Call to Adventure
National Taiwan Normal University
Taipei, Taiwan

The first stage of the mythological journey--which we have designated 'the call to adventure'--signifies that destiny has summoned the hero and transferred his spiritual center of gravity from within the pale of his society to a zone unknown.... it is always a place of strangely fluid and polymorphous beings, unimaginable torments, superhuman deeds, and impossible delight.

Joseph Campbell
The Hero with a Thousand Faces
