The process draws on proven techniques from cutting-edge psychology, as well as mythology, spirituality, philosophy, and even "method acting" (to help you act more real). It is patterned after the mythological structure of the Hero's Quest found in countless stories from around the globe, including some modern movies such as Star Wars or The Lord of the Rings. All of them share the same theme: the life-hero (YOU) goes on an epic Quest (YOUR LIFE), learns to overcome obstacles, and in the process finds him or herself. So come along on your own life-quest.

Check out the following modules for specific helpful exercises. And most and foremost, relax, enjoy life, and always Be True to you!
