“I think that’s the true nature of the feminine. We are, we are really magical.” ~ Janet Lucy, from the Heroine’s Journey Podcast on “Women In-Depth: Conversations About The Inner Lives of Women” with Dr. Lourdes Viado, Ph.D., MFT
Who am I now? Where am I going? What is my soul’s deepest desire? What is my “Divine Calling”?
The Heroine’s Journey is internal, external, ongoing and eternal. Our souls—our true selves—the blueprint and essence of who we are, continually seek growth, expansion, wholeness and evolution. We are each the character and heroine in our own evolving life stories, inspired by the challenges and opportunities in our lives.
“Divine Ink ~ Illuminating The Heroine’s Journey” is a unique distillation of the seven essential stages of the Heroine’s Journey, offered in a guided course through deep, transformative writing. “Divine Ink” guides and illuminates the Heroine’s Journey, a universal divine feminine path, essential to women’s writing and lives. No matter where you are, you’re always somewhere on the path. The awareness of the seven universal stages is reassuring and empowering.

“Divine Ink ~ Illuminating The Heroine’s Journey” ~ The Course: A Luminous Path through Writing
During this eight-week journey, we articulate and affirm our individual callings as well as the collective call of women today. Each week we deeply explore one of the seven distinct and essential stages of the Heroine’s Journey. These are:
The Seven Divine Stages of the Heroine’s Journey
Stage One: Divine Calling ~ Hearing “The Call” of the Soul
Stage Two: Divine Assistance ~ Gathering Allies and Resources
Stage Three: Divine Illumination ~ Facing the Shadows
Stage Four: Divine Integrity ~ The Road of Trials
Stage Five: Divine Mystery ~ The Dark Forest
Stage Six: Divine Gratitude ~ The Boon!
Stage Seven: Divine Celebration ~ Coming Home
Plus: Reflection & Closure
Through the journey women learn to identify and honor their true inner voice, and how to discern an authentic voice from internalized false-beliefs and the shadows of fear and doubt. With illumination of truth, we clear the interference and obstacles that may have previously held us back. Along the way, we find and carry inner and outer resources to support us through the inevitable tests and challenges of life. Entering the dark forest—the not yet known and mystery—we discover uncertainty to be a powerful place of unforeseen possibility. Here we learn the power of patience and await the “boon” that will light the way home. At the end of the journey, we come home to a new knowing of ourselves—radiant, empowered, intuitive and self-trusting—and the awareness that the journey is ongoing, and the map and compass are always within us.
How The Process Flows:
Each week you’ll receive by email a word document filled with material pertaining to a stage of the Heroine’s Journey—questions for consideration, information, inspiration, and writing prompts (open-ended phrases to facilitate your writing). I suggest you write first in a journal, then invite you to send me anything you would like me to read, witness, and offer reflective feedback to illuminate your soul’s voice and truth. As soon as I’ve received and returned your writing, I’ll send you the next stage. Individualized, the pace is your choice. If you’d like, check in mid-way and upon completion with a Zoom consultation.
COST: $1195 ~ includes weekly material with inspiration, questions and prompts to explore each of the seven stages of the Heroine’s Journey; weekly deeply engaged, reflective writing feedback; plus a final closure for additional reflection and inspiration.
“Janet is the most loving guide and gentle way-shower a writer could ask for. She has a gift for creating and holding such a safe space that your truth can’t help but feel protected emerging from the dark. Her reflections were honest and kind and made me feel both seen and heard. When I set out on the seven-week heroine’s journey for the writer within, my intention was to allow my voice to come through and find its own rhythm. What emerged were pages and pages of poetry and songs and a renewed faith in the power of words and women to heal ourselves and each other.” ~ Elske F.
“I had no idea this endeavor would quite literally be life changing. Each week I received inspiring literature to guide me and gently coax me to write my thoughts in response. I was completely surprised to hear the words that my soul spoke in answer to Janet’s insightful prompts. When I completed each section and emailed my piece, she lovingly witnessed it and returned it with her affirming comments, allowing me to feel heard and validated. Throughout the process, I gained confidence to pursue the dreams I had put aside. I have hence begun working on a book of my own and have ideas for several more projects. I have healed parts of myself that have been in turmoil for decades. It is often said that people come into our lives for a reason. Janet Lucy has honestly helped me to re-write my life.” ~ Deborah A.
