The Bloom Episode 3: New Ways of the Sacred

5.0 ·
5

Part III of The Bloom “New Ways of The Sacred” looks at how Transformational Festivals are venues for an active engagement with ancient, universal themes of MYTHOS, RITUAL and THE SACRED, exploring ways which both honor the traditional, while reflecting our unprecedented realities of the third millennium. 

Watch the Panel Discussion that followed a live online viewing of the film in 2015. 

THE BLOOM SERIES: A JOURNEY THROUGH TRANSFORMATIONAL FESTIVALS

In a world increasingly steeped in crisis, where can we find signs of hope for our collective future? The Bloom, a new 4-part documentary film series, chronicles the global movement emerging through Transformational Festivals, where participants co-create remarkable realities that embrace a life-affirming, evolutionary ethos as a collective response to our contemporary predicaments. 

Travelling with director/host Jeet-Kei Leung, The Bloom captures the most inspirational festivals on the planet and insights from participants at all levels of the experience. In vivid colour, The Bloom reveals a blossoming renaissance, which is changing people’s lives to align with their passion and sense of purpose, while affirming our ultimate connectedness and capacity to create the world we wish to live in. 

The results may be surprising, offering us a glimpse of what can happen when our collective creative potential becomes truly unleashed.

Watch the Panel after viewing.

Films For Action is a community-powered, digital 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 a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Although we started out hosting community film screenings in the beginning and did so for many years, our digital library eventually became our primary focus. 

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated 4,000 articles.

To dive in, click the Explore button to sort content by most viewedtop-rated, or newest first, as well as filter content by languagecountry, content type, and 34 topics such as foodsustainabilityeconomicssolutions or big ideas.

 

“Independent media is dangerous because it allows people to speak for themselves. And when you hear someone speaking from their own experience - whether it's a Palestinian child or an Israeli grandmother or an uncle in Afghanistan or a refugee in the Calais refugee camp - it changes you. It breaks the sound barrier. It challenges the stereotypes and the caricatures that fuel the hate groups. You may not agree with what you hear - I mean, how often do we even agree with our family members? - but you begin to understand where they're coming from. That understanding is the beginning of peace. I really do think that the media can be the greatest force for peace on Earth. Instead, all too often, it is wielded as a weapon of war. We have to take the media back.” - Amy Goodman, Place to B at COP21
