Acceptance & Change: The Hero's Journey

"The great American mythologist Joseph Campbell said that the hero hears the call to adventure and then acts on it.  We are all on a journey filled with opportunities and challenges.  How we progress along this journey depends on our capacity for acceptance and change.  Throughout life we are being asked to step up and meet new challenges.   The hero does not give up.  An exciting life awaits us if we can embrace each and every step along the way."

Speaker: Luanne Allgood 

Luanne Allgood is a life-long student of spiritual studies and an ordained, non-denominational minister.  Among her accomplishments that she is more proud of is her work as a volunteer teacher at the Miami Rescue Mission for 15 years.  Her Creative Living class consisted of 25-35 men recovering from addiction problems and trying to put their lives back together.  The class, initiated and run by Luanne, focused on positive and creative ways to improve one’s life. During her 15 years at the mission, she worked with over a thousand men helping them to believe in themselves and to begin making healthier choices.  

Luanne was the recipient of the “Donor Next Door Award” from Leave a Legacy Foundation for her work at the mission.  The Creative Living Class was featured on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams in the “Making A Difference” segment, and also in USA Today and the Miami Herald. She works as an executive producer in the entertainment industry.  Since moving to North Carolina in 2011, she has been increasingly focused on her spiritual teaching and inspirational work.
