The Journey Begins


The Journey is divided into three stages and eight steps:1. Separation (from the known)The CallThe Threshold

(with guardians, helpers, and mentor)


2. Initiation (and transformation)The ChallengesThe AbyssThe TransformationThe Revelation

The Atonement


3. The Return (to the known world) The Return (with a gift)


The Call


The Call: The Invitation Into The AdventureThe Call:offers us the opportunity to face the unknown and gain something of physical or spiritual valuemay come boldly as a sudden, traumatic change or in can sneak up on us gradually


Within this range, the Call takes many forms:We have had something taken away from us, our family, or our society; our quest is to reclaim itWe sense that there is something lacking in our life, and we must find what is missing


We want to save or restore honor for ourselves, our family, or our countryWe realize that something is not permitted to members of our society, and we must win these rights for our people


The Threshold


The Threshold: The Jumping Off PointThe Threshold is the interface between the known and the unknown worldIn the known world we feel secure because we know the rules and the landscapeOnce into the unknown world, we enter a land filled with challenges and dangers.


Threshold Guardians


Threshold GuardiansOften at the Threshold, we encounter people, beings, or situations which block our passage. Threshold guardians have two functions:


They protect us by keeping us from taking journeys we are unready or unprepared.


Once we are ready to meet the challenge, they step aside and point the way. To pass the guardian is to make a commitment, to say: “I’m ready. I can do this.”


Your GuardiansEarly in our lives, our parents function as our threshold guardians. As we get older, our parents’ job becomes more difficult, protecting and pushing.


Your GuardiansAs adults, our Threshold guardians are more insidious. They are our fears, doubts, and threatening behaviors.




HelpersHelpers provide assistance or directionOften the bring us a divine gift which helps us through the ordeal.


MentorThe most important helper on the journey, the mentor keeps us focused on our goal and gives us stability.


The Challenges


The Challenges: journey into the unknownOnce past the Threshold, we begin the journey into the unknown. The voyage can be outward into the physical unknown or inward to a psychological unknown.


Challenges and TemptationsThe early challenges are simpleBy meeting them successfully, we build maturity, skill, and confidenceAs the journey progresses, the challenges become more difficult, testing us, forcing us to change and grow




TemptersTry to pull us away from the pathThey use fear, doubt, or distractionThey may pretend to be a friend or counselorThey always strike our greatest weakness


The Abyss


The Abyss: the greatest challengeWhen we reach the Abyss, we face the greatest challenge on the journeyWe must surrender ourselves completely to the adventureWe must face our fear alone




Transformation: death and rebirthAs we conquer the Abyss and overcome our fears, our transformation becomes completeIt is a moment of death and rebirth: a part of us dies so that a new part can be born




Revelation: changesA sudden, dramatic change in the way we view life.This change in thinking is crucial because it makes us a different person.It usually occurs during or after the Abyss, but sometimes it may lead us into the Abyss


The Atonement


The Atonement: “oneness”After we have been transformed, we achieve Atonement, that is we are “at-one” with our new selfWe have incorporated the changes caused by the journey and are “reborn” We have harmony with life and the world


The Return


The Return: Welcome Home!Return to everyday lifeUpon our return, we discover our gift (based on our new skill or awareness)Essence of the return is to contribute to our societyIt may not go smoothly
