        David,

        "Peaceful Warrior" uses mythic themes and thinking to work with life
        issues -- it is based upon a book by a friend of mine.

        I was initially introduced to Dan's book, "The Way of the Peaceful
        Warrior" by a group of Mythopoetic Society members way back in '89 at
        a discussion group. (Shortly after the Berkeley conference, I think.)
        The book reads as "magical realism" -- and, although it is somewhat
        autobiographical, the movie takes many liberties. You would not have
        heard of it as it is an indy film that won't get great distribution or
        advance publicity, or much fanfare except as word-of-mouth will create.

        Dan is, of course, a bit of a "new age" guru-- but, is entirely
        sincere about his philosophy and lives it himself. So, what it's
        worth, I was excited to see a friend make it to the "big screen" --
        one who uses the idea of "bringing myth to life" as his chief mode of
        creative expression. Your pardon if this is something this group has
        moved on from -- Lezlie
