About the Hero’s Journey Experience

The Hero’s Journey experience is a life-enhancing yearlong program set in the Majestic Canadian Rockies, and led by experienced retreat guide and nature lover Kent Bonertz. The program has been designed to embrace four core pillars: The Hero’s Journey, The Forces of Nature, The Circle of Power, and Your Meaningful Plan.

The Hero’s Journey

The Hero’s Journey is based on the work and teachings of 20th century mythologist, writer and lecturer Joseph Campbell. During the year long experience, you’ll be personally guided on your very own Hero’s Journey, as you’re ushered forward through a structured program that includes storytelling, music, poetry, and other key elements inspired by various cultures and teachings. Ultimately, you’ll see with illuminating and enlightening clarity the special gifts that you’re uniquely meant to share with the world. Our ancestors had many great teachings and this program leverages these time-tested truths.

The Force of Nature

The Canadian Rockies and the rustic natural splendor that will surround you day and night are a core part of the experience. Indeed: nature is a powerful force that has something to teach you about who you are, and who you’re meant to become. As you unplug and reconnect with your inner being, you’ll hear and heed this message louder and clearer than you ever imagined. Nature is our teacher.

The Circle of Power

The experience is designed to be a powerfully personal and intimate journey during which you’ll discover hidden talents, encounter new possibilities, and reconnect with your true, authentic self. Yet be assured that you won’t be “traveling solo.” You’ll be part of a small, compassionate and caring group that both shares and supports your journey; just as you share and support in theirs.

Your Meaningful Plan

The ultimate purpose of the experience is to empower you to apply your new meaningful plan in every aspect of your life, including your career, your family, your friendships, and your connection to the community. You’ll also develop into a role model who inspires others on their journey towards fulfillment; not just by what you do and say, but also by the quality of your very being. This program is about getting in touch with your gifts, creating a meaningful plan and then executing that plan.
