Discover The Power of your Story with Peter de Kuster in the Rijksmuseum for this unique The Heroine’s Journey experience. To discover, enrich and (re) write your story about yourself and your work by viewing the stories of art and artists in the Rijksmuseum. In the process transforming your capacity to successfully have the creative life and work you love.
In this journey, Peter de Kuster, founder of The Heroine’s Journey explores with you the way we tell stories about ourselves to ourselves — and, most important, the way we can change those stories to transform our creative business and life.
“Your story is your art, your art is your story,” says Peter. As human beings, we continually tell ourselves stories — of success or failure; of power or victimhood; stories that endure for an hour, or a day, or an entire lifetime. We have stories about our creative challenges, our art, our clients, our money, our self promotion, our time, our families and relationships, our health; about what we want and what we’re capable of achieving. Yet, while our stories profoundly affect how others see us and we see ourselves, too few of us even recognize that we’re telling stories, or what they are, or that we can change them — and, in turn, transform our very destinies.
Telling ourselves stories provides structure and direction as we navigate life’s challenges and opportunities, and helps us interpret our goals and skills. Stories make sense of chaos; they organize our many divergent experiences into a coherent thread; they shape our entire reality. And far too many of our stories, says Peter, are dysfunctional, in need of serious editing. First, he asks you to answer the question, “In which areas of my creative life and business is it clear that I cannot achieve my goals with the story I’ve got?” He then shows you how to create new, reality-based stories that inspire you to action, and take you where you want to go both in your work and personal life.
Our capacity to tell stories is one of our profoundest gifts. Peter’s approach to creating deeply engaging stories will give you the tools to wield the power of storytelling and forever change your creative business and life.
Become a great Storyteller
That’s why I set up this unique service in the great museums of the world. A new way to use the power of your story. To guide you to life-changing, eye-opening but often elusive works of art, both past and present, the art that truly has the power to enchant, enrich and inspire.
In this journey with Peter de Kuster you’ll explore your relationship with art so far and your unique story identity will be sketched. You will be guided to art that can put their finger on what you want to rewrite in your story, the feelings that you may often have had but perhaps never understood so clearly before; art that open new perspectives and re-enchant the world for you.
You will be asked to complete a questionnaire in advance of your session and you’ll be given an instant story advice and art to read to take away. Your full story advice and art to see list will follow within a couple of days.
