An Intimate Discourse with Visionaries of The Great Turning (2021)


Leading visionaries of The Great Turning respond to key questions relevant to the challenges of our times:

  1. What is The Great Turning and what is its significance at this time in our human history?
  2. What is the evolutionary leap of consciousness – the awakening – required of humanity to navigate and actualise The Great Turning?
  3. What are the skills and practices that we, as ordinary citizens, need to cultivate in the face of increasing adversity due to the catastrophic effects of climate change and the threat of mass species extinction, including our own? What can support us to honour our experience of loss and pain for our world in crisis?  
  4. What is your vision of humanity’s future? Are we going to make it as a species?

If, like me, and so many others around the world, you’ve been questioning or concerned about the plight of humanity and the planet, this intimate and candid dialogue will uplift and inspire you to turn from despair to hope; from separation to unity; from fear to love; and from powerlessness to empowerment. 

You may wish to gather with friends and colleagues to watch the video and hold your own engaged dialogue on this timely and relevant topic.

With deepest gratitude to our esteemed panellists for their sage wisdom at a time when we are living through the greatest challenges we have ever faced in our human history, 

Mattie Porte, Findhorn Host & Producer

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 23 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, drop us a line via our contact page.
