Beyond the Hero’s Journey: Exploring the Paths of the Heroine, Healer, & Seeker
This fun and interactive class explores narratives beyond the traditional hero’s journey. The heroine’s journey, the journey of integrity, the seeker’s journey, and the healing journey each encompass their own stages or beats. We’ll investigate these narratives through their appearance in literature, film, and the lives of public figures, supplementing with poetry, videos, and podcasts. Creative writing, journaling, and other activities will help us gain a deeper understanding of these journeys for use in our writing projects.
