transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching
your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition,
taking courageous challenges at every step along the way."

"You are on the path... exactly where you are meant to be right now... And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love." —Caroline Adams
Experiencing our lives as a heroic journey provides a positive context for the short-term struggles and lifelong challenges we face. By placing our subjective experiences into a story of personal unfolding heroism, we see how every experience stregthens our character, courage, resolve and resilience.
The stages of the heroic journey give us a template of hope that help us triumph over adversity and experience the happiness and fulfillment we seek. Wherever we are, whether that is in the workplace, with our families or in a social setting, this is our "heroic training ground" to test how evolved we really are. The tests clarify what we need to do to better adhere to our values, improve our communications, or be the best we can be in any given moment.
As we evolve through our heroic stages of development, we naturally want to positively impact the instituations that have given so much to us. This solidifies our legacy, which in turn provides us with a deep sense of satisfaction, contentment and joy. This is why serving something greater than ourselves has been called the "ultimate heroic calling."
Positive Psychology and the Heroic Journey go hand-in-hand. Positive Psychology gives us the hallmark characteristics for a happy and fulfilling life. The Heroic Journey helps us apply Positive Psychology to our daily life by providing a meaningful container for our experiences. It shows us the route to take to get the center of ourselves while benchmarking the Positive Psychology characteristics along the way. Each stage of our heroic journey reconnects us with the world from a place of greater wisdom, compassion and unconditional love.
