The 6-Week Hero's Journey Course

Transformational journey, for life.

for ages 11 +

The 6-Week Hero’s Journey is a course grounded in self development combined with reflective fiction writing. Each participant should be efficient in the English language and have a love for creative writing. 

During our 6 week course, participants will explore  topics such as treasure, love, reward, approval, honor, status, freedom and survival, and find meaning in the Hero’s Journey as a way to look into  our own lives for inspiration (and recognition).

Together, we’ll reflect on  symbolism and metaphor as the Hero’s Journey follows the twelve distinctive steps as defined through  Joseph Campbell’s work.

Every week we’ll make our way through  a new stage (or three) of the Hero’s Journey. During our class discussion we’ll explore the nuances and reflect on our own lives to uncover our personal Hero’s Journey.   After each class, every participant will have a writing challenge for that week. 

Af the end of the 6 weeks, every participant will have written their own aspirational work of fiction (based on their own personal truth) describing their own Hero’s Journey

This course is designed to be a powerful process combining creativity, writing, self reflection, discovery and empowerment. 

The Hero’s Journey course consists of six weekly 1.5 hour meetings, mid-week check ins through our Discord server,  and access to peer mentoring throughout. Also, each participant will  receive feedback on their final story and will be published on our blog with full author credit. 

Course is designed for young people ages 11+ years old

Course Starts in June, 2021

Are you ready for change?

Parents, should book a consultation with Lainie to make sure it's a match. Teens can fill out the application below.

How Do I Get Started?

Talk to your teen.  Show them this web site.  Show them the program outline.  Ask them to consider their life now and if this is something they see as beneficial. Then ask,  if they wish to participate. The only way this program works is if the teen wants to be a part of the partnership process and is interested in taking action for themselves.  If the teen says yes, parents should book a consultation first. Then the teen should fill out the course application on their own.
