The Departure, The Initiation, and The Return
What are the three stages of the hero's journey in order?
The Call to Adventure
The future hero is first given notice that his or her life is going to change.
The Refusal of the Call
The future hero often refuses to accept the call to adventure. The refusal may stem from a sense of duty, an obligation, a fear, or insecurity.
The Beginning of Adventure
The hero begins the adventure, leaving the known limits of his or her world to venture into an unknown and dangerous realm where the rules and limits are unknown.
The Road of Trials
a series of tests, tasks, or ordeals that the person must undergo to begin the transformation
The Experience with Unconditional Love
During the Road of Trials, the hero experiences support (physical and/or mental) from a friend, family member, mentor, etc.
The Ultimate Boon
Hero achieves the goal
of his/her quest.
The Refusal of the Return
When the goal of the adventure is accomplished, the hero may refuse to return with the boon or gift, either because the hero doubts the return will bring change, or because the hero prefers to stay in a better place rather than return to a normal life of pain and trouble.
The Magic Flight
The hero experiences adventure and perhaps danger as he or she returns to life as it was before the Call to Adventure.
The Rescue from Without
Just as the hero may need guides and assistance on the quest, oftentimes he or she must have powerful guides and rescuers to bring him or her back to everyday life. Sometimes the hero does not realize that it is time to return, that he or she can return, or that others are relying on him or her to return.
The Crossing or Return of the Threshold
At this final point in the adventure, the hero must retain the wisdom gained on the quest, integrate that wisdom into his or her previous life, and perhaps decide how to share the wisdom with the rest of the world.
