Today on the Placebo Magick Podcast we give a bird's eye view of the archetypal Hero's Journey (as described by Joseph Campbell) and its usefulness in spiritual practice. The Spell of the Week is a simple divination method based on the Hero's Journey.

  1. A character is in a zone of comfort,
  2. But they want something.
  3. They enter an unfamiliar situation,
  4. Adapt to it,
  5. Get what they wanted,
  6. Pay a heavy price for it,
  7. Then return to their familiar situation,
  8. Having changed.

The Placebo Magick Podcast explores theatrical spiritual practice for atheists. Remember: Magick is a metaphor, and metaphor is magickal!
