The Human Journey

Uncovering Your Calling and Contribution

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

What does it take to tap your internal wisdom and live up to your highest intentions and potential? How can you respond to life with greater skill and effectiveness?

Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey lays out a universal pattern of human development and expression found in myths and stories across the world—an archetypal map you can follow to achieve deep, lasting change.

Join meditation teacher and executive coach Pamela Weiss and learn to use Campbell’s model as a framework to help unearth your authentic calling and contribution. Engaging in talks, guided meditation, reflection, interactive exercises, creative expression, and ritual, you will journey through an archetypal process of human transformation by examining each stage of the journey:

  • The call: learning to listen deeply to your inner wisdom
  • The departure: letting go of outdated views and behaviors, and stepping into the unknown
  • The struggle: using creativity and skill to work with inner and outer obstacles
  • The awakening: seeing ourselves with fresh eyes, and engaging with life and relationships in fresh ways
  • The return: clarifying your unique gifts to offer the world.

Immerse yourself in the stages of the human journey and support a wholehearted engagement with work and life. If you are looking to deepen your embodiment of how to live with greater clarity, courage, commitment, and compassion, look no further—this is your first step.
