The Hero's Journey
This transformative workshop begins with participants mapping a life transition they are experiencing, or have previously experienced. Significant events before, during and after this transition are noted. Participants can be at any stage of the journey with the “after” situation imagined/visualised. Next, symbols, metaphors and images associated with the events are mapped onto the journey and then written as a myth with the participant as the central character (Hero). Finally, participants employ props to act out their journey and embody their transformation and wisdom.
