The conference will run from 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 4 to 1 p.m. Sunday, May 6.

Pearson leads the field of scholars who are exploring the power of archetypes to inspire individuals to experience life with deeper awareness. She is the author of the classic text, The Hero Within, and her latest book is The Transforming Leader.

The conference, titled “Awakening: Be Fully Who You Are,” is an opportunity to engage with Dr. Pearson to deeply experience the transformative practices to personal transformation and contribution.

“The heroic quest is about saying yes to yourself and in so doing, becoming more fully alive and more effective in the world,” she says.

Pearson describes her first influential bestseller as an operating manual for the psyche. She has said she wrote it for ordinary people who feel they could live extraordinary lives, and convincingly sets out to show how harnessing the power of mythic archetypes (for example, the Warrior, the Altruist) is a key to personal transformation.

The Hero Within is no learned treatise, but its sheer accessibility has made Jungian archetypal psychology understood by a popular audience.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
