The 1960s and 1970s were times of great social and political upheaval. Many teachers and Gurus from the East were called to the West to present their approaches to theology and share their traditions of meditation, Yoga, and spiritual understanding. What resulted was an awakening and interfaith movement that has rocked the culture to this day. “Sunseed,” one of the first films to document this movement was revolutionary when it played in theaters in 1973. Now, the original filmmakers have revived the film (that had gone out of circulation) and updated it, interspersing footage from the original film with new footage tracking the movement that defined the Woodstock generation. This is the trailer from the new film.
Swami Satchidananda, Integral Yoga founder, was one of the spiritual teachers profiled in the original “Sunseed” film in 1973. This video segment below is one that was featured in the original, and is now in “Sunseed, The Journey.” This new documentary is now available for streaming and on DVD.
