Author Pat Edwards conducts workshops and talks on how you, too, can explore the magic of your own Hero’s Journey. You can go on a Hero’s Journey on purpose. You don’t have to wait for Fate!
You can achieve audacious goals or turn your life around just by seeing your life through the lens of the stages of the classic Hero’s Journey.
Movies and stories have led you to believe that only big, strong, white men go on the Hero’s Journey. Not true! The Hero’s Journey can be made by anyone — women, children, and even men.
The On-purpose Hero’s Journey Topics Include:
You can’t go on a Hero’s Journey – You’re a Girl – All the movies and books have made you think you aren’t “enough” to go on the Hero’s Journey. Horse pucky!
Hanging out in the regular world – Where on the journey are you now? Are you asleep under a picnic table at a rest stop? Or climbing up the mountain?
The Call to adventure – You hear it; I know you hear it. It may be a quiet whisper or a banging gong or a high-def billboard on the side of the road.
Refuse the call – This one is so seductive: I’m not good enough, man enough, well dressed enough. I’m too busy. Let voice mail pick it up. I put my number on that do-not-call list. I swear I never heard anything!
Mentors and Allies – You cannot do this alone. You cannot even do this by just reading this. You must have a mentor. Your mentor/teacher is right there. Maybe you need to turn around to see her/him. You will likely have more than one mentor on the journey. You are necessary to them as they are to you on this journey.
Your Life Doesn’t Suck – You’re in the Tests and Trials Stage – Really? Another test?? There will be a few – or maybe more than a few as you build up your physical, emotional, and spiritual muscles.
Why am I not Getting There – Change Your Approach – Where you see the grail, the mountains in the distance, and you’re so close…and the way you’re used to doing things isn’t working. How can I change my approach?
Return to the village with the magic – sharing what you learned. Start all over again. Become a mentor.

One thought on “Talks and Workshops”
Pat, I love how you describe the stages Hero’s Journey in this understandable way. It’s very inviting and encouraging even to read this short overview!
