Thomas Wolfe declared “you can’t go home again” and yet the fulfillment of a hero’s journey requires a return. What, then, does it mean to return home? Is returning to our original home really what we seek? Reflections and exercises will help participants understand the end of their hero’s journey and why some places feel like home and other places do not.
