There comes a time in every life – whether it be organic or corporate or other – when change is necessary.
University for Wanderers is the offspring and progression of Think Spiritual – a web-project that began November 2017 and more-or-less ended January 1, 2022.
The original intent of Think Spiritual was to encourage people to “Think” about their personal “Spirituality”. It had no particular goal nor direction and ended up becoming an exploration of a variety of spiritual and personal-development topics – Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey model being the primary.
Think Spiritual called individuals to “Be Your Own Hero” and “Change Your Self. Change Your World.” – messages that will still be championed at University for Wanderers, but Think Spiritual was ultimately about “seeking” and University for Wanderers is going to focus far more on “finding”.
Seeking is wonderful. It’s magical. It’s fun. However, University for Wanderers is questioning if we ever take enough time to examine the things we find along the pathways and trails that we travel.
How do we bring the “Ultimate Boon” of the Hero’s Journey back to our people if we don’t take the time to understand what it is that we’ve found?
How do we raise up the “Child” born to us during the Heroine’s Journey if we don’t take the time to properly care for and mentor it?
University for Wanderers is continuing Think Spiritual’s exploration of the Hero’s and Heroine’s Journeys, but with a much larger emphasis on the “Return” portions of the Journeys.
I shall always encourage you to continue Seeking, but I hope that from time to time you’ll Wander into my glade and rest and take at closer look at the Findings.
As always, Goddess blessings upon you and you have all the weapons and knowledge you need within you.
