January 15: Receiving the Call, Departure~
Learning to recognize when a call is arriving. Understanding different kinds of calls, where they come from, and the ways we respond?
January 22: Initiation and the Road of Trials and Adventures
We begin with a review and finish the Departure discussion~ accepting help and resources. Exploring the broad array of threshold possibilities, both external and inner, along with the complexity of the belly of the whale.
The Road of Trials contains archetypes such as the monster, shapeshifter, meeting the goddess, tests, and the descent into darkness. How is that different from the Belly of the Whale? Why do we meet with the goddess and find atonement (At One With) the Father figure? Who are our shapeshifters and how do we handle them?
January 29: The Return and our Role in the World
Refusal, Magic Escape, or Rescue
Crossing the Return Threshold
Gift to the World
Rejection or Acceptance of the Hero’s Gifts
Master of Two Worlds, the Hero Integralist

WEEKEND Retreat and Course:
January 31 ~ February 1, 2015
Every few years yet another film arrives telling the same story~ Star Wars, The Matrix, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games. Why does this storyline continue to fascinate us and attain blockbuster status?
The research of mythologian Joseph Campbell offers a powerful answer. The adventures and archetypes of the hero’s journey resonate deeply with our human experience, especially in our search for meaning and purpose.
Using Campbell’s inspiration, we may also apply aspects of the Hero’s Journey to our own lives. We may gain a richer appreciation for the timeless beauty of these stories and an eye for variations yet to come.
Join us for a lively and engaging discussion.
