“Dream is the personalized myth, myth the depersonalized dream” – Joseph Campbell – anonymous student
A Word about the Hero’s Journey: In his book, The Power of Myth, Joseph Campbell stated, “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive…”
In responding to the inner call to find That which makes us come alive, we embark on the Hero’s Journey – a life journey through archetypal adventures, obstacles and triumphs. As a vehicle for what Carl Jung referred to as “the last frontier” – the exploration of the inner self – The Hero’s Journey is a perfect metaphor for the Jungian concept of “individuation” the state of wholeness wherein our Inner Self finds authentic expression in our outer experience.. The term can also be applied to the numerous shorter "journeys" we take throughout our lives through which we effect changes in ourselves and our world.
Respond to the Call of your unique Hero’s Journey! This 6-week course is an experiential immersion into each participant’s archetypal journey. Navigate your journey’s stages and archetypes – both helpful and challenging – through the intuitive guidance of your dreams.
A Word about Dreamwork: From enhancing creative problem solving to providing inner guidance and wisdom, dreamwork is a powerful vehicle for personal growth.
In this 6-week course: we will trace the stages of our own Hero’s Journey as revealed in our individual dreams. What call are we responding to? Which of the seven stages of the journey are we presently experiencing? Which of the Hero’s Journey archetypes are we embodying: Innocent, Orphan, Warrior, Wanderer, Martyr or Magician? And who are the archetypal figures we are encountering – mentor, threshold guardian, ally, enemy, shadow, trickster and more – as depicted in the dream?
“Every aspect of the class was absolutely intriguing. Learning from not only my own dreams, but also from the dreams of others really opened my eyes…Great class!” – anonymous student
