Each one of us is on a journey of self-transformation which could culminate in the ascension of the soul. In many ways, this path of transformation mirrors the Hero’s Journey, as described by Joseph Campbell. William Henry delineates the twelve phases of the Hero’s Journey which he uses to explain the Hymn of the Pearl, a Gnostic text which depicts the descent of Thomas into the earthly realms and the ordeals which lead to his ascent back into the heavenly realms.
