Your Journey

We've all questioned who we are, what we're doing in life, and where we're going. 

The philosopher Joseph Campbell said self-transformation is our greatest challenge as human beings. “The Hero’s Journey” was his way of explaining our path in life, our path to transformation.

The hero’s journey begins when something awakens us to the need for change—pain, discomfort, hardship. Campbell describes it as the “Call to Adventure.”

"Day 5 of meditation training done. Every day I want to keep going longer. I literally feel high for hours after each day. Feelings of relaxation, confidence and well-being seem to fill me more and more."
