Sept. 12-14, 2014 • JOSHUA TREE, CA
We are thrilled to be the official film crew at the Joshua Tree in California for the first annual Synchronicity Symposium – an “Embodied Ideas Festival” which, alongside visionary leaders in their field including biologist and author, Rupert Sheldrake, writer on ancient civilizations Graham Hancock, sound healer and Family Constellation therapist, Jill Purce and many more, we will be exploring the elegant symmetry between Psyche and Matter; between our inner and outer lives.
At this time in history, we seem to be undergoing a collective passage into an era of conscious realization that psyche and matter are inseparable and that, far from being passive observers, we have a participatory relationship with the unfoldment of the world around us. Now the work ahead is in learning how to move in concert with these rhythms, developing a mastery in weaving between the worlds to come into a greater personal and collective harmony. It’s an honor to be working with such a roster of brilliant outcasts who have made a life out of studying consciousness, sound, somatic and Jungian psychology, quantum physics, synchronicity, and of course DREAMING.
In no particular order we will be featuring:
Graham is the author of the major international bestsellers The Sign and The Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, and Heaven’s Mirror. His books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages. His public lectures, radio and TV appearances, including two major TV series for Channel 4 in the UK and The Learning Channel in the US – Quest For The Lost Civilisation and Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age – have put his ideas before audiences of tens of millions. He has become recognized as an unconventional thinker who raises controversial questions about humanity’s past.

Synchronicities are both gifts and challenges. They can be felt as acts of grace, or the subtle patternings of a cosmic artist, yet they can also suggest an elusive trickster who demands careful discernment both outer and inner. There seem to be stages that individuals go through in their deepening recognition of the synchronistic dimension of life.
The dreamworker is like a psychic midwife. She mediates between the dream and waking life. Her role is to reflect you, hand you back the pieces of yourself without distortion. All tribal traditions have such a person. Though they are found under many different names; shaman, crone, medicine man, witch, healer, analyst or priest; they all perform the same sacred function. It is to guide you towards your true path.
In dreamtime, synchronicity is not a random event. As a primary actuality the intersection between psyche and world call out to the joy and the sorrow of all Being. All creatures, things, and landscapes make their presence known day and night. In a unified field of the anima mundi and through the World’s Dream, living images appear and voice their presence: “Look, here we are. Pay attention.” Their messages are clear and urgent. We are asked to respond.
AND MANY MORE brilliant outcasts!
