The Way: A Journey of Healing & Self Acceptance

The Way:  A Journey of Healing & Self Acceptance

About the course:
The latest in the Archetypes & A Movie series examines the tradition of pilgrimage not just as an outer  journey but an illumination of the inner spiritual journey as seen in the 2010 film The Way, starring Martin Sheen.  Just as the Hero’s Journey is about discovering who you are, the Pilgrimage is about re-membering who you are and accepting both the grief and joys of your life so far.

This self guided workshop is 3 hours of original audio course in three parts, plus a 35 page Guide to Pilgrimage and a 23 page illustrated workbook with supplementary information.

Join teacher and spiritual director, Jim Curtan as he guides us along the route of the pilgrimage, pausing along the way, as pilgrims do, at various stages of the journey to reflect on the insight, inspiration and intuitive guidance we receive.
