This workshop will help participants understand how the use of myth engages individuals in shaping their own lives and “dialogue” with their “vocātiō,” or their calling. Participants will come to imagine how – by incorporating the common themes of myth and the character traits of the hero – they will become the hero or heroine within their own stories, analyzing a myth while the myth analyzes them.
"Your stories and personal experiences truly touched my students in many spiritual ways. I too was touched by your words and your message. You have a very special gift and when surrounded by it, we were transformed and enlightened. My students have written many notes of praise to you and I would like to forward them on so that you will know how you have empowered them with thought and an open mind."
