In 1984, Joseph Campbell and ten students participated in a month-long workshop at Esalen Institute where they explored the challenge of living in the world, the process of coming into awareness, and the art of living in the sacred. In A Joseph Campbell Companion, editor Diane Osbon has gathered these lectures by the inimitable mythologist together with other excerpts from his writings. Some of the most fascinating material in this volume revolves around Campbell's spiritual interpretation of marriage, money, old age, art, and wisdom.
