How many New Worlds are entered into in the Hero's Journey / Monomyth?

Many New Worlds are entered into.
Remember, even the Ordinary World is a New World to someone entering it, say an Innocent archetype. Which means that the New World functions may have to be performed.
When you exit the Ordinary World, well that's a New World, as you're in a different space.
However, technically, there is one major New World, which is significant within the change and story structure. So for example, in Star Wars (1977), the New World for Luke starts when he enters Mos Eisley.
This is actually quite an involved question and best understood by reading the 2000+ stage Hero's Journey and Transformation through a New World/State, which you can purchase from http://www.clickok.co.uk/ClassicHero.html
