We all possess the archetypes necessary for the hero’s journey. Though one or two may be predominant in our lives, we can call forth and awaken these inner guides as needed on our quest. In this provocative interview, Carol Pearson reveals how these archetypes can aid our experience of soul initiation. Her message is one of gentleness and recreating daily life as an art form. “What we often experience as our personal problems are not just our personal problems,” she says. “They are the way that we are experiencing our piece of what is essentially a worldwide change that’s happening.”
