Don’t believe everything you read in the headlines. There IS something to see here. In fact there are THREE things to see, three very different documentaries that I am glad that I watched! So much so, I’m going to watch them all over again.
In the early 20th century, while studying world mythology, Joseph Campbell discovered a pattern hidden in every story ever told and he called it “the heroes journey”. A truly inspirational film, FINDING JOE takes us on the ultimate heroes journey: the journey 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…
This documentary helped me understand better what I’m going through on my own journey within.

A documentary written, directed, and narrated by Tom Shadyac. The film asks the question: “What is wrong with the world, and what can we do about it?”, and explores Shadyac’s personal journey after a bicycle accident in 2007.
One Strange Rock
This documentary left me in AWE! Hosted by Will Smith, One Strange Rock is a thrilling journey exploring the fragility and wonder of our planet, one of the most peculiar places in the universe.
It’s the extraordinary story of why life exists on Earth, brought into perspective by the only people to have left it behind: astronauts.
This series was filmed in 45 countries (including my own, Norway), on six continents, and from outer space. It reveals the twists of fate that have allowed life to thrive on Earth and how we are all connected in many surprising ways.
One Strange Rock premiered on National Geographic in 2018. It was released on Netflix in 2019. In the USA, it left Netflix for Disney+ in January 2020. You can also find it on Prime Amazon.
“In the physical world there are innumerable contrasts, and these may for convenience sake, be designated by distinctive names. There are sizes, colors, shades or ends to all things. There is a North Pole, and a South Pole, an inside and an outside, a seen and an unseen, but these expressions merely serve to place extremes in contrast. They are names given to two different parts of one quantity. The two extremes are relative; they are not separate entities, but are two parts or aspects of the whole.” (Master Keys, Part 19)
