There is something about venturing into the unknown that we humans find intriguing. Indeed, the quest motif appears in the folklore of every nation. In our stories we identify with the hero who sets out on an unknown journey, who then must overcome the obstacles along the way. Joseph Campbell, author of the Power of Myth, believed that we each have a quest and that the hero has a thousand faces - us.

Thrivals 5.0 and the Wondaland Arts Society wll present "questors" - people who have actually dared to leave the unknown limits of their world and have ventured into an unknown and dangerous realm, where the rules and limits are not known, returning as our heroes.

Thrivals is designed primarily for college and high school students. But anyone interested in new ways of thinking is welcome...including grandparents!
