FINDING JOE DVD Patrick Solomon

by: Patrick Solomon

If you re facing big difficulties or important changes in your life, or you re wondering how to give your life more meaning, you ll find this important film enormously relevant, inspiring, encouraging and healing. In the early 20th century while studying world mythology, Joseph Campbell discovered a pattern hidden in every story ever told. He called it the hero s journey . With the help of 20 visionaries including Deepak Chopra, Mick Fleetwood, Gay Hendricks, Sir Ken Robinson and Alan Cohen, Finding Joe explores how the hero s journey unfolds in real people's lives in the modern world, wresting them away from the tramlines laid down by parents, teachers, the media and society in general, and catapulting them into a life where they are compelled to face the unknown and find the true gold that lies within us all. This is what Joseph Campbell used to call following your bliss . The film shows you how to understand what your personal bliss might be, what s blocking it, and how the challenges you meet can help you uncover it. As you slay dragons and uncover treasures, you may just find that the holy grail you seek is closer than you think.

Member Review by Robin Littman

This is a film that everyone who seeks to find their path in life should watch – and more than once. It is based on Joseph Campbell’s book ‘Hero with a Thousand Faces’.
He had studied the great myths of civilisations around the world and discovered a common theme throughout each one - eight stages of the journey that each ‘hero’ has to pass through. This film is a synopsis of the book and enables us to stand back and see our lives in a completely new way as we are taken through each stage.
We all have the ability – especially those on a spiritual path – to discover our purpose in this particular life time and this incredibly inspirational film will help you with this. We show it on the last night of our 7-day detox retreat on the island of Gozo (off Malta) by which time our participants are ready to take a new look at their life – and it works!
