What we're about
This a group for media makers, storytellers and Angelenos who are inspired by the books, teaching and media of Jordan B. Peterson; especially if you are are interested in the world of the arts, what is happening in the world of media, why stories matter and what are the archetypal stories that have been with us throughout history, (how they inform culture and most importantly how they can tilt the world toward heaven (or at least a better place)).
12 Rules for Life - an antidote to chaos, the new book has been our launch pad for discussion in 2018; taking on a chapter at each meet-up and linking the key ideas to the world of media.
It is an exciting time to be creating, there is a lot of disruption between new and old media. Dragons to slay, malevolence to constrain, and stories to tell.
Media and the "world of the arts" as described by JBP:
"We go to movies; we watch stories; we immerse ourselves in fiction, constantly. That’s an artistic production and, for many people, the world of the arts is a living world. That’s particularly true if you’re a creative person.
It’s the creative, artistic people that move the knowledge of humanity forward. They do that with their artistic productions first.
We have this articulated space that we can all discuss. Outside of that we have something that’s more akin to a dream that we’re embedded in.... The dream is where the mystics and artists live. They’re the mediators between the absolutely unknown and the things we know for sure ... Artists observe one another, and they observe people. Then they represent what they see and transmit the message of what they see to us. That teaches us to see. ....”
