explore:

  • The myths of rebirth through heroes such as Kaleesi & Jon Snow in the Game of Thrones, Jonah & the Whale in the bible, Batman, Dante’s descent into the underworld, Faust
  • Why we resist the hero’s journey and stay stuck;
  • Why the ego has to die in order for us to become our true self;
  • The Dark Night of the Soul as a beginning of something new.

We’re all on a hero or heroine’s journey in our life, whether we like it or not.
