Intent of Hero's Journey Workshops


Hero’s Journey Workshops offers the opportunity for individuals to:

❖ awaken the “hero” within
❖ reflect upon life experiences through the different stages of the Hero's Journey
❖ gain insights and heighten awareness leading to more life choices and self efficacy
❖ acquire new language and concepts about the journey that are affirming, empowering and humanizing
❖ share experiences and insights with fellow travelers allowing for new discoveries and support 
❖ acquire new and effective approaches (knowledge, skills and perspectives) in dealing with tests, foes and challenges
❖ build and sustain motivation and discipline
❖ identify mentors and allies who can provide inspiration, guidance and hope
❖ honor struggles as a vehicle to accessing the hero within and understand the role that acceptance, forgiveness and grief play on the journey

❖ identify and befriend one's dragons

❖ allow for the retelling of one’s life story
