Initiation and Transformation
When called to adventure, we must cross the Threshold.
The Threshold is the “jumping off point”
The gateway to the unknown
People, beings or situations that block passage
Found at threshold
Often they bring a talisman
Most important is the mentor.
Appear throughout the journey
Try to pull us away from our path.
May pretend to be a friend or helper.
Use fear, doubt or distraction.
Represents the greatest challenge in the journey.
Hero faces his greatest fear, and must face it alone.
Here the hero must “slay the dragon”
As the hero conquers the Abyss, his transformation is complete.
Like the Phoenix
Fear must die to make way for courage, Ignorance for enlightenment, dependency for independence
Asudden, dramatic change in the way the hero thinks or views life.
“at one” with his new self.
The hero has incorporated the changes caused by the Journey and is “reborn”
The “Om” the Hindu symbol of “oneness”
Final stage of hisjourney: Return to everyday life.
