How will you be the Hero of your own journey? Modem Western culture has been stripped of archetypal connections: those universal pathways that act as life guides. Many of us have lost our way. This powerful book provides a process of twelve guided meditations by which each of us can establish our own destiny and move forward into a life lived fully and with conscious care for the world at large. Using Jungian psychology, shamanic healing techniques, and deep meditation, the reader learns to identify a personal hero's path by creating a mythology that resonates in today's world.
"We have a choice: we can devolve into an early version of humans, surviving by fighting over food, sex, and gods, or we can evolve into a species working in conjunction with the Universe under a global sensibility. We are currently perilously close to the former mode, warring against one another over basic survival ... All of us, men and women, have an opportunity to evolve and put these masculine, base tendencies to rest in favor of feminine nurturing modalities. This will be the Middle world struggle of our century: Evolve or die out.”
