The Heroʼs Journey: A Journey of Self Discovery- Book Review
The Heroʼs Journey: A Journey of Self Discovery
Stephen Gilligan & Robert Dilts
In my opinion, this is a ‘breakthrough’ piece of work in the whole worldwide fi eld of personal development. Based on Joseph Campbell’s idea that there’s an essential adventure to people’s lives who respond to their ‘calling’, Robert Dilts and Steve Gilligan have collaborated to create a superb workshop – here in vivid transcript – to provide the tools and support along the way.
And it’s an incredibly rich, brilliantly organised and integrated workshop, with approaches from NLP, Ericksonian Hypnosis, Aikido, Buddhism, Five Rhythms dancing and more. There are poems, stories, live demonstrations, group exercises and activities all woven around a kind of central theme of awakening and becoming more present in your life. This book is a truly outstanding achievement, bringing together some of the lifetimes’ work of two of the very greatest teachers and innovators in our fi eld. It deserves to be widely read and deeply appreciated.
