With a few friends, walk through a neighborhood or village you’ve never walked through and that you perhaps consider dangerous or weird or that you just don’t know much about. Meet at least three people who live or work in this neighborhood or village. Invite them to speak about what they love about their neighborhood or village. You must begin by crossing one bridge or overpass or crossable something – when you have crossed it, you officially become an apprentice hero! Mark the occasion with splendid subtle pomp!
Why? Because at some point in a hero’s adventure, heroes cross thresholds into new worlds, new worlds which must then be made their own. In other words, heroes expand their hearts to integrate new worlds.
