“The black hero’s journey is about saying ‘yes’ to yourself and in so doing, becoming more fully alive and more effective in the world…The quest is replete with dangers and pitfalls, but it offers great rewards: the capacity to be successful in the world, knowledge of the mysteries of the human soul, and the opportunity to find and express your unique gifts in the world”.

In this bold and original seminar, Peter de Kuster and Elvira Semmoh show that the black hero’s journey isn’t just for certain people under special circumstances. Exploring the many heroic paths available to each of us, at every point in our lives, this innovative program enables us to live heroically by activating and applying twelve archetypes in our lives.

This journey in the footsteps of black heroes and heroines of past and present outlines twelve archetypal patterns that can aid inner development and the quest for wholeness.

‘These archetypes are inner guides that can help us:’

• prepare for the journey, by learning how to become successful members of society
• embark upon the quest, by becoming initiated into the mysteries of the human soul; and
• return to transform our lives as a result of claiming our uniqueness and personal power

Writing for individuals seeking to realize their full potential and professionals engaged in empowering others, Peter and Elvira show how journeys differ by the age, gender, and cultural background of the seeker, and how archetypes help awaken the capacities of our psyches. An unique diagnostic test, the Black Heroine’s Journey Index, and exercises are included to help us understand and awaken our inner guides.
