This an ancient trailer sequence of Soul Biographies as they used to be, and in many respects still are.
As Yet Untitled
This is unusual. Filmed Fall of 2019. This 30 minutes of footage is pretty much uncut. Insights, admissions and all. It is deeply reflective and revealing of where this work is now to be pointed, and the contrarian nature of life and purpose finding you rather than you heading off to find it.
Through My Eyes
The ability to see through the eyes of another holds the key to empathy, and I mean ‘see’ in its most expansive of definitions. And such empathy exists as a quality that might transform the complexion of everything. This film reveals the experience of a world through the eyes of paranoid schizophrenia.
Imagine your life, or your child’s life following its course and then an abrupt and brutal turn. The sudden onset of Schizophrenia. A violent shock to what was. A loss. At a loss. And a soul rendered desolate and alone.
Recovering the Diamonds
Perhaps with understanding, comes the falling away of judgment. And with the falling away of judgment, comes the ability to see with clarity. And with such an ability to see, comes the opportunity to share a wealth beyond measure.
Size Doesn’t Matter
’Perhaps it’s our superiority that keeps us from our own life. And our capacity for humility that leads us to it.’ A film concerning our capacity to see without judgment.
How to Give a Fishing Lesson
Might the causes of poverty lie deeper than just physical need. And might the way out lie with our ability to see ourselves together, as the same.’ An extraordinary and humbling experience. A film about the often missed nature of poverty.
Beyond the Dark
‘It is like a miracle. I’ve got a son back that I thought I’d lost. We’re probably closer now than we’ve ever been but it did start in a difficult place.’ A film of hope and light from a seemingly dark and endless place.
To Be Kinder
Michael lost his daughter to leukemia. Kelsey had been just 18 years old. These few minutes wonder if we might be a little more courageous, and connected. Whether we might be a little kinder, more gracious and present in the absence of tragedy.
Side By Side
In the complex landscape of Schizophrenia, I imagine Compassionate Care should not be absent. Care that is unconditional. Care that is full of hope and of possibility.
