Joseph Campbell is best known and recognized as an American mythologist, writer,  and lecturer for his work in comparative mythology and religion. His work is vast, covering many aspects of the human experience.  His philosophy is often summarized by his phrase: "Follow your bliss."

Before his death in 1987, Campbell completed a series of interviews with journalist Bill Moyers that aired as a six part television documentary originally on PBS in 1988 titled “Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth.”  The series demonstrates how humankind has documented through the rich use of metaphors, symbols, and rituals, the cultural understandings of what it means to be human.   And most interestingly, they all point to the same thing; “Thou Art That”.

There are many JCF MYTHOLOGICAL ROUNDTABLE(R) Groups throughout the world whose members get together to share, deepen and explore their passion for mythology/comparative religion and the work of Joseph Campbell, and it's all made possible by people such as yourselves.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
