Slide8

The Call

Slide9

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

Slide10

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

Slide11

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

Slide12

The Threshold

Slide13

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.

Slide14

Threshold Guardians

Slide15

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

Slide16

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

Slide17

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.”

Slide18

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.

Slide19

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

Slide20

Helpers

Slide21

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

Slide22

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

Slide23

The Challenges

Slide24

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.

Slide25

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

Slide26

Tempters

Slide27

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

Slide28

The Abyss

Slide29

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

Slide30

Transformation

Slide31

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

Slide32

Revelation

Slide33

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

Slide34

The Atonement

Slide35

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

Slide36

The Return

Slide37

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
