The map of the Hero’s Journey is the one central, shared story of a human lifetime. It contains central archetypes or deep symbols that give meaning to experience. For instance, a warrior represents courage, strength, and a shifting or keeping of order. The warrior’s sword can also stand for those things, along with the transmission of a lineage.
This paradigm can help us frame the underlying psychology and spiritual wisdom of the pandemic.
There are a few possibilities to help hold the pandemic: initiation, the belly of the whale, descent into darkness, time out, thresholds, and threshold guardians. What’s interesting is that the pandemic seems to include and transcend these archetypes, giving it an Integral spin.
