"Egypt State of Mind"
Egypt State of Mind is the product of a journey. Our Producer/Director participated in a tour to Egypt with a sacred travel agenda, to explore new connections for himself. What he found was a surprising story that facilitated one's own curiosity for self knowledge, which gives the project purpose as well as definition. The experience also inspired an already growing love for looking through a lens and capturing the stories around him.
This film is what he saw watching other travelers experience their own emotions, a variety of spiritual connections, and in one case, a life changing journey. The viewer gets to share the experience through the same images and sounds, but voyeurism is amplified when the instruments are turned to the camera and the viewer becomes the participant.
The common thread which makes this project most viable is the shared fascination with the unexplained. Egypt is an archetype of mystery and the unusual instruments, ceremony and shamanic explorations create a moment of self reflection that "this is also possible for me". Inspiring others to their own self actualization is the unveiled destination.

Faith Mind is the complete reading of the Hsin-hsin Ming, by the 3rd Patriarch of Zen Buddhism, as translated by Roshe Richard B. Clarke. His translation is the most popular because of it's poetic presentation. It also features commentary and a conversation about history and non-ordinary thinking.

Sudden Awakening is an epoch of gigantic proportion. It is at once historical, emotional, heart wrenching and wise. It's magnitude contains three generations of odyssey, three generations of love and loss, balanced against awakenings which expand awareness. The central odyssey is the story's last generation. In it an old man fulfills his ife's purpose and reflects on how destiny violently directed his life, against his will.
