...Where Spirit and Action meet.



Intresting Documentary by Velcrow Ripper 2009.

He explores the inter-relations of spirituality and activism, starting with Gandhi and Martin Luther King and their predecessors, going on a global journey of discovery.

Featuring Tich Nath Han, Desmond Tutu, Tree Huggers, Prayers for Communists, That guy who wrote the "Dharma Punkx" book, Arundathi Roy and so on.


A some point in the movie it says:

"Spiritual people need get more active and activists need to get more spiritual"

ahaha I liked that.

Oh I almost forgot. Velcrow started his journey into the dangerous shadow realm of activist spirituality when his best friend died in a shoot-out in Mexico. You can see the last pictures he took with his camera in the beginning of the documentary.

I find it remarkable that once again the impulse for going deeper than before comes from the death of a loved one, a comrade, a dear friend and partner. I wonder what this means for a world spirituality today.

I feel reminded of a theme on a related thread, where we explored the topic of comradeship and fidelity, exemplified by a controversial art piece by Arno Breker.

This looks great, Christophe.  Thank you for the heads up.  As you know, the theme of the death of a close friend driving one deeper speaks to me directly and personally.

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
