The Shadow Hero Workbook; Lessons to purify the Hero archetype in you; Healthy vs. Unhealthy Hero behavior; Unconscious Patterns 201 (38 pages original material on this topic) Is there anyone NOT purifying their gifts and talents from Shadow Hero behaviors? Possibly the first book in Hero Archetype literature attempting systematic access to disturbed sub- and unconscious Hero patterns; along with, therapeutic directions for resolving them. 18 short lessons designed to increase awareness of dysfunctional Hero patterns. 18 categories of functional and dysfunctional hero behavior are outlined. Therapeutic direction are suggested to clear each, using any method of your own choosing. NOT another Hero story. NOT a rehash of Campbell's hero cycle. The Workbook is stages of the Hero's cycle re-arranged by psychological category, as possible to do. Surprisingly, the lens of the Shadow Hero metaphor, enables us to to view most human problems. Virtually all of our modern problems can be discerned thru this lens. The moral and ethical shortcomings of Wall Street's culture of greed are wholly Shadow Hero behaviors. "The American Dream;" and, Horatio Alger rags to riches, are heroic myths. The Shadow Hero lens lays bare what needs purifying in our behavior based on these archetypes. Let's be willing to be more aware and work on them in our spare time. That's all we can do. I recommend working thru no more than one lesson per day on your self. Remember, as Arthur Clarke said, "focusing on pathological behavior to an excessive degree, is pathological in itself." The returning Prodigal Son focuses on being back in the Home of his Father and how that wonderful this will be. All shadow behavior tends to be UNconscious. We're only most conscious of our waking human experience from the neck-up. Still, we remain responsible for all habits-expressions from the two lower thirds of our psyche, sub- and unconscious. Also for coaches and therapists designing workshops around the Hero's Journey. Flesh out these insights into sequences of fun, social, interactive group processes for groups. The author is available to give trainings if you need to see how this is done so you can do it too. A companion to the 2014 work, Unconscious Patterns 101, Tools for the Hero's Journey of Self-healing https: //www.createspace.com/4899109 Were you encouraged or frustrated to play Hero or Rescuer as a child? Intuition to act out and purify our Shadow Hero is a driving force of our Child within, our Child archetype. Did you play and act out Hero behaviors (more masculine) or Rescuer behaviors (more feminine) or both as a child? The drive of our inner Hero must be channeled into expression, direction and purpose. If this does not occur, this drive can ferment, corrupt and become Shadow Hero behaviors, self-focused into negative, unproductive expressions. Unpurified Shadow Hero behaviors can be worked on and slowly purified by practice of any method practiced regularly. This can be artistic: painting, dancing, muscle-testing, calculus, mothering, writing, counseling, etc. The more self-mastery we have, easier it is to take an honest look at what lurks in the shadows of our own psyche. Concludes with The Hero's Journey as Soul Journey The Hero Prodigal Son

Dans les années 1940, en plein âge d'or du comic, Chu Hing créa La Tortue Verte. Combattant le crime et défendant les opprimés, ce justicier cachait derrière son masque bien plus qu'une simple identité secrète : c'était le premier super-héros chinois. Aujourd'hui, Gene Luen Yang et Sonny Liew font revivre ce personnage sous les traits de Hank, un fils d'immigrés de dix-neuf ans qui enfile sa cape verte pour lutter contre la pègre de Chinatown, dans un hommage hilarant au genre super-héroïque.

Part human, part machine, the cyborg is the hero of an increasingly popular genre of American film and, as Janice H. Rushing and Thomas S. Frentz so provocatively suggest, a cultural icon emblematic of an emergent postmodern mythology. Using the cyborg film as a point of departure, Rushing and Frentz examine how we rework Western myths and initiation rites in the face of new technologies. Through in-depth examinations of six representative films—Jaws, The Deer Hunter, The Manchurian Candidate, Blade Runner, The Terminator, and Terminator 2—Rushing and Frentz track the narrative's thread from the hunter to his technological nemesis, demonstrating how each film represents an unfolding hunter myth. For each movie, Rushing and Frentz show how uninitiated male hunters slowly lose control over their weapons. In Jaws, a 'soft' man, dominated by technology, can re-acquire the heroic hunter qualities he needs by teaming up with a 'savage' man and a 'technological' man. In doing so, he can still conquer the prey. The Manchurian Candidate charts how technology can turn a human into a weapon; Blade Runner perfects the artificial human with its manufactured replicants who are "more than human"; and The Terminator introduces a female hunter who leads humanity in its struggle against technology.

