Experience from within the twists and turns of a timeless plot of your choice
Did you ever wonder What the Minotaur feels as he sees Theseus advancing towars him, how Medea comes to the point of killing her own children, or why, at the last second, Orpheus turns back to glance at Eurydice?
On the course of One person, one myth, you live the life of a mythic character that puzzels you. In their footsteps, you enact their adventures trusting what your own experience — sensations, emotions, intuition — suggests to you on the spur of the moment.
Thus, reaching far beyond any preconceived fantasy or intellectual concept; you touch upon the true thread of their adventure… which is also that of your own adventure. This deeply intimate experience then enriches your daily life without your having to think about it.
Choosing the myth that you'd like to explore
You can freely choose the myth that you want to explore.
What to choose from? Europeans are generally aware of myths originating in the Near-East and Greece, Scandinavia or the Celts. But there are also other continents and numerous civilisations have left us myths filled with overwhelmin humanity and beauty.
How to choose? Leave intellectual considerations aside and start from what made you wonder as a child or makes you wonder today. Trust your sense of mystery and go in all simplicity for the “beautiful, or strange story”.
You don't know anything about myths? I doesn' matter. Start with myth excerpts from our Hero's Journey blog that you can access through characters or civilisations. You then can explore more in depth what attracte you, using conventional bibliography.
Your final choice should depend mostly on how attracted you feel, how stirred is your imagination, how you inuitively feel that this story has “something to tell you”…
You can also ask to be accompanied in your choice if need be (as soon as you book, and before the workshop).
Si, malgré tout, vous en éprouvez le besoin, vous pourrez demander à être accompagné dans votre choix (dès votre inscription, et avant le séminaire).
A shared adventure
This is a shared adventure, you're not alone! Other explorers will contribute to embody the other protagonists in “your myth” just as you'll do for them. This means that you wil also learn from your experience of the driving forces in other myths than “yours” (knowing that you have no obligation to contribute to what you don't feel attracted to).
