Biodanza process inspired by the work of C.J. Pearson & Joseph Campbell’s theory on our archetypical life journey.
Saturday from 12:00 to 19:00
Sunday from 11:00 to 17:30
24-25 February 2024
16-17 March 2024
Guided by a collaborative team of biodanza teachers (Grazia Lombardi, Kristine Stray-Knudsen & Unni Heim) and organized by Unni Heim
Every human being go through phases of excitement, of challange, of caos, of re-orientation, of mastery, of growth.
Campbell explains these phases as a journey of the hero/heroine within and calles it “The Hero’s journey”. It represents the evolutionary process inside of us that is ever evolving, ever growing, ever maturing and learning, ever moving into a more integrated human being.
“The Hero’s Journey” that we will dance during this workshop series has three phases, and is represented by 12 archetypes that characterize each step of the evolutionary journey:
Phase one - The departure:
Something happens, it might be either an oversight, or a mistake, or a contingency. All of these things can reveal an unexpected world where the hero must face a problem. Possible inner resources are revealed to us.
Phase two - The journey or the initiation:
Due to the changes, we enter the world again to explore, create, love, build, destroy. It takes courage to enter this phase, and even if we have support from life, the challenges and new possibilities must be faced by the hero himself. They must be lived.
Phase three - The return:
The hero inside of us has undergone a transformation and has grown into new insight, empowerment, wisdom and mastery. When a new shift happens again in our lives (phase one) we come into it more mature and more resourced.
The four archetypes represented in each of the three phases are:
Departure phase: the Innocent, the Orphan, the Warrior, the Care taker
Journey phase : the Explorer, the Destroyer, the Lover, the Creator
Return phase: the Sovereign, the Magician, the Wise, the Fool
“There are many ways of framing these universal phases and situations in our lives. And in Biodanza we have several different offers building on many of these frameworks. I regularly offer paths of transformation through different trajectors like tarot, archetypes from greec mythology, neo-shamanism an more. This particular process that we offer now is built on the book: “Awaken the Hero within – 12 archetypes we live by” written by C.J. Pearson. And I have invited some of my collegues that are specificaly trained to work within this framework to guide & teach the process together with me. Together we can offer a unique and powerful space for human growth and transformation." Unni Heim
