Spirit Vision

The vision unfolds... Golden leaves drift silently to the ground and many rivers flow to the sea. The cycle of life constantly renews. There is no loss, only a stream of constant change. The Shaman sees the interdependence of all beings on the great wheel of life. Filled with deep peace and compassion, he smiles with inner joy.

Studio notes: This song uses a trance-inducing 12/8-4/4 polyrhythm played on African drums with an E Minor Native-American flute to take us on a journey to a sacred place of visions. Halfway through the song, the music changes to a major key and to acoustic guitar and Incan pan pipes. This conveys the joyful vision and affirmation of life. The images of autumn remind us of the cycle of the seasons and the annual rebirth of the sun.

Thank you for watching.

May all peoples of the Earth walk in Peace.

Filmed when Henry Miller was 81 years old, Henry Miller: Asleep and Awake is an intimate documentary in which the author speaks about writing, sex, spirituality, and New York.

The film opens in Miller's bathroom, a shrine covered with photos and drawings, where Miller graciously points out the highlights of his "gallery."

His voice is raspy as he talks about philosophers, writers, painters, and friends. Mentions Cendrars, Blaise, Virtually the complete works, as an author he admired greatly

The unique and prolific life of a singular American artist are beautifully captured in this film. ~ Cara Saposnik, Rovi
