There is a wonderful Hawaiian proverb that simply states, “No rain, no rainbows.” The inherent message suggests that no matter how difficult things might seem, there is always the promise that things will get better; in essence after the struggle, comes the victory! It’s no secret that we are living in a time of great stress, yet we are also living in a time of a spiritual awakening of the human soul. Are the winds of change and the winds of grace one in the same? Perhaps! Stress is a stranger to no one. Yet in these times of turbulent change, we must remember that stress is an opportunity for spiritual growth. This presentation offers insights into the relationship between stress and the health of the human spirit through the wisdom of Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, and many other luminaries. Dr. Seaward weaves theory and story, personal experience and humor, wit and love in a poetic synthesis that both educates and inspires everyone.
After the completion of the session, participants will be able to:
Define the term “stress”
Distinguish the difference between victim and victor
Identify the three stages of the Hero’s Journey
List four ways to effectively cope with stress

Former Good Morning America host, Joan Lunden says, “Luke’s words have touched my life profoundly and helped me to find grace and dignity, the patience and compassion needed to navigate my ever-changing course. They have helped me understand that it is the way I choose to see the world that I will create the world I see.”
