WELCOMING A NEW HERO TO SUNSHINE COAST
Here is the background on this release. The 'Hero's Journey' is a popular framework for understanding myth, fiction, and indeed the journeys in life that we all take. It originates from Joseph Campbell, a mid-20th-century intellectual who was fascinated by myth and storytelling. The journey begins with a "call to adventure," proceeds through challenges and temptations, reaches a climax at "slaying the dragon," and ends with a death and rebirth. It combines will with the Centre's non-12 step methodology which emphasizes Viktor Frankl's methodology of meaning. People need and crave meaning or purpose in life; without this, they drift and can fall victim to addiction to drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc. It is by becoming self-aware of the "hero within," that they can free themselves from addiction and reach a higher level of awareness. With his detailed experience using the 'hero's journey," Cenk is a critical asset to the treatment team at Sunshine Coast, and clients have responded favorably to both Cenk and the use of the framework. For these reasons, the Centre is quite proud to announce that Cenk Matalon has joined the treatment team.
