Who we are at our core has been hidden over the years by social expectations and conditioning. So much so that we do not recognize who we are as individuals. So our perspective of what we want is skewed to accommodate others. That is why we need to discover who we really are before we decide what it is we really want. This will also be an opportunity to join the Heroine’s Journey Women’s Support Group
This is the first part of a series of workshops on the Heroines Journey Within using Expressive Art, story, and journaling . To start a successful Journey you must gather your personal strengths, values, talents, and dreams. They are your compass and lantern that will direct you and light your way to a more authentic life. The Heroines Journey Within is a map for women who are on a quest to go within to discover the essence of who they are and what they truly want their life to look like. Some of the tools we will be using along the Journey are story, visualization, reflective writing, and different forms of expressive art as we journey from the conditional life we are living now into a life that is more authentically us.
What is a Heroine’s Journey?
In general, the difference between a hero’s journey and a heroine’s journey is that one is a journey outside of oneself and the other is a journey within the self. In the Hero’s Journey, the hero is focused on strengthening his skills to do something that needs to be done out in the world. To bravely conquer his fears and save his world. It is an external quest.
In the Heroine’s Journey, the heroine is looking for self-knowledge and fulfillment. She wants to find her gifts and live a life in harmony with her true nature. She is journeying within to discover that part of herself that she has not been able to express.
