The Hero's Journey and the 5 Rhythms by Robert Dilts and Deborah Bacon Dilts
The Hero's Journey is an archetypal path of individual transformation. It is a map that shows the stages of our personal process of evolution. These stages are revealed time and again in myths and legends in all cultures throughout the history of humanity. While the structure of these stages is universal, the expression is completely unique for each individual. At different times in our lives we are aware of a calling: a push or pull forward. This starts us on a path of learning and growth. Along this path we meet inevitable challenges. Confronting these challenges forces us to evolve in new ways and directions and brings us to a journey of self discovery. This journey involves crossing a threshold into a new territory outside of our comfort zones, finding the proper guardians (resources), and facing and transforming inner "demons" or "shadows".
The Hero's Journey examines the questions: How can you live a meaningful life? What is the deepest life you are called to, and how can you respond to that call? It is about how to discover your calling and how to embark on the path of learning and transformation that will reconnect you with your spirit, change negative beliefs and habits, heal emotional wounds and physical symptoms, deepen intimacy, and improve self-image and self-love. Along this path we inevitably meet challenges and confronting these challenges force us to develop and think in new ways and push us outside our comfort zone. This 3-day workshop is a wonderful voyage of self-discovery for everyone who wants to create more in their life.
This innovative and experiential program will bring together the Hero's Journey structure with concepts and tools from the latest thinking in NLP, mind-body connection and leading edge body based practises. Participants will work on areas of change and transition in their lives, using movement to awaken and instil needed resources so that they are there and available for use "in the muscle".

"The programme is perhaps the most direct representation for me
of what living life is about - and especially living a meaningful life."
