About the book:
A guidebook for those at midlife struggling to find themselves, applying Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey to the modern reader's quest for wholeness.
Those reaching midlife often discover that they have been bombarded with messages from society telling them who they should be and what their life should look like. While chasing the three-headed monster (achievement, perfection, and the approval of others), author Ben Katt realized that he had lost himself along the way. The Way Home is a book for those struggling to find their way back to themselves, especially at midlife.
Katt distills Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey into an accessible, ten-step program to help readers move beyond their limitations, find fulfillment, and make the greatest possible contribution to their community and world. Anyone - ordinary, extraordinary, or somewhere in between - can embark upon the Hero's Journey, leaving the familiar, falling into the unknown, and ultimately rising to wholeness.
Bringing together personal experience, spiritual wisdom, and well-known mythologies, The Way Home serves as a practical guidebook to inspire and equip people in the second half of life, helping them move from isolation to belonging, from security to surrender, from conformity to wildness. Katt employs a number of tools and rituals to guide readers along the path back to themselves, including solitude, dreamwork, fasting, and meditation.
This book serves as a reminder to those at a transition point in their life that the most important task is to stay connected with their own heart.