The enduring cultural precepts of the indomitable ethic Igbos of Nigeria have sustained their revered human endowments for ages - morality, imagination, self-awareness, independent will. But severe economic deprivation at the wake of a lost civil war pitted their acute sense of survival against these cultural precepts. The Shadow Knows tells a bemusing story of a reprehensive life of a desperate young man under the menacing weight of his impeaching conscience; and the damning judgement of God and Man he grantically tries to escape. A contextual story of Igbo toughts and culture under strict tradisional rules of actions and consequences.

Tricksters are known by their deeds. Obviously not all the examples in American Tricksters are full-blown mythological tricksters like Coyote, Raven, or the Two Brothers found in Native American stories, or superhuman figures like the larger-than-life Davy Crockett of nineteenth-century tales. Newer expressions of trickiness do share some qualities with the Trickster archetype seen in myths. Rock stars who break taboos and get away with it, heroes who overcome monstrous circumstances, crafty folk who find a way to survive and thrive when the odds are against them, men making spectacles of themselves by feeding their astounding appetites in public--all have some trickster qualities. Each person, every living creature who ever faced an obstacle and needed to get around it, has found the built-in trickster impulse. Impasses turn the trickster gene on, or stimulate the trick-performing imagination--that's life. To explore the ways and means of trickster maneuvers can alert us to pitfalls, help us appreciate tricks that are entertaining, and aid us in fending off ploys which drain our resources and ruin our lives. Knowing more about the Trickster archetype in our psyches helps us be more self-aware.

Set in a country struggling to come to terms with the legacy of its past and the promise of its future, The Shadow Walker is a gripping thriller that introduces Inspector Nergui of the Mongolian Serious Crime squad. As winter's first snow falls on Ulan Baatar, the mutilated body of a British geologist is found in the city's most expensive hotel, apparently the fourth victim of a serial killer. With political pressure to solve the crimes mounting, Negrui, ex-head of the Serious Crime Squad, is ordered back to his former role, building an uneasy working relationship with his successor and protégé, Doripalam, and with Drew McLeish, a senior British CID officer sent out to support the investigation. But the murders continue - leading the officers through the disused factories of the decaying city, out on to the steppes among nomadic herdsmen and illegal gold prospectors, and down into the barren landscapes of the Gobi. And then McLeish himself is kidnapped. With political tensions mounting and time draining away, Nergui and Doripalam piece together a case that encompasses both personal tragedy and shadowy commercial interests in Mongolia's vast mineral and energy reserves. And, finally, in a long-abandoned warehouse amongst the decaying Soviet-era factories of Ulan Baatar, Nergui comes face to face with the only figure who can bring the story to its shattering conclusion.

Steven Heighton is already recognized as one of the best writers to come to the fore in the nineties, a winner of numerous literary awards, whose work is widely translated. In The Shadow Boxer, he delivers a stunning portrait of the artist in the tradition of such great tales as Jude the Obscure, Candide and even Don Quixote, and gives literary life to the Northern Ontario landscape of "the Soo", and the demanding, muscular life of Lake Superior where giant ore-barges make their way over the grave of The Edmund Fitzgerald. Intricately patterned and multi-layered, this is the story of Sevigne Torrins, poet and boxer, who sets off into the world to make it, and whose romantic and professional misadventures take him as far as Egypt before he finds his way back to the Great Lakes. But the classic writerly dream that Sevigne pursues turns out in practice to have a different and darker reality than any he had foreseen. A passionate love story, a gripping narrative, The Shadow Boxer is also about the power of dreams and regret. It heralds a major new Canadian novelist and a master storyteller.
