Come along on a wonderful journey with these two master teachers and playfully deep thinkers. Gilligan and Dilts will challenge you, delight you and move you. With poetry, humor, exercises, and some amazing language, you will feel like you are in the room with them as they invite you to journey far and return to yourself again in a new way. Heed their call; read this book. --Bill O Hanlon, author of Change 101, A Guide to Trance Land and Do One Thing Different
This is an absolutely outstanding collaboration between two of the world s foremost transformational pioneers and a breakthrough contribution in the field of personal development. Robert Dilts and Stephen Gilligan have produced a superb account of a magical four day seminar so vivid and dynamic, you feel you are part of it as you read. They ve developed a truly profound, integrated and evolutionary model from leading-edge approaches in NLP, Ericksonian Hypnosis, Aikido, Meditation, Five Rhythms and much more, and co-train it live with tremendous humour, compassion and wisdom. If you want to come more alive, be more present, bring more of yourself to the party with all its joys and difficulties then I wholeheartedly recommend The Hero s Journey as your guide. --Judith Lowe, PPD Learning Ltd, NLP Training, London
This book provides an ideal format for groups who want to explore new dimensions of personhood. For me, it crystallized concepts that I had wondered about, yet had never known how to discuss. Gilligan and Dilts establish a vocabulary for spirituality that for goes beyond the philosophical, into the experiential. They are teaching what mystics have always known and done. --Judith E. Pearson, PhD, NLP Trainer and Licensed Counselor

I hope this book stimulates a new NLP literature to replace the stagnation of many current NLP works.
This is not to say that this book is the whole answer. I have a number of reservations about it - I find the self-congratulatory style of the presenters irritating and the use of pseudo-intellectual language offputting ("the following exercise applies the systemic NLP processes of spatial sorting, somatic syntax and the concept of characterological adjectives ..."). Why can't the book be accessible to everyone ?
But put aside the "new age" gloop (or as the authors have it - "extend into a field of fields, where there is an intelligence ... a mind beyond mind") and you'll find a very interesting and useful resource for advanced NLPers seeking to help themselves and others along the path to self-fulfillment. If NLP is a major part of your self development, then this book is well worth reading. It helped me clarify my goals and issues. I hope other authors will develop the route further.
What a great reminder for us coaches that it's good not to have the answers for the client and to go with the discomfort of the `stuckness.' It's OK for us to be out of our depth and metaphorically to capsize the boat unintentionally. And for those of us looking for new and creative solutions, different ways of thinking, this book offers insights and inspiration.
With Gilligan and Dilts, we witness two great personal development masters, giving us a privileged insight into their work as trainers and healers. They encourage curiosity and listening at a deeper, broader level with an elegance that belies the sophistication of their approach. Above all the generosity of spirit of both guys shines through as they dance, play, tell stories and entertain the audience. Nowhere do you get the sense that they want to be celebrities on the centre of the stage. It's the work and the clients who matter most as the true heroes.
The book is derived from transcripts of a four day workshop and through careful editing, enables the reader to feel engaged in the experience. Wisdom, healing, laughter and energy exude from the page. The pair weave intellectual concepts from NLP, Hypnosis, Aikido, Buddhism, the Five Rhythms and more into the structure of the Hero's Journey as well as Gilligan's own model of the Generative Self. Those who want more than theory are well served with a range of well-explained practical exercises. You can have a go at these on your own or with a coach or colleague.Read more ›
