“Furthermore, we have not even to risk the adventure alone; for the heroes of all time have one before us, the labyrinth is fully known; we have only to follow the thread of the hero-path. And where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence; where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.”
— Joseph Campbell (The Hero with a Thousand Faces)
Once you have a grip on the career/outer orientation of the MC and the home/inner of the IC it is interesting to note their interconnectedness. Where you come from impacts where you’re going. Where you are in the outer world impacts your inner world. What impacts one, impacts the other. Your family of origin impacts your career and the home you make for yourself. Your home and career impact your children’s future home and career. It’s very much personal but also familial.
Does your MC/IC axis represent your familial archetypes?
