Hero’s journey – That sounds kind of childish. What do you think?

If it sounds childish, then it’s not so bad. Because a large part of the hero’s journey is about courageously confronting childhood wounds and one’s own naivety in order to grow up in a certain way.

The hero’s journey is really about having the courage to look at your own shadows and hurts and stop projecting your own issues onto the world and onto others and that is a real act of heroism.

Trungpa Rinpoche once called this “enlightenment warriors”. The warrior has a lot to do at the beginning of the hero’s journey because “I” have to…, I need the courage to look at my untidy things. And in order to do that, I need to be optimistic that something will come of it.

Who is the Hero’s Journey for?

For all those who are brave enough to look behind the façade and no longer want to pretend to themselves and others.
