"We're in a freefall into the future. We don't know where we're going. Things are changing so fast, and always when you're going through a long tunnel, anxiety comes along. And all you have to do to transform your hell into a paradise is to turn your fall into a VOLUNTARY act. It's a very interesting shift in perspective, and that's all it is. Joyful participation in the sorrows, and everything changes."
–Joseph Campbell, Sukhavati
Embrace your pain, go to the places that terrify you, find joy in life's miserable challenges as they burn away your weaknesses in a crucible of fire, nail your old Self to the cross and die through your own terrible crucifixion to be reborn as something MORE, transform your suffering into something beautiful, share your Truth and your hidden gifts with the world, and live on PURPOSE.
Join a group of living warriors courageous enough to walk the path of the Hero's Journey:
