The Hero’s Journey

Hero's Journey Overview

The Hero’s Journey for Overcomers of Sexual Violation™
provides a lit path, with practical tools and a supportive community,
to transform from survivors into thrivers in the aftermath of sexual violation.

Stage 1: Awakening

Awakening stage

I recognize the impact of my past, and I’m ready to begin my journey.

In the Awakening stage, you recognize that today’s pain is rooted in your violation, and you embrace the possibility of healing. You move from the known world – familiar and limited – to the world of transformation.

I want to begin or expand my Transformation work.

In the Transformation stage, a safe, loving network of healing resources empowers you to slay the dragons of shame and PTSD. Your mental, emotional, physical, and relational symptoms – manifestations of underlying trauma – begin to fade. You become fully immersed in the transforming world, and you begin a new life.

In the Reward stage, you reap the benefits of your Transformation work by actualizing the dreams, designs, desires and delights inside you. You reclaim the treasure of your true self — your freedom, child-like joy, spirit, and integrated story. You feel Big inside, and play Big in the world. You shine again, without shame.
