The Heroine’s Journey

Workshop:     A Mythic Exploration for Women on the Path to Self

Begins the evening of Tuesday December 5th– Thursday December 7th

Ace Hotel & Swim Club, Palm Springs, CA


Where are you in your journey to self-fulfillment?

You probably know something about the “Hero’s Journey,” Joseph Campbell’s brilliant revelation of a mythic pattern that still infuses our lives— or rather, men’s lives.

The Hero’s Journey is now ubiquitous, but it doesn’t really speak to the life experience of women.

Women and men do not travel the same path or face the same psychic tasks and life challenges. There is a Heroine’s Journey, and we will map it together, drawing on the words, ideas, and art of women, and the ancient myth of Eros and Psyche. Explore your journey to self-realization through:

  • Conversation and story work
  • Guided meditation and journaling
  • Art and ritual

Consider where you’ve been and what lies ahead, aided by a magical circle of women.
