"I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.” – Joseph Campbell
I have always been DEEPLY inspired by the Great Sages and Awakened Beings that have walked the well trodden paths of Glory and Greatness, leaving their footprints in the sands of time. GREAT SAGES… Such as the Buddha, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and the more contemporary visionaries and pioneers of our Evolving age such as Marianne Williamson, Louise L Hay, Dr Wayne Dyer, Cheryl Richardson, Deepak Chopra and John F Demartini …to name but a few. None of their paths have been easy, all have risen from great challenge and adversity, struggle and hardship, to be the great BEACONS of LOVE, LIGHT AND HOPE that they are today, leaving their mark on the world and their imprints in our hearts and our COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS.
If you have ever faced deep challenges, struggles and nearly lost hope, wondering how you had the courage to continue to endure, yet seek to rise to be even stronger, more powerful and a Bright Light for the World …then this is the Yoga intensive for YOU!!! See it as a “SOUL CALLING”.
On my personal hero’s journey, there have been TWO GREAT GIFTS – yoga and transpersonal counselling – and I love nothing more than to merge the two together to create multidimensional healing spaces for us to honour our unique journey/story, discover our dharma and share our gifts with the world!
The Hero’s Journey is a pattern of narrative identified by the American scholar Joseph Campbell that appears in storytelling, myth, drama, ritual, and psychological development. It describes the typical adventure of the archetype known as The Hero or Heroine, the person who goes out and achieves great deeds on behalf of the tribe, group or civilization. We all go through many hero’s journeys throughout the course of our life. I have been thoroughly blessed to have been taught and illuminated by some extraordinary mentors in my life and this is a testimony and honoring to all of them and how they have affected my life. Some of my greatest teachers have been my greatest struggles and downfalls.
During this early morning intensive we will be combining classical yogic practices with the transpersonal work of Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey. This comes not from intellect but through embodied experience. Come share in this exploration as we marry it with our very own Hero/Heroine's journey.
“He came by a leap to the Goal of Purpose, not by the toilsome steps of reason. On the instant his headlong Spirit declared his Purpose: this was the one Being for him in all the world: at this altar he would Light a Lamp of Devotion, and keep it burning forever” Gilbert Parker
