Hero's Journey® Workshop Themes and Topics

"Where you stumble, there lies your treasure. The very cave you are afraid to enter turns out to be 

the source of what you are looking for." Joseph Campbell

Myths and stories can help articulate, comprehend and give meaning to one's life. Similar to Narrative Therapy, you are invited to examine your life story and consider a new narrative: The Hero's JourneyWhether you are searching to answer questions in your life, (intentional calls to journey), are called to deal with serendipitous events or are facing challenging life circumstances, the Hero's Journey narrative can give you an affirming and empowering framework to guide you along the way. Regardless of the call, the stages of the journey remain the same. Workshops are intentionally designed to awaken the Inner Hero and support your transformational process.

questions that have patiently waited for you

questions that have no right to go away."

More about Hero's Journey® Workshops

Workshops use  intentional self-reflection questions, film clips, poetry and art, to guide participants  through the stages of their Hero's Journey as adapted from the work of Joseph Campbell. As we venture through the stages, participants share their experiences of their journeys, the challenges faced, and how their Inner Hero has been brought fought to deal with them. Ultimately the journey calls upon the individual to befriend their dragons and realize the new self that has emerged! The journey has been a transformational venture, supported and helped by mentors and allies!
