Would you like some support as you make your way through the winter months? You don't have to do it alone. We'll talk about how hygge practices can help, based on what you're experiencing and come up with a plan you can use right away. Let's take the hero's journey together!
The Hero's Journey for Winter Blues
"The hero's journey is the common template of a broad category of tales that involve a hero who goes on an adventure, and in a decisive crisis wins a victory, and then comes home changed or transformed." -Wikipedia.com
"Part of the transformation is a revelation, a sudden, dramatic change in the way the hero thinks of or views life. ... Then, the hero faces the final stage of his journey: the return to everyday life."
~ The Hero's Journey, mclean.k12.ky.us
Every hero’s journey begins with the call to embark on a spiritual quest. The hero has a great challenge she must overcome, but she doesn’t know how. And she doesn’t feel very heroic at all as the journey begins.
The path she travels and each smaller challenge that she overcomes moves her farther along the path. A guide comes along who offers wisdom, insight and guidance.
Suddenly, the meaning of the journey she is on and her role in it becomes clearer. Where before, her vision was cloudy, now there is light shining on every part of her path.
When she reaches her destination, her problem has been resolved and she has grown in the process of solving it.
Joseph Campbell, who wrote The Hero with a Thousand Faces, believed that this what we do again and again in our lives. We take new journey’s by following the hero’s path. We are called to a quest and we answer the call.
What does that mean for winter blues? Sometimes, the call to the quest shows up in the form of an illness the hero must overcome.
And that is the case with winter blues. The call is your very real struggle each year.
But taking the journey to resolve it doesn’t begin until you answer the call. Once you do that, it’s on, as they say.
Are you on this path of the hero’s journey? Once you begin, I would love to be your guide.
In my own hero’s journey with winter blues, I had to be my own guide. It’s not easy to do it alone. I found it to be almost impossible.
But with help and guidance, the way becomes clearer.
Do you see this process at work in your own life?
Our Hero's Journey Coaching Session
Here's What We Will Do
A winter blues guide and workbook that I'll give you before the session that has the latest information about the strategies & tools you can use to lessen or eliminate your symptoms.
And if you're a homeshooling mom, I'll give you a pdf version of my hygge homeschooling guide for help with homeschooling in winter and we'll make that our focus when we meet.
A session that we'll use to identify & personalize the strategies you need, based on what you're experiencing, so that we end up with a plan you can use immediately.
An intuitive reading: on the hero's journey, the guide offers deep wisdom and insight, in addition to her guidance. And I want to make sure to include everything you need to know when we talk, so that it will be a deeply meaningful experience.
Why this May Sound a Little Vague
Have you ever heard that saying that magic happens when you're dancing? I have only heard it a few times, so it may not be famous.
But it explains why all I have said here may seem a wee bit vague. It's because I know that the magic will happen during the dance of our collaboration when we meet. So each one will be different.
To use a different analogy, it's like making mac and cheese, but covering it with a slightly different sauce each time. I cannot predict what our secret sauce will be, but I know it will be delicious, 'cause it's hard to go wrong with mac and cheese. :)
But you see what I mean?
I know we will get to the end and you will have a solid plan, filled with all that will help and all the things you love. And I know that the information I give you in written form will be exactly the same that I give to everyone else. But what I don't know is exactly how the magic will happen, because it will be personalized to you.
I hope that helps to explain it. Sometimes I find out that my analogies are clearer to me than they are to others. ;)
You can use that form to ask any questions you have and I'll get right back to you.
But if you do understand, then let's go ahead and get started, and I'll see you on the other side. I'm looking forward to it, because that magical process that leads to insight and solutions is so much fun. Very hygge!
