107: Hero's Journey: Getting Rid of the Faulty Narratives
“The Hero’s Journey” entails several predictable steps of leaving and returning transformed. Striving towards one’s heroic possibilities and unfolding one’s potentials is deeply pleasurable. Realizing that our narratives can be seen as part of a journey can encourage these pleasurable aspirational attempts and reframe hardships. This concept of The Hero’s Journey is something I use often in my practice and find very useful.

As the scientific community explores its therapeutic use and safety in controlled settings, there are a lot of people outside of that community who are passionate advocates for its recreational use. If we are to be knowledgeable about this subject, it is useful to know the sources that our patients are getting their information from, the history of its use, and what we currently know about its safety.
