Know Your Story in One Day

Know Your Story in One Day

One of the most striking features of the story we tell ourselves about ourselves and our creative work is how little we understand them. At The Hero’s Journey, we believe this lack of knowledge or our own story is very often what stands between us and greater fulfillment – a relationship that will bring us joy, a job that motivates us each morning, or a wiser approach to those situations where we seem to keep making the same familiar, frustrating errors.

Know Your Story in a Day will draw on our Core Curriculum, focusing on the exploration of the story we tell ourselves about ourselves. The teaching methods aren’t entirely standard – our storytellers invite almost continuous interaction, encouraging participants to actively engage in self-reflection and share their stories with others. As always at our events, we aim to establish an atmosphere where all feel welcome to contribute and question, safe in the knowledge that our courage will be met with warmth, open-mindedness, and good humour.

Our seminar on ‘Know Your Story in One Day’ is for anyone who wishes to explore – as part of a curious, like-minded community – what truly interests, motivates and excites them, as well as what lies behind some of their most important fears, anxieties, and sorrows.

Here is a selection of what will be on offer on the day:

Keynotes session with Peter de Kuster, founder of The Hero’s Journey
The Hero’s Journey questionnaire  – our storytellers will prompt honest, daring answers to important questions about our own feelings of passion, joy, hope and fear What Legend are You Living? – a space for your most elusive thoughts as they develop throughout the day
Lecture, films, music, literature, art, storytelling exercises and conversation
Refreshments throughout the day
An opportunity to make new friends in a community of like-minded individuals
