About the event

Our  life is a journey… 

During our journey, we encounter experiences which  we use to form belief systems, through which we navigate our lives,  making us who we are today.

The  Hero’s Journey is based on Joseph Campbell’s realisation that  mythologies around the world seem to carry a predictable pattern.

It  is the journey that each one of us take when we decide to follow the  calling of our heart and our soul. It requires us to take risks and the  willingness to go through various challenges. In doing so, we are  transformed.

In  this workshop we will explore the process of the Hero’s Journey through  the creative and experiential method used in Dramatherapy.


Activities such as movements, voice projections, role play, acting and story making will be used in this workshop.

Aim of this workshop:

• To become aware of the Hero within  (spiritual resilience)

• To enables participants to reach within   to activate their hidden

potentials of rising above the challenges they  are facing.

• To feel inspired to act on one’s   aspirations

* To have fun in the process!   Who Should Attend?

• Those who are going through various   forms of life transitions

* Those who are feeling 'stuck' and  needing to connect to their wiser  Self and to be inspired to move forward

She  is the pioneer Drama Therapist in Malaysia. Having had a background in  Psychology, and being an Indian Classical dancer since the age of 4, she  realised that there was something very healing in the arts.
