Judyth Piazza chats with E. Raymond Brown, "Ghettophysics- Will the Real Pimps and Ho's Please Stand Up!"

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

E. Raymond Brown is a visionary African-American author, director, actor, producer, musician, lecturer, and workshop facilitator. He has studied somatic, archetypal and aboriginal psychology, Taoism, shamanism, metaphysics, quantum theory, transformation facilitation, geo-politics and pan-Africanism. Much of this background is evident and can be seen in his first cinematic work entitled, "Ghettophysics- Will the Real Pimps and Ho`s Please Stand Up!"

In his film work, a collaboration with producer/director William Arntz (What the Bleep Do We Know?), and an adaptation from his self-published book appropriately titled the same, Brown takes you on a thought-provoking journey from the streets to the White House to Iraq to the corporate boardrooms to the flamboyant preachers with their Rolls Royces, finally arriving deeply into the psychic realm. He exposes audiences to a first-hand look at the archetypal "pimp" or manipulation game and how people prostitute their humanity daily for money, power, status, patriotism and even spiritual salvation, both consciously and unconsciously. The spectrum of the use of the terms pimp and ho (short for prostitute) is deeply explored as we are lead into exploring the archetypal realm.

 A native of Los Angeles, CA, Brown`s love for raising the socio-political and cosmic consciousness level of his community emerged while he was a student at Long Beach State University majoring in Pan African studies. During that period he was also immersed writing and producing music. Sensing that there were still crucial components of his understanding of the world missing, Brown went on to study various shamanic teachings, along with explorations into the fields of somatic and archetypal psychology. Many of his experiences, both personal and professional, gave birth to the idea of publishing a book dealing with indigenous studies, Jungian analysis and the human transformation process. Love for music production eventually led to his branching into film.

 At this phase of what Brown identifies as an initiation process, his focus is on impacting and expanding the human thought spectrum with empowering, educational and entertaining film, music, literature and workshop content. He is in the midst of designing various workshop series formats for adults with a transformational focus. But most importantly, Brown feels, it`s about spurring and nurturing to the growth phase of high school and college aged students.
