The Heros Navigares®
“The Heros Navigares” is a comprehensive package of tools, gathered in a well-thought-out concept of a board game, serving for group or individual development work in any area of life and work.
Its main assumption is to support the players in determining and achieving their goals / transformation / change. The idea of the game is also to strengthen the player’s sense of power, prime mover, and motivation to act.
The uniqueness of the game
The Heros Navigares game was created as a result of work on a prototype model supporting the selected social groups in the transition from education to employment. It won the competition for social innovations in 2017!
The concept of the game, inspired by the monomyth by Joseph Campbell – a mythical expedition of the hero, an archetype present and strongly rooted in our culture for thousands of years. The expedition of the mythical hero in the game was used as a metaphor for every human journey to a designated destination. As a journey through our own life with the typical and repetitive stages of this trip, such as hearing and taking up the challenge, crossing the threshold, self-discovery, overcoming adversity / internal demons, reaching the goal and transformation.
Building the concept of a board game on the hero’s canvas makes the players, in an almost intuitive way, reach for very important aspects which influence their decisions. As a result, they also impact the achieved goals. These aspects are related to their most important values, identity, vision, real mission – that is all which is of great importance in making changes, transformation and materialising intentions.
