About the Card
The Atonement with the Father is a crucial step in the hero's journey. It represents the protagonist's encounter with the ultimate power, often embodied as a father figure, who holds power over life and death. The father figure, in mythology, can be seen as the archetype of authority and the embodiment of the conscious mind. The hero must confront and overcome this powerful figure in order to continue on their journey.
This step is essential because it allows the hero to acknowledge and heal the father wound, which can be described as an emotional wound resulting from the protagonist's relationship with their own father or a father figure in their life. The hero must confront and overcome this wound to reach wholeness and gain the self-awareness necessary to move forward.
