Flipside the Film now in Torrent!

This is funny.  My documentary and book have been uploaded to Pirate Bay and other torrent venues so anyone can view them for free.  This is both amusing and annoying.
What happens to folks who download torrents illegally

As anyone can tell you, working independently on a film or a book is a labor of love.  And certainly I feel the information in both of these are worthy of examination.  It's hard to complain - who the hell wants to upload a 90 minute documentary on reincarnation?  Or why we choose to be on the planet?

On one hand, the research behind it suggests that we choose our lives, and we choose who we're going to be on the planet, and we act accordingly.  So if we're a person who thinks its ok to download people's work for free, we're the same folks who don't mind lifting or pilfering other items on the planet.

But "Flipside?"  It's $2 on amazon to view, and the kindle is $10.  They both represent five years of my life - not to mention all the people who agreed to let me film them while they're under hypnosis.  Pretty shocking for them to agree to that in the first place, but then there's the physical act of putting the film and book together.  On the other hand, the motivation behind the project is to get people to examine that we do choose to be on the planet, we do reincarnate consciously, and therefore, it makes sense for us to keep the planet a safer place - clean water and air, if not for our children, but for our own return.

Oh well - it's one of those conundrums of modern life.  Enjoy the film and book you downloading fiends!  But if it rings true to you, please go to the donate donut to the right of this post, and make a donation, whatever you can - my family will appreciate it.

Journey Into Tibet

I spent a few weeks with Robert Thurman in Tibet, documenting his journey there. There are clips avail on youtube, but here is the complete documentary "Journey Into Tibet."
