The Existential Adventure
Athena – The wisdom and strategy in the hero’s journey
This process is a systematic existential enquiry, through a committed creative production towards personal expansion within a small group of like-minded people.
Every week we explore ourselves through Greek mythology to experience the quality each story represents for us. Our main inpiration is Athena, and the mortal heroes she chose to do great things in her name.
This is a group process work, and the focus is self-enquiry. Participants can expect to gain knowledge on Ancient Greek Mythology in a way that becomes personally meaningful and relevant to their daily life.
We work with archetypes, which are collective tendecies that influence each individual person.
The purpose of this group is to use these archetypes to identify our own internal multiple aspects. Ultimately, we will aim to deconstruct sedimented roles that we play to free ourselves and be more creative.
