Rebel Wisdom

When our existing ways of thinking break down, it's the rebels and the renegades, those who dare to think differently, who need to reboot the system.


  • What is Rebel Wisdom?

    Created: 10 August 2019

    What is Rebel Wisdom?

    Welcome to our website. Above you'll find a short trailer describing who we are and what we do. We've included a selection of our films here on the website - all of which can be found on our YouTube channel. As well as creating films and documentaries, we run live experiences and retreats. You can read more about our mission and who we are in our About section.

  • The Science and Psychology of Polarisation (pt 1 of 4)

    Created: 08 August 2019

    How can we even begin to solve many of society's problems if our conversations keep breaking down? Polarisation has been growing for decades, and supercharged by social media filter bubbles. This is the first in a series of films from Rebel Wisdom looking at the science and psychology of polarisation, with interviews with Peter Levine, Dr Stephen Porges and others.

  • John Cleese: Philosophy, Spirituality & Political Correctness

    Created: 10 June 2019

    John Cleese is the legendary star of Monty Python & Fawlty Towers. He also has deep interests in philosophy and psychology. We grabbed him for a quick half hour conversation about philosophy, spirituality and the recent media storm over his tweet (first made in 2011 and repeated last month) that London "was no longer an English city".

  • Ken Wilber: The Intellectual Dark Web, An Integral Conversation?

    Created: 03 March 2019

    The Integral philosopher Ken Wilber has been predicting the emergence of a new way of thinking since the 90s - one that embraces paradox and nuance, and lets go of the ideology and fixed thinking of the past - an "integral" consciousness. He believes that the Intellectual Dark Web is the start of a genuinely next level - or Integral - conversation.

  • Glitch in the Matrix II: Origin of the Intellectual Dark Web

    Created: 01 February 2019

    The phrase 'Intellectual Dark Web' was first coined by mathematician Eric Weinstein in early 2018, it quickly spread. Was this just a chance remark, or was there a plan? This film explains how the creation of the Intellectual Dark Web was part of a long term strategy, and sketches out Eric's account of the history, and the future of the project.

  • Where Gillette Went Wrong

    Created: 17 January 2019

    Gillette's newest ad, 'The Best a Man Can Be', has created a social media firestorm in the last few days. We sat down to discuss the reaction, the cultural context behind it and our response to the ad. Drawing on our interviews with Warren Farrell, Cassie Jaye and our experience leading men's retreats, we ask whether the ad is helping men or toxic in and of itself.

  • Stan Grof, 'the depths of the psyche'

    Created: 08 January 2019

    What is the nature of the human psyche? How does spiritual experience relate to mental distress? And why does western culture have such a problem with ecstatic experience?

  • Having a real conversation, Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying

    Created: 26 December 2018

    Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying became the most high profile victims of campus activism, and recently they have become inaugural members of the so-called Intellectual Dark Web. The aim of the IDW is to have difficult conversations in public. How do we have real, generative conversations?

  • Back once again with the Renegade (Zen) Master

    Created: 26 December 2018

    Our interview with Zen master Doshin Roshi, 'A Zen master talks about Jordan Peterson and the Shadow', was a viral hit, one of our most viewed films of the last year. We go back to talk to him about the reaction to the film, why people either loved or hated it - and why some found him a creepy cult leader.
