FMTV - Finding Joe

Finding Joe

Runtime: 80m 01s | Release date: 2011

This film features: Deepak Chopra.

Finding Joe is an inspiring film about living your purpose, discovering your true self and seeing new possibilities for your life.

In the early 20th century, while studying world mythology, Joseph Campbell discovered a pattern in every hero's story. He called it "the hero's journey". Through interviews with visionaries from a variety of fields interwoven with enactments of classic tales, Finding Joe navigates the different stages of The Hero's Journey and the return home as a changed person.

The film takes us on an inspirational quest of self-discovery. As you slay dragons and uncover treasures, you just may find that the holy grail you seek is closer than you think. Rooted in deeply personal accounts and timeless stories, Finding Joe provides a narrative for how to live a fully realized life - or as Joseph Campbell would simply say, how to "follow your bliss".

Deepak Chopra

"I want to sing like birds sing. Not worrying who listens or what they think" - Rumi
Not one of the many amazing quotes of Joe's presented in this film, but the perfect one for me today.
A must-watch for all FMTV members, in my humble opinion :) <3

I'm so conflicted here. This film is certainly inspiring and I can see how it would give people motivation to tackle a problem in their life. Yet the whole narrative of one 'hero' from a broken world, discovers a secret power within themselves, saves the world seems to deny what we now know about the interconnectedness of everything. Yes, Hollywood movies and certain mythologies follow this pattern but do they not all arise from patriarchal systems that worship individualism? I'm not sure if stories created in the belly of the beast can help us get out of the mess we are in. Don't we need to stop worshipping the individual 'hero' and move beyond that narrative?? This seems to me to be the masculine half of our experience of the world.

The Hero's Journey ultimately is about the balance between masculine and feminine (that's what the Meeting with the Goddess stage is all about https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yniUGW5bURo ). However, the overall point and the point of every Hero story is that you can't change the world until you change yourself (or your Self) first.

We can lament about all the world's problems all we want, but that won't change anything. It starts at home with our Self first. That's not about worshiping individualism, it's about changing the only thing that is actually in your power to change.
