In this workshop, we’ll use the stages of The Heroine’s Journey as a framework to explore our own character arc. Whether you're writing memoir or fiction, this structure can work for you. The journey entails an initial separation from the mother and feminine values, seeking recognition and success from the metaphorical father, experiencing spiritual aridity and death, turning inward to reclaim the power and spirit of the sacred feminine. For each of the four weekly sessions, we’ll explore one stage of your journey.

Maureen Murdock, Ph.D., is the author of the bestselling The Heroine’s Journey, which explores the rich territory of the feminine psyche. This groundbreaking book has been translated into 13 languages, and a documentary, Women of Heart, about the impact of her work, is being made by Australian filmmakers. Maureen is also the author of Unreliable Truth: On Memoir and Memory; Fathers’ Daughters: Breaking the Ties That Bind; Spinning Inward: Using Guided Imagery with Children; and The Heroine’s Journey Workbook. She is the editor of an anthology entitled Monday Morning Memoirs: Women in the Second Half of Life and has published a memoir, Blinded by Hope: One Mother’s Journey Through Her Son’s Bipolar Illness and Addiction, under a pseudonym. She teaches “Writing Down the Soul,” an eight-month memoir- writing program at Pacifica Graduate Institute, and has taught memoir writing in the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program for 28 years.
