Lunch Bunch to meet for 'The Hero/Heroine's Journey' Sept. 6Dr. Judy Pierson to lead discussion at hospice center
Delaware Hospice’s Family Support Center will hold a Lunch Bunch Lecture from noon to 1:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 6, where Dr. Judy Pierson, clinical psychologist, will discuss "The Hero/Heroine’s Journey: A Metaphor for Facing Life’s Challenges,' at the Delaware Hospice Center, 100 Patriots Way, Milford.
When faced with any of life’s many challenges, men and women are called to take the hero’s journey. This journey, captured in mythology, movies and books, involves a call to leave one’s comfort zone and transform oneself.
Joseph Campbell, author of "The Hero with a Thousand Faces," suggests all people face the hero’s journey in life. He also describes what people can expect to face on this expedition. Many find his stages applicable to their own lives.
The Sept. 6 lecture will encourage participants to find meaning in life's most difficult experiences and learn the tools that can help along with way.
Lunch Bunch Lectures are organized by Delaware Hospice’s Family Support Center and are open to the public. Registration is required as seating capacity is limited, and the cost of lunch is $5 per person.
Register by Wednesday, Sept. 4, by contacting Michele August at 302-478-5707 or email@example.com.
