Brent Marchant is a lifelong movie lover and student of metaphysics. In his book Get the Picture: Conscious Creation Goes to the Movies, Marchant combines these two passions, showing readers how movies can be drawn upon for inspiration in learning how to make use of the conscious creation process in our everyday lives. As a seasoned free-lance writer and editor, Marchant covers this unique fusion of topics with wit, insight and commonsense practicality. Conscious Creation Goes to the Movies Offers a basic approach to the subject, explaining what conscious creation is all about and showing how movies illustrate its principles. This format incorporates information on films from a wide variety of genres, including comedies, dramas, classics, science fiction, and more.
Conscious Creation in Current Films An especially popular offering during movie awards season, this format looks at recent releases in terms of how they illustrate conscious creation principles. This information can be supplemented with background information on the subject and additional film examples from the book. Current Trends, Current Films, and Conscious Creation If art reflects life, and life reflects art, in either case it all begins with conscious creation. This approach examines how current social, political, and other trends begin from within and spring forth into materialization, with art forms like film reflecting those developments and furthering their emergence.
