The Way of
The Courageous Vulnerable 

By: Matthew Harris

Finding Meaning and Purpose Through the 7 Stages of the Hero’s Journey

The Hero's Journey

“Just see if you can enjoy being sick”, my brother said to me as I lay on the couch sweating from a virus that I had had for a week. I quietly cursed him as I acknowledged the absurd logic.
He was right.


Eventually, after years of struggle, I realised there was a great purpose and journey I was living through or was living through me. '


This great purpose is the Hero’s Journey.

The Hero's Journey is a timeless template used in stories across cultures and across time, illustrating how ordinary people achieve great and noble outcomes. 


By going on a journey that takes you on a path into your vulnerability and courage, you uncover your hidden, true nature and calling. 

Written by author, teacher and spiritual guide, Matthew Harris, The Way of the Courageous Vulnerable will help you to:

  • Appreciate your Self, your life’s Journey and your legacy 

  • Understand the power and purpose of your challenges and achievements

  • Be reassured that you live in a benign universe guiding you to the most optimum experience, drawing out your greatest gifts, talents and mission 

Having experienced his own Hero’s Journey, enduring extended periods of depression, illness, poverty and powerlessness, Matthew shows us that we live our life’s purpose on the journey through our ordinary lives.


The Way of the Courageous Vulnerable is the story of a courageous hero; You.
