Welcome to my official website, created to help heroes and heroines like you use the power of story to transform your life and your world.

– Author Carol S. Pearson

Twenty-first century heroes and heroines transform their worlds by becoming their best and most authentic selves. In this process, they learn to solve persistent puzzles such as:

  • How can I both fulfill my potential and help others to do the same?
  • How can I influence the culture of an organization, a social group, or the larger society to help it thrive more fully?
  • How can I communicate in ways that draw to me what I need and want to support my endeavors and values?

Answering such questions requires a deeper dive than is usual into discovering the positive motivations within you and other individuals and groups.

This website is designed to help you develop the heroic tools of narrative and archetypal intelligence that allow you to recognize patterns invisible to most people—that is, the stories you and others are living unconsciously, which determine what people want and how they assume they can get it.  Making these stories conscious clears a path for you to pursue your heroic journey while also having the flexibility to inspire and influence others—even those living stories quite different from yours.

March 18, 2020 Lovejoy Blog: Frozen II: Disney’s Response to Social Isolation in the Time of Coronavirus

By Rebekah Lovejoy  Disney has just released Frozen II on Disney+, surprisingly early. I am watching it for the first time. Sitting here witnessing Elsa climb up the stairway of ice from the raging sea, I feel as though I am watching an ascension, the reverse movements of Inanna’s descent. How long have we waited for a […]
