Exploring the Magic of Your Hero's Journey

Exploring the Magic of Your Hero's Journey coverYou can decide to go on a Hero's Journey on purpose. Right now. Right here. It takes only a decision.
You think you're not good enough? Not strong enough? Not smart enough? Not whatever-enough? Great. It makes you normal and ordinary and perfect for a Hero's Journey.

Reframe your goals and dreams as a Hero's Journey, and it will change how you see your goals and how you accomplish them. Explore the magic of your Hero's Journey and you will change how you see yourself.

Author Pat Edwards shows how to tap into the universal structure of Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey to transform how you achieve “your bliss.” She shows how setting out on your own Hero's Journey opens a window directly into the consciousness and aligns your purpose with its benevolent purpose.

Ms. Edwards uses myths and the stories of dozens of ordinary people on their own Hero's Journey as well as her own Hero's Journey as a shaman to illustrate how to complete the Hero's Journey stages.

Explore the Magic of Your Hero's Journey. Everything will shift.

Author: Pat Edwards, Vietnam-era Army Veteran, IT Project Manager, Published Poet and Shaman

It is a book about seeing the stories we tell ourselves for what they are – STORIES – and about giving our imaginations the space and permission they need to reframe those stories in ways that can soften the hard edges that bruise our journey through life. In writing this book, Gail McConnon stepped outside her nonfiction comfort zone to discover the story teller who had been waiting all along for the call to come out and play. And life has not been the same since.

Stories from the Cosmic Grill is available in paperback and Kindle formats on amazon.com, and on Gail's web site at www.gailmcconnon.com.

Author: Gail McConnon, author and explorer of the stories we tell ourselves

Beyond that, Gail is a lover of all things tailed and caffeinated — particularly dogs, cats, coffee, and chocolate — and many things that are not. You can find her online at gailmcconnon.com.
