Finding Your Way Forward
by Understanding Your Life Backward
October 15 ~ December 15, 2018
No experience in this world has ever been cathartic
without the willing participation of the individual.
Life does not automatically bestow wisdom or growth
upon anyone just for showing up. You have to work
ceaselessly on your end to digest and imbibe your opportunities
or, I have come to believe, they will gradually slip away and
knock on someone else’s more receptive door.
~ Elizabeth Gilbert
Doesn’t everyone struggle with questions, doubts, and longings? Who am I? What do I value? What am I passionate about? How can I become more of the person I am meant to be? Am I more than the roles I play? Am I living the life I’m meant to live?
The answer, without question, is YES!
The heroine first hears the call . . . to a new dream, desire, or passion. Something within her is awakened and she knows that it is time to realize a life-long calling, or sudden possibility, and she will need to journey both inward and outward in order to do so.
The archetypal heroine’s journey is a universal feminine path, a spiritual quest for adventure, transformation and self-discovery. It plays out in all of our lives, over and over again. When you really see and understand this, then it becomes possible to chart a less chaotic, less anxiety filled and more meaningful life for yourself.
If you’ve been sleepwalking through your life and now find yourself at a crossroads asking these questions and yearning for a new more vibrant life, then this program is perfect for you.
THROUGH THIS CLASS YOU WILL:
~ Learn to see The Heroine’s Journey as fundamental to creating a vital, meaningful life.
~ Understand that the essence of this journey is the process between awakening, discovery and living into your true self.
~ Read and do exercises that will center on understanding The Heroine’s Journey and how, by understanding it, you can transform your life.
~ Learn to “see” with new eyes.
~ Discover the tools needed to move powerfully back into your life with a deeper sense of joy and an enlivened sense of being.
THIS PROGRAM INCLUDES:
~ Eight-week distance learning experience, consisting of readings, exercises, experiences, daily practices, the opportunity to meet with other participants in on online forum and receive support and insights from your “study buddy” (whose name and contact information you’ll be given when you register).
~ Box you’ll receive which will contain all of the supplies you’ll need for the class (plus a fun gift for you).
~ Three tele-conference calls held on Mondays: October 15, October 29, November 12 at 6pm MT, which will provide additional guidance and an opportunity for the group to share insights and struggles, ask questions and bond as a group
