Hero’s Journey, Inner Alchemy at Hollyhock
October 25, 2015 - October 30, 2015
For most of us, the ego is locked in a life-and-death struggle with the shadow. We’re continually pulled back and forth between the excitement of exploration on one hand, and the fear of abandonment and rejection on the other. The Hero/ine undertakes the courageous journey to assimilate ego and shadow, tapping into inner, previously unknown gifts to triumph over lifelong challenges in the guise of opponents. The results blossom as the harmonious union of light and dark that characterizes a truly healthy, integrated human being. Exquisitely humbled by the process, we offer all that we have learned to benefit all beings in our lives. This program features teachings, exercises and guided meditations to shepherd us through the fearless, meditative and experiential path of the hero’s journey.
