is a personal development activity, trough a three-days open air programme led by facilitators with great experience in active methods. It is based on the Hero's Journey model, developed by Joseph Campbell, and on other studies about the mono-myth and the passage rituals in traditional cultures. The hero's journey is based on experiencing the contact with nature, on exiting oneself's comfort-zone, on shared reflections about aims and boundaries, on rediscovering the importance of passage rituals.learn more
Our "Hero's Journey" is a personal and group development process, during three days of activities, mainly outdoors, managed by expert trainers. It is not a "Surviving School", neither a guru-guided meditation. It is mainly a reflection space dedicated to oneself, to rediscover the importance of passage rituals, maybe not so present anymore in our society but still so important in our life; and to get in relation with Nature, be it the natural environment, but also our personal human nature. Following the ""mono-myth" model", we will explore the steps of the Hero's Journey, including:
The "Hero's Journey" is more and more popular as an universal storytelling model, used in script-writing schools, in creative writing and by videogame designers worldwide. It has such a strong impact, that it proves very useful also in education and personal development. Different schools have different approaches; we will not be your truth-revealing gurus, instead more easily we will be facilitators, maybe "guides". We will give you some proposals, place some challenges, ask for some reflections. Then everybody shall have to work on their own personal discovery and growth process. For this reason we had fun creating beside here a sort of recipe for this rich menu we are offering! We are a trainers and facilitators team with a long international experience on groups activities and experiential learning, many years of practicing active methodologies, outdoor training and non formal education approaches. Our work combines storytelling, games, cinema and literature, with a strong component of experiencing nature and open air, to allow participants to build up personally their own learning - in a situation where personal dimensions are shared in the group.
This programme is perfect for: companies, NGOs and organisations willing to invest on team building and human resources; sport teams willing to improve trust and cohesion in a situation different from the usual ones; schools, teachers, coaches and trainers working with storytelling, creativity, personal development; persone o gruppi alla ricerca di un'esperienza di contatto con la natura, reflection and sharing.read more
The "Journey" can be an amazing adventure discovering ourselves and others, ma si basa su quello che ciascuno decide di mettere in gioco durante l'esperienza. It will be you in charge to define every single aspect and to decide how much to be challenged. We are not promising revelations, but we are granting you an experience rich in inspirations and able to touch you deeply, either on your physical, mental and spiritual level.read more
