My Personal Therapist: The Dream Series ... The Hero
The Hero is that driving spark within us to seek out adventure, test our boundaries, and embrace our psychic agency. Mythologist and scholar Joseph Campbell refers to this essential life process as The Hero's Journey.
The Dream Series explores nine common Jungian archetypes that often appear not only in our dream life but in our external circumstances as well. Building on material covered in the first seven courses, this class is devoted solely to The Hero, in both its conscious and unconscious expressions in our lives. We explore how to work constructively with our heroic impulse and to be on the alert for its dark/shadow side.
This installment in The Dream Series reveals examples of The Hero in art and culture. Additionally, the lesson concludes with a guided meditation/active imagination so that you might come into more meaningful dialogue with your inner hero/heroine.
