What is your Story?

What is your Story?

Rome  8 – 10 April

“The hero’s quest is about saying ‘yes’ to yourself and in so doing, becoming more fully alive and more effective in the world…The quest is replete with dangers and pitfalls, but it offers great rewards: the capacity to be successful in the world, knowledge of the mysteries of the human soul, and the opportunity to find and express your unique gifts in the world”.

In this bold and original journey , Peter de Kuster shows that the hero’s  quest isn’t just for certain people under special circumstances. Exploring the many heroic paths available to each of us, at every point in our lives, his innovative program enables us to live heroically by activating and applying twelve archetypes in our lives.


‘These archetypes are inner guides that can help us:’

• prepare for the journey, by learning how to become successful members of society
• embark upon the quest, by becoming initiated into the mysteries of the human soul; and
• return to transform our lives as a result of claiming our uniqueness and personal power

Designed for creative individuals seeking to realise their full potential and professionals engaged in empowering others, Peter shows how journeys differ by the age, gender, and cultural background of the seeker, and how archetypes help awaken the capacities of our psyches. A unique diagnostic test, the Hero’ s Journey Index, and exercises are included to help us understand and awaken our inner guides.

Join us for a truly transformational vacation for the mind.

Become a great Storyteller

That’s why I set up The Hero’s Journey in the great cities of the world.  A new way to use the power of your story.  To guide you to life-changing, eye-opening movies, art, literature that truly have the power to enchant, enrich and inspire.

In this journey with Peter de Kuster you’ll explore your relationship with stories so far and your unique story identity will be sketched. You will be guided to movies, art, literature, myths that can put their finger on what you want to rewrite in your story, the feelings that you may often have had but perhaps never understood so clearly before; movies that open new perspectives and re-enchant the world for you.

You will be asked to complete a questionnaire in advance of your session and you’ll be given an instant story advice and movies to see to take away. Your full story advice and movies to see list will follow within a couple of days.
