Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default Your Top Five

Alright everyone . . . It's time for that proverbial question . . . If you were about to be abducted and your new traveling companions asked you to bring your top five movies with you--perhaps not only your favorite movies, but those that also would help them learn about our crazy species--which would you chose and why?

I will start with my top two . . . can't reveal the whole list yet . . .:

1. The Seventh Seal by Ingmar Bergman: For some reason when I was in graduate school, I got a tattoo of a scene in this movie on my arm--the one where Death is leading a troupe of recently departed spirits across the horizon. They are holding hands and dancing; they are no more less alive than anyone else! And now that my explorations into the meaning of life, life beyond this one, yoga, Buddhism, connection to nature, meditation, etc. have grown as I've aged, I see the deeper meaning of having chosen this image at such a young age.

2. Annie Hall by Woody Allen: This is just such a work of art, how could you not take it with you? The filming technique is exquisite and it perfectly captures the modern neurotic American.

. . . anyone want to play? What are your top 5? . . . or at least top 2 to get the ball rolling here . . . I know it's so hard to chose! . . .

Namaste from the Midwest,
Steph

O.K. Steph, I will start with two also.
First, I love the movie "The Fisher King." It is amazing to watch Jeff Bridges evolve from being a totally depressed wreck, to getting involved with Robin Williams character and having his whole life change. If anyone hasn't seen this, I highly recommend it.
Second, and this may be obvious, but I would have to choose "Terms of Endearment". It still strikes a chord with relationships between mothers and daughters--a very complicated subject. The bond between the two of them feels so real. Still makes me laugh and still makes me cry.
I know I can come up with many more, but would like to see others opinions. Good subject to get us thinking, Steph!
Happy first day of summer to you and everyone here!!!
Love,
Joanne

Oh wow...Terms of Endearment is such a great choice. Have you read the book by Larry McMurtry? Such a great (and surprising since it is not a typical cowboy book) story! And the movie...of course...is fabulos. I grew up in Houston, where it was filmed, went to undergrad school at U. of Houston, very near the area where Aurora Greenway's house was based, and you know that scene where the Nicholson and MacLaine characters have their first date--been there....granted, it was ages ago and when I would still eat things like turtle soup. And a few days ago just as i finished a trial, I quoted a memorable Nicholson line from the scene in that restaurant...hint: it had to do with a bug and needing lots of drinks! ;-)

Great choice, Joanne!!

Namaste and happy summer solstice,
Steph

Hi Steph,
You made me laugh out loud. I know that Nicholson line well--and have used it on occasion!
Thanks!
Love,
Joanne
