“An inspiring, stirringly meditative portrait of one man’s profound spiritual influence on a world that has surely needed him.” (LA Times)
We’re delighted to kick the series off this year with another cinematic visit with the beloved Ram Dass, who passed away in December. This time, the teacher and author of Be Here Now shares lessons from a lifetime of spiritual exploration—from his 1960s-era LSD experiments and hours of meditation and praying with his guru in India to his decades of leading workshops in the US and abroad. Through film clips from his talks over the years and recent conversations with filmmaker Jamie Catto, Ram Dass playfully talks about our endless and exhausting impulse to be “somebody,” even while our deeper, true self quietly awaits our arrival. Filled with laughter and love, Ram Dass shares his radiant soul as he reveals the very essence of his work in this engaging portrait.
