Product Description


This text is the sequel to "The Hero Within" and traces 12 archetypal patterns that can aid inner development and the quest for "wholeness" that is life's journey. The archetypes listed in this book are all inner guides that have "been with the human race since the dawn of time...coded in the genetic programming of the species". The author offers a deeper understanding of the journey and its pitfalls, confronting the suffering and loss that are as much a part of human development as victories that result in increased authenticity and power. Additional features include a chapter on gender and diversity within traditional archetypal patterns, a new look at addiction and recovery and a "heroic myth index" for recognizing the active archetypes in our lives. Also included are exercises for developing these archetypes and tapping into their power.

From the Back Cover


"The heroic quest is about saying 'yes' to yourself and in doing so doing, becoming more fully alive and more effective in the world…The quest is replete with dangers and pitfalls, but it offers great rewards: the capacity to be successful in the world, knowledge of the mysteries of the human soul, and the opportunity to find and express your unique gifts in the world".

In this bold and original work, Carol S. Pearson shows that the heroic quest isn't just for certain people under special circumstances. Exploring the many heroic paths available to each of us, at every point in our lives, her innovative program enables us to live heroically by activating and applying twelve archetypes in our lives.

This companion to the best-selling 'The Hero Within' outlines twelve archetypal patterns that can aid inner development and the quest for wholeness.

'These archetypes are inner guides that can help us:'

• prepare for the journey, by learning how to become successful members of society
• embark upon the quest, by becoming initiated into the mysteries of the human soul; and
• return to transform our lives as a result of claiming our uniqueness and personal power

Writing for individuals seeking to realise their full potential and professionals engaged in empowering others, Pearson shows how journeys differ by the age, gender, and cultural background of the seeker, and how archetypes help awaken the capacities of our psyches. A unique diagnostic test, the Heroic Myth Index, and exercises are included to help us understand and awaken our inner guides.
