The hero's journey continues with Part V - The Crossing of the First Threshold. This is the point where our  hero actually crosses into the field of adventure, leaving the known limits of his or her world and venturing into an unknown and dangerous realm where the rules and limits are not known. A good metaphor for this step along the way is the story of Alice in Wonderland. It seems we have fallen down the rabbit hole where nothing looks or feels like we have ever known it before. The old map makers would have said, "Beyond this point, there is no map." Up is down; down is up. Here the hero learns to Trust and embrace the unknown by mustering curiosity and courage.
