You are on the journey of a lifetime. You are asked to “show up” for the adventure. How do you do it? What experience do you have? Where can you get guidance and insight?
In this initial launch, during five (5) sessions, we will explore the myth’s and archetypes of the timeless “Hero’s Journey”, from Joseph Campbell, CG Jung, Carol Pearson, and Robert Moore. We will go deep, looking at both conscious, sub-conscious and unconscious drives. We will look at awareness, change and reflect upon the energies of light, dark, weak and powerful to strengthen our journey and reawaken our purpose.
A Man On The Hero’s Journey?
In this short program we will explore the Hero’s Journey and what it means to be a man on this journey called life.
Think of a protagonist from your favorite film, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, The Matrix. He or she was the hero and the film represented the hero’s journey. The hero archetype resides in the psyche of every individual, which is one of the primary reasons we love hearing and watching stories.
In five (5) sessions we will dive deep into the Hero’s Journey and the male archetypes of the King, Warrior, Magician and Lover. We will look at how the Hero’s Journey represents us all, as we receive the call for the adventure of a lifetime.

“SAY WHAT YOU MEAN – DON’T SAY IT MEAN”
The Good King is the source of order in the kingdom. If he is a wise and just king, the kingdom prospers; people eat well and are safe from harm. In the kingdom of the wise king, laughter rings through the lands, the crops shoot up high, joyful celebrations keep the woods awake, merchants travel with overﬂowing carts to lively markets. The king is the harmonizing principle, the subjugator of chaos, one who unites opposites. He is the channel through which the gods communicate, and he channels divine blessings to his people and the lands (to whom he is wed). He is

NINJA, SADIST OR MASOCHIST?
The warrior is a powerhouse of energy, the source of which is a transpersonal commitment. He is ﬁercely loyal to his warrior code – which is his honor – and to the king, who, in mythology, represents his purpose. The warrior is not concerned about his own comfort and security in pursuit of his goal, as his training teaches him to live with death as his constant companion. The domain of the Warrior is the battleﬁeld – be it a battleﬁeld of war, of spirituality, or of moral ethics. The Warrior’s purpose is often to destroy, but the mature warrior destroys only that which is negative and harmful to the world. He is a master tactician, knowing at all times his limitations, and ﬁnds creative ways around them. The warrior is not a thinker, he is
The Magician is the wise man, the sage, the knower of secrets. He sees and navigates the inner worlds, he understands the dynamics and energy ﬂows of the outer. He is a master of technology, engineering, mathematics, mysticism, and logic. He reads the stars, navigates the soul, and writes the laws. In the legends, he is the King’s close advisor, who stops the regent’s anger with cool rationality before he acts rashly and channels to him knowledge from hidden sources. The Magician is the thinker, and all knowledge that requires special training is his domain. The Magician has the capacity to detach from events – the chaos of the world – and draw on essential truths and resources deep within him. He thinks clearly in times of
PASSIONATE SENSITIVE, MYSTIC, ADDICTED
The lover is ﬁnely attuned to the realm of the senses and worships beauty. He is a musician, poet and artist, and a lover of all things, both inner and outer. He is passionate, and delights in touching and being touched. He wants to always stay connected, and does not recognize boundaries. He wants to experience the world as one ongoing big orgasm of hearts uniting as One. He is the mystic who feels everything as himself, and the source of all intuition. Through his feeling capacity, he is ﬁnely attuned to people’s energy, capable of reading them like an open book. His desire for love and connectedness considered, feeling into other people and discovering dark intentions is a painful experience for him. He is opposed to all structures that maintain separateness – of all law and order that keep hearts lonely and isolated. He is, in other words, opposed to all the other archetypes. The Lover is crucial in keeping the other archetypes energized, humane, and in touch with the ultimate purpose of love. The Lover keeps them from turning dark.
