When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I am a born activist
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence, Human Rights
So what is it?
Opening our hearts to ourselves, each other and the planet, activating our natural born compassion.
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Fear
More
Fear, on every level, blocks us, stops us, trips us up and allows us to be manipulated. Politicians have used this to keep us believing in war, in hatred, in the need for division and seperation. The antidote to fear is Love. Real love, universal love, agape love, fierce love.
Can we change the world?
Definitely
More about me
I'm a documentary filmmaker, and a rebel for truth and love. I'm in the midst of “The FIerce Light Project”, a cycle of feature documentaries, creative non-fiction novels, webcasts and conferences driven by the search for possibility in a time of darkness, centered on the question: how can we turn end times into new beginnings? It is fueled by the belief that these tumultuous times are the growing pains of the planet, as we grope our way through a stormy adolescence towards a spiritual maturity, in the midst of very real threats of global collapse.


We are currently distributing ScaredSacred, a feature documentary, which is part 1 of the trilogy, based on my five year journey to the ground zero's of the world, in search of stories of transformation in the face of crisis. After picking up awards at festivals around the world, ScaredSacred has been launched theatrically with tremendous sucess and is now out on DVD. You can get it on Amazon.com, Netflix, Blockbuster etc

www.scaredsacred.org

I'm now beginning the release of FierceLight:When Spirit Meets Action, part two of the Fierce Light trilogy, about the rising phenomena of 'Spiritual Activism' that is unfolding around the world. Contemporary stories in the vein of Gandhi and Martin Luther King. It is about the unbelievable power that happens when spirit meets action, a zeitgeist that's building around the world. www.fiercelight.org


FierceLight podcast

The next in the series is “EvolveDissolve: Another World is Here” about the evolution of conscioussness, and the search for stories of evolutionary communities around the world.

Parallel to that, I'll be shooting a new feature doc, called “Redvolution:Dare to Disturb the Universe” co-directed with spiritual cowgirl and Redvolutionary, Sera Beak, author of “The Red Book: A deliciously unorthodox approach to igniting your divine spark.” It's about becoming you own spiritual super hero.

New Years Evolution

Posted on December 31, 2009 at 9:23pm 0 Comments

Happy New Years!



I love this transition time - it’s a great time to shed old snake skins, and move into new possibilities. A great time to renew commitments and abandon the ones that no longer fit. A great time for looking back, with gratitude, on the past year. My dear friend Carly Stasko loves to ask herself: what are the three things I am grateful for today? She does this at meal times, but on New Years, she looks back over the year and asks - what are the three big things I’m… Continue

PRAYERS FOR BAT NHA

“If we want to end the war in the world, we need to end the war in our own hearts.”





I made this short film in support of Thich Nhat Hanh, and his sangha in Vietnam, who are in crisis right now. Please support them, and share this video widely.



Thich Nhat Hanh's monks and nuns of Bat Nha Monastery are facing religious persecution in Vietnam right now, from the communist government. Threatened by the rising popularity of Thich Nhat Hanh's form… Continue

Well it's been an exciting year of travelling around the world, helping Fierce Light shine. The responses have been so tremendous, and moving.
