The Heros Journey - creating the BEST you.
Sun. 4 December 2016, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm AEDT
Due to popular demand Hypnotherapy HQ is proud to present The Heros Journey one more time.
Join Joe Busuttil and Deirdre Byrne on this SPECIAL event.
The purpose of this workshop is to explore the power of myth, especially in the hero's journey, as it provides patterns and themes embedded in the human experience of personal and societal transformation. Each of us has a past that may keep us stuck. The workshop takes each participant down a pathway of finding the Hero within. The hero that can accomplish anything.
The course will follow the traditional hero’s journey cycle of receiving a call, responding to that call, facing of inherent challenges and obstacles, meeting and accepting supportive allies, finding the 'treasure', and returning to share recovered or discovered gifts with the larger community. It also will provide and facilitate opportunities for participants to explore these themes and patterns in their own lives and how to manifest abundance.
In that context, the myth of the hero’s journey reveals the overall structure of the cyclical adventure that calls each person (hero) to recover what was lost or discover what is life-giving, and in the process, experience and contribute to something more/bigger than her/his original self. Campbell wrote that the ‘basic motif of the universal hero’s journey’ is ‘leaving one condition and finding the source of life to bring you forth into a richer or mature condition.’ It requires a journey inside oneself spiritually and psychologically and then the discovery of how to share any newly-acquired gifts with the world. At this point in history, it also calls for evolving old stories based on new insights and understandings, which are emerging daily about ourselves and our world.
The workshop explores the Heros Journey via practical experiences, written reflection and analysis, dialogue, and creative expression, participants will be learn to help themselves develop self-awareness, social awareness, written and verbal communication skills, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, and confidence in their ability to create a positive future for themselves.
