Spirituality in Film – something completely different – a scientology science fiction film!
Battlefield Earth
Battlefield Earth Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000 (2000) PG-13
In the year 2000, an alien race known as the Psychlos devastated Earth and turned it into a wasteland. In the year 3000, the aliens -- led by the horrific Terl (John Travolta) -- still hold the surviving human population hostage and have forced Earthlings into slavery. But when human Johnny Goodboy Tyler (Barry Pepper) discovers the aliens' major weakness and leads the final fight for Earth's survival, the parasitic Psychlos are in for a shock.
This film is supposed to have all kinds of Scientology messages in it; lets see if we can find them.

Hegel Reading Group
This is the beginning of a challenging group reading of Hegel’s Science of Logic. We will struggle together with this difficult text which is absolutely worth it. Don’t confuse this with the Encyclopedia logic which was written in 1830. The Science of Logic was written in 1812, 1813 and 1816 and begins with the chapter entitled “Being.” The work is available on line and used, so google it.

The Trickster. Can truths be taught through lies and deceptions? Does the ends justify the means in spiritual growth. What should be the constraints on gurus and shamans who might deceive in order to enlighten. We’ll look at the mad wisdom of people like Gurdieff and Don Juan in the Carlos Castaneda books.
