Cancer as a Hero's Journey

In this inspiring presentation, Dr. Denis Marier, ND examines the Hero's Journey as outlined by comparative mythologist Joseph Campbell.  The monomyth is a story-thread that runs through all great myths and stories from Odysseus of ancient Greece to Luke Skywalker and Harry Potter. Dr. Marier shows us how these very same elements occur in our own journeys with cancer, helping patients identify their own heroic elements in their individual cancer journeys.  This presentation will help to foster resiliency and find meaning in the face of the great challenge of cancer.
