The Hero’s Journey


When we set out on a journey, it is useful to have a map so that we can plan our route, have an idea of anything that may delay us or hinder our progress, and know what supplies we need to see us through to the end. The journey of life is no different – sometimes it is useful to have a map, if for no other reason than to know that we are on track.

The Hero’s Journey, based on universal myths and archetypes, can provide a useful blueprint for our own lives. It can act as a map for our development and growth as well as a resource for overcoming barriers. Whatever stage we find ourselves at, understanding the process of the journey can give us valuable insights into our own psyche and those with whom we come into contact.

The Hero’s Journey is a universal blueprint for learning and change – it is OUR story. You will discover the work of Joseph Campbell and the key stages of the journey as well as how it can be used as a model for personal mastery and to coach or facilitate change in others.

We will explore how NLP tools and techniques can be used within the Hero’s Journey framework to create real and lasting change. Pre-framing the change (planning ahead), understanding why sometimes there is reluctance, identifying required resources, developing motivation and commitment to “cross the threshold to adventure”, anticipating challenges and celebrating success.

You will leave fully prepared and looking forward to the next stage of your own hero’s journey and clear about how to use the model to guide others on their journeys.

You will learn…

  • The key stages of the Hero’s Journey
  • How to apply the journey metaphor to yourself and in 1:1 work with clients as a coaching framework
  • How NLP tools and change techniques can be applied within the framework.

This two-day workshop is a must for all working as a Professional Coach, NLP Practitioner HR and Trainer professionals or any other client-focused practice.
