Before I moved back to the USA in 2006 to become a Catholic priest, I lived and worked in England running a company called Ordinary Hero.
Ordinary Hero, and its business arm Working Hero uses the plot line of the classical hero's quest to give people a simple map of the change process. Many people are faced with change in their lives, and they resist the change because they view the change as a threat. They don't have a map for the journey. They don't know where to turn next.
I devised Ordinary Hero seminars to help people understand the change process and see it as a positive challenge. The simple concepts are illustrated with clips from exciting movies like Lord of the Rings, Hardball, Color Purple, Bend it Like Beckham and The Matrix. We used the seminars to help guys in prison, victims of violent crime, challenging kids in middle school, college student and others who wanted a positive way to view the challenge of change.
Working Hero takes the concept into businesses so that management trainees, executives and ordinary workers in business could have the tools to manage change in an effective and dynamic way.
Now that I serve as a Catholic priest I am launching Spiritual Hero Retreats. Although I am a Catholic priest, the retreats are not specifically Catholic. They are Biblically based and traditional in their approach, but I use exciting film clips to illustrate the ten stages of becoming a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ.
This blog is a forum for people to gather more information and discuss How to Be a Spiritual Hero.
