Ratatouille: Fate, Destiny & the Hero’s Journey

I am very pleased to offer this series of self-guided audio workshops providing in-depth commentary on films, which I’ve used at CMED and other venues to teach about archetypes, symbolic language and spirituality.

“I know of no one else who could have created ‘Archetypes & Movies’. Jim’s knowledge of both film and archetypes is breathtaking, not to mention his entertaining style.”
~Caroline Myss, author of Sacred Contracts

RatatouilleA Journey of Fate or Destiny?
I’ve chosen to begin this audio workshop series with Ratatouille the 2007 animated film from Disney/Pixar. Ratatouille is a story about the hero’s journey and the choices that transform a fated life into a destined one.

A fated life is governed by unquestioning submission to the laws, beliefs, customs and values of the tribe (society). In order to achieve a destiny the hero must learn to choose intuitive guidance over the ego’s fear of humiliation and failure. This workshop examines these ideas along with a rich experience of Joseph Campbell’s seminal work on the archetype of the hero’s journey. Even if you’ve watched this film with me before, you’ll find that this course brings more insights and a whole new depth to the experience.

“A completely original, instructive, and inspiring look at the hero’s journey through the lens of our favorite super rodent. Don’t miss it.” ~Mark Matousek, author of When You’re Falling, Dive

What is Mine To Do?

 

Franciscan friar, Father Richard Rohr is among the most challenging of contemporary spiritual teachers and a long-time favorite of mine. I have at least a dozen of his books on my bookshelves and a drawer filled with his recordings. His CD series, Great Themes of Paul, transformed every bias I had held about St. Paul and, seeing Paul from Richard’s perspective, have come to love and revere him.

For a while I was a Rohr groupie and showed up at every lecture, class or conference he gave in Southern California and I attended several weekend conferences that the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) presented in Albuquerque.
