Welcome

Do You Feel Like There’s More To Parenthood Than Overwhelm And Routine? 


Perhaps You Are Hearing An Ancient Call To Explore Your Instincts And Use Your Imagination To Write A New Story Of Parenthood.


Thank You For Answering The Call...

"Following your Bliss is not self-indulgent, but vital; your whole physical systems knows that this is the way to be alive in this world and the way to give to the world the very best that you have to offer." – Joseph Campbell, Hero of a Thousand Faces

REMEMBER…


When You Called Upon Your Imagination to Create Your World?

You Still Can.


The science is in.


We “know” everything we need to know to nurture ourselves, our families, our communities and our Earth.


Perhaps what is needed now is not another study or scientific fact.Perhaps what is needed is a willingness to follow a call to adventure, an adventure that promises to shift our awareness in a way that helps us to return to the wholeness of ourselves and remember…

  • How to imagine.
  • How to play.
  • How to construct the whole-hearted adventure we want to experience.
  • And how to be present so we don’t miss a single enchanted moment of our precious lives.


With the loving guidance you'll find in Parenting as a Hero's Journey you will also discover:


  • How to spot and avoid the traps of soul-draining modern parenting mythology.


  • How to create daily habits that allow you to draw strength, wisdom and inspiration for your rite-of-parenthood journey.


  • How to immerse yourself in the natural magic of connection with your self, partner and child.


  • How parenthood, unlike any other rite-of-passage you will face, provides the greatest adventure of your lifetime.


Parenting As A Hero’s Journey calls upon the insights of Joseph Campbell’s Great Monomyth Wheel – the universal structure of storytellers – that helps us as individuals and communities to create and understand the personal and collective stories/mythologies we live by.  As Campbell teaches us, we all makie daily and life choices through these personal mythologies, which serve as our lenses, or worldviews. Campbell believes it is our unique quest to discover these personal mythologies and then to retool them to our higher purposes.


With parents, many of these mythologies are passed down unconsciously through family traditions and cultural conditioning.  To become aware of our own mythologies and claim authorship of our own stories is the purpose of all forms of conscious parenting.  

If you are a parent who is questioning cultural norms, feeling out of place in the world, or unsatisfied with your “identity” as a parent, you are hearing the ancient “Call To Adventure.”

This Call has inspired heroines and heroes of ancient and modern mythology to leave their day to day lives in search of “Something Else Our Hearts Believe Is Possible.”  


Today, it is the parents who are answering this ancient call that are transforming themselves, and therefore the world.

"Hero's in mythical tales go underground, out to sea, deep into forests, or out into the open desert. The parenthood journey is about intentional vulnerability.

A profound learning awaits us and the potential exists for us to emerge from this journey transformed." – Robin Grille, Inner Child, Inner Wisdom
