Join Thomas Doherty for a special Earth Day workshop that weaves insights from the social sciences, psychology, and mind-body health and enjoy a retreat at the beautiful Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California.

The title is inspired by the final stage of the archetypal hero’s journey: Once a hero has completed his or her trials and adventures, their challenge is to manifest their vision in the “real world” of community and society—to be a “Master of Two Worlds.” The workshop is designed to support individuals who carry a vision of sustainability and who labor daily to foster their vision in their own lives, and in their families, communities and organizations.
