Fire on the Mountain: A Gathering of Shamans
A documentary about the connection between consciousness and nature, as embodied in the spiritual traditions of Indigenous Peoples, whose ecological metaphors of the sacred are so relevant to the modern world. Done in 1997 at an historic 10-day gathering of shamans from 5 continents, who travelled to Karma Ling, a Tibetan Buddhist retreat centre in the French Alps, to discuss their concerns with H.H. the Dalai Lama and high-level representatives of the world's religions. This documentary embodies the wish of these Indigenous People - all traditional wisdom-keepers, shamans and medicine-women - who requested us to communicate their message to the world.
