In association with Conscious Frontiers, the Follow Your Blissters podcast, hosted by Will Gethin, explores The Hero’s Journey as a map for living and transformation.
In bi-weekly episodes, Will interviews visionaries, thought leaders, spiritual teachers, environmentalists, activists, writers, artists, and extraordinary everyday people, about their experience of living out The Hero’s Journey – or Heroine’s Journey – in their lives.
Mythologist Joseph Campbell, who created The Hero’s Journey, was also famous for his mantra for living ‘Follow your Bliss’. He later updated it to ‘Follow Your Blisters’ acknowledging that when you truly follow your authentic calling you’ll inevitably meet considerable challenges and it’s through life’s challenges that we get to overcome our fears and grow. Real bliss tends to be hard-won, all the greater for any endurances borne along the way.
Sharing the inspirational human journeys of maverick modern pilgrims, the Follow Your Blissters podcast aims to inspire and guide people to find their true calling and follow it, navigate any challenges arising, and share the best of their evolving skills, wisdom and experience for the benefit of their communities.
