What About Me? (DVD)

What About Me? (DVD)

Reviewed by the ORGANIZER of the Ashland Resource Center:

The community came out in force for a fundraiser/benefit for EarthDance and the local premiere of a new film produced and directed by the creators of “1 Giant Leap” – an incredible, masterpiece of a film laced with music from cover-to-cover.

Following the success of their first double Grammy nominated film & album, What About Me? is the latest offering from 1 Giant Leap. This visionary project took Jamie Catto and Duncan Bridgeman to over 50 locations as they explore through music, the complexities of human nature on a global scale, and aims to reveal how we are all connected through our creativity and beliefs, but most of all through our madness.

Covering universal topics such as God, Sex, Death and Money, What About Me? features an incredibly diverse collection of collaborators from Noam Chomsky to Will Young, Maxi Jazz to Tim Robbins, Billy Connolly to Michael Stipe, Eckhart Tolle to Baba Mal, among many others.

Encompassing a TV series, film and album, this is a poignant, emotional and entertaining time capsule of humanity at its most inspirational.

“There is a huge and rising hunger on the part of just about everybody for authentic experience and reconnecting with what’s deepest and best in ourselves in an ever accelerating and complex world.” –Jon Kabat-Zinn

Last week I attended an evening lecture by two dynamic and brilliant women from the Institute for Noetic Sciences (IONS), the organization founded by the Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell after his journey to the moon. Since then they’ve been studying and researching the science of consciousness and spiritual experiences. This is a profound synthesis of ancient mystery schools with modern science.

Their current book, “Living Deeply: The Art & Science of Transformation in Everyday Life” explores, compiles and analyzes some of their decades long research and discoveries from such great teachers as: Ram Dass, Stanislav Grof, Sylvia Boorstein, Jon Kabat-Zinn, George Leonard, Noah Levine, Rachel Naomi Remen, Huston Smith, Starhawk and many others.
