The Future is Now, The Odyssey II
A Film by Sharron Rose

According to the Mayan long count calendar, the year 2012 is the year in which a cataclysmic change will occur on our earth, and the “luminous ones” will return and bring us into a new age. The author shares with us her quest to understand the ancient prophesies concerning the year 2012, as well as the concept of the future reaching back to help inform and guide us into a synchronicity of all things.

While we join the author and the indigenous people and Shamans in Peru in a ritual to identify and release negative energies, we hear interview portions from many of the world’s experts on mythology, alchemy, astrology, anthropology and ancient history; Jose Arguelles, Gregg Braden, Riane Eisler, William Henry, Jean Houston, John Major Jenkins, Rick Levine, Dennis McKenna, Terence McKenna, Daniel Pinchbeck, Geoff Stray, Whitley Strieber, Alberto Villoldo and Jay Weidner.

Topics discussed include astronomic data about the year 2012 that is not scientifically disproved, sacred science versus cosmology, the loss of the hearth to the television set, as well as the paradigm shift of the ages and galactic alignment. There is also a discussion of ancient as well as modern freemasonry and the connection between the indigenous people of America and our early government structure.

The message here is — if we continue on the path we are on, in the conspiracy of mediocrity that is prevalent today, the core that holds our species will stop. In the alternative, there is a tremendous message of hope, since our everyday lives bring us every opportunity to determine whether we will grow or end as a species.

A Journey into Your Consciousness
A Film by Fred Alan Wolf, Don Miguel Ruiz and Edgar Mitchell

Who are we and how did we get here? Can our origins and our destiny best be explained from a scientific, traditional or spiritual standpoint? What happens to our consciousness before and after death? This film covers theoretical, religious, mystical and scientific thought with discussions on theories and thoughts that are interrelated, such as science versus religion, our soul as energy, alternate/parallel realities and how energy exists outside of time and space.

Discussions from interviews intertwine as theories and possibilities are discussed about learning from past lives and how regression therapy might work. Several of the interviewees, who have been hypnotically regressed, give us examples of what they learned and how it helped them in their current lives. We are also asked to consider, if we believe in reincarnation, the state in which we leave our planet, in preparation for our ultimate return.

This DVD features interview portions from Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Linda R. Backman, Ed.D, Laurie Monroe, Linda Gabriel and F. Holmes Atwater. The film is thought provoking and intriguing and brings us to peace with issues of death and immortality; however, it also allows us to ponder our life and world perceptions in an even deeper manner.

This DVD is distributed by WireWerks Films and available at www.SpiritSpaceMovie.com.
