Do you feel stuck in your life? Do you wish you could go on an adventure, but think that’s only something other (“irresponsible”) people do? Have you stopped searching for the answer to the question, “Who am I?” and decided that it’s too late to even consider asking, “Who do I want to be?”
In his personal memoir, Experiencing the Hero’s Journey, Joseph Riggio, PhD, shares his madcap quest into the mysterious world of the spiritual and neuroscientific under the guidance of a master hypnotist and NLP master trainer, which led him to recognize the “bad learning” he’d accumulated throughout his life and finally experience the freedom to choose to become fully human. In addition to expressing his times of triumph, he also candidly shares his times of despair and embarrassment, so as to offer a clear window into the remarkable journey we’re all invited to experience.
Dr. Riggio offers his story as a guide so that you can know this: you, too, were made to live a good story. And all good stories are about adventure. Only you can live yours, so isn’t it time to finally uncover who you really are and start discovering your own exciting adventure? Welcome to your real life!
“Sometimes a story is more than just a story. Joseph takes us on a wild and unflinching look at his life as an “Apprentice of Wonder” and, in turn, gives us a glimpse into how we might more fully realize our gift of being fully human. Foolish Wisdom is one hell of an entertaining ride – I recognized myself more than I should probably admit – and it should be mandatory reading for anyone who wants to live sanely in an insane world.“
– Michael Cage, An Entrepreneur’s Life
From the book …
“This is a storybook. All I really ever speak or write about are stories. Do not waste your time looking for truth. But, like any good story, it has the potential to transform. As the renowned mythologist Joseph Campbell taught us, ultimately every story told is a story about Adventure. When the story is well told it depersonalizes the individual dream, transforming it to myth … and transforming us in turn. The kind of story I tell here has transformational power because it is not written in a way that makes ordinary sense. It is not even written for your ordinary mind.”
