The Hero’s Journey
A workshop inspired by Joseph Campbell,
delivered by Michael Chase

Saturday 24th January 2014, 9am-5pm

Cost: £50 (includes light lunch)

To introduce the concept and practice of an approach to the Hero’s Journey inspired by Joseph Campbell, informed by various archetypes indicated by Rudolf Steiner and embodied through theatre games and psychodramatic action methods incorporating masks.

The day will include drama exercises on how to apply the ideas to invigorate own practice.

Therapeutic application
In therapy and self-development, the mask is a bridge between the inner and outer world, offering the user an opportunity to transform unconscious aspects of themselves bringing them into consciousness.
