Heroic Presence: The New Hero’s Journey and the Enneagram

The Hero’s Journey summons images of knights slaying dragons and perilous journeys to distant lands. These are the metaphors so often associated with our work and our relationships, but what if these metaphors are failing us? Is the departure on this journey and its solitary nature contributing to our new epidemics of loneliness and burnout? What if there was a new way of viewing both our work and our worth?

This program will introduce a new metaphorical framework for life called Heroic Presence. We will also show how this radical 3 step process ties directly into our personality construct or Enneagram type.

In this interactive workshop you will learn:
  • Why the popular understanding of departure in the hero’s journey is harmful to community and relationships
  • An inclusive metaphor that transcends gender, race and sexuality
  • How some narratives assume others must lose for us to succeed
  • New ways of viewing your worth independent of works
  • How to move from a solitary narrative to a rich constellation of dynamic stories
See how these ancient vehicles for understanding our inner and outer worlds can work together to build a more connected and meaningful future.
