Hero's Journey 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. From a focus on mental health and recovery to living from your true self, workshops are intentionally designed to awaken the Inner Hero and support your transformational process.

"Questions that can make or unmake a life

questions that have patiently waited for you

questions that have no right to go away."

David Whyte
