modern interpretation of Pre-Christian Teutonic myth, you will find this video
to be very interesting. Mr Denney has integrated his considerable experience in
indo-european and asian mysticism up to the pre-Christian "Norse" myths and created a very powerful modern interpretation for Western based shamanism. In this video, I especially appreciate his interpretation of the nine worlds and how he applies them shamanically to the eight directions. We don't know how the myths were interpreted into shamanic work 2,000 years ago, but I feel confident that our
ancestors would appreciate Mr. Denney's application of them... In any case, I find
this video an excellent introduction to Mr. Denney's work...
Two Spirits interweaves the tragic story of a mother’s loss of her son with a revealing look at a time when the world wasn’t simply divided into male and female and many Native American cultures held places of honor for people of integrated genders.
Fred Martinez was a male-bodied person with a feminine nature, a special gift according to his ancient Navajo culture. But the place where two discriminations meet is a dangerous place to live, and Fred became one of the youngest hate-crime victims in modern history when he was brutally murdered at sixteen. Between tradition and controversy, sex and spirit, and freedom and fear, lives the truth—the bravest choice you can make is to be yourself.
Chinese Shamanic Tiger Qigong
It is really a rare thing to have someone like Master Wu presents a shamanic form of Qigong to a western audience. I have not seen anything else like it--certainly not anything of such high quality production. It is something I know I will spend several years learning and re-learning, hoping someday to achieve mastery.
Dreams of Damanhur
In 2005, filmmaker Keith Busha found himself drawn to Italy to view and film the art of a unique, largely unknown community. He found their extensive and extraordinary art to be only a very small piece of a story that consumed him for years. After many trips and much research, this self-proclaimed, road weary skeptic opened his eyes and mind to the wonders of this enlightened and innovative community.
This film, originally about art, became a multilayered journey into the heart of a new and growing civilization that must be seen to be believed. A society where nothing is impossible and where there are no limits to what can be done.
