from an old exhibit.

I've been thinking about ideas behind the heroic journey and remembered how the star wars exhibit at the air and space museum was set up.

the steps of the heroic journey as per the exhibit were:

1. the call to adventure
2 the wise and helpful guide
3 the threshold
4. into the labyrinth
5. hero deeds
6. the dark road of trials
7. the belly of the beast
8. the sacred grove
9. sacrifices
10 the path to atonement
11 the heros return
12 the shadow rises
13 the enchanted forest
14 the heart of darkness
15 the final victory
16 journeys end.

whats important to note is that George Lucas consulted with Joseph Campbell about the Heroic Journey, and mythology. Among my many inspirations in life, the works of Joseph Campbell rank highly.
