"Finding Joe" - the movie
In studying world mythology, during the early 20th century, Joseph Campbell discovered a pattern hidden in every story ever told, and he called it “The Hero's Journey”.
A truly inspirational film, "Finding Joe" takes us on the ultimate hero's journey: the journey of self discovery. As you slay dragons and uncover treasures, you just may find that the holy grail you seek is closer than you think.
"Finding Joe" is rooted in deeply personal accounts and timeless stories, as it shows how Campbell’s work is relevant and essential in today’s world, and how it provides a narrative for how to live a fully realized life - or as Campbell would simply state, how to "Follow Your Bliss". - from the official movie website.
Watching this movie revealed to me that Joseph Campbell is a most generous gift to the world. He gifted me the opportunity of re-becoming my own Golden Child and re-joining my own Hero's Journey, revealing my own Life Path step by step.
I decided the the deepest way I can honor him is to fully 100% absolutely accept his gift. It has become my life, and oh, what a life it has become. --- Lorenzo
