The Hero/Heroine's Journey

Our journey through life's challenges can be so much easier when we have a map!

Encoded within the great stories of humankind are patterns of growth and transformation which we can draw upon as incredible resources in our own life journeys. 60 years ago, Joseph Campbell published The Hero with a Thousand Faces which described the core pattern that is repeated in all the world’s great mythological stories across diverse cultures. The reason all these stories share the same pattern is because they describe a psychological process of growth and maturing which is embedded in our DNA, just as learning to walk or talk is in our DNA.

Ancient cultures understood the importance of these psychological growth processes and used story, ceremony and initiation rituals to help guide people through the various challenges and trials that life throws at them.

Nowadays we lack such guidance and tribal support and many people are left struggling to figure it out on their own. If only they knew that countless generations of people have faced their own versions of these challenges and left a map for us to follow – the distilled wisdom of the elders encoded into stories and myths.

The Hero/Heroine’s Journey is week long workshop where we de-code that ancient wisdom in a way that is useful to us today. As well as drawing on Joseph Cambell’s work, we also draw on Maureen Murdock’s The Heroine’s Journey.
