Why would I write an article about the Sedona Film Festival?

SIFF PosterWhat has it got to do with Spirituality??? Well actually everything. The Center for the New Age has been supporting the Festival for twenty years. It’s part of life in Sedona and many of the volunteers are very spiritual.
You may not know but, WHAT THE BLEEP was first presented here. A lot of Hollywood actors come to Sedona regularly to rejuvenate and be inspired. So many Westerns were filmed here. Elvis made movies here. But it’s not just the history, it’s the future.
The more contact we have with the rest of the world, the more we can affect change in consciousness. Hollywood movies are great but their sometimes so far from reality. It’s the independent film makers that are not censored, who make a real difference.
Of course watching an old classic of Tallulah Bankhead and Stefanie Powers last evening didn’t do it for me. but it did show me how far we have come from our old belief systems. What we used to settle for, the way we thought the world worked is no longer true. We can use these films as a look in the mirror and see where we need to change.
We saw a movie Titled THREE MILE LIMIT, which told a true story of how the New Zealand government tried to control the music people could listen to and another Russian film that told of the still archaic practices in orphanages all over Russia. And then you have to ask yourself, does this only happen in Russia or could it be happening here.
Another film is about a Dr. Burzynski who actually cures cancer without chemo and surgery. So there is a lot of valuable information out there that these film makers dare to expose. Sometimes with very low budgets, they still manage to make some of the best movies I have seen in a long time.
So bravo Sedona Film Festival presenters and keep up the good work. It’s not just the New Age movement trying to make our world a more peaceful place, it’s all of us. And if you want a taste of Sedona life, may I suggest MOVING FROM EMPTINESS, The life and art of a Zen Dude. Alok lives here in Sedona and is one of many amazing spiritual teachers.
So join us in Sedona, this year or the next and experience this wonderful Festival that has been compared to nothing short of Cannes. And don’t forget to stop by the Center for the New Age where many of the Actors shop.

About the Center for the New Age

We’ve searched the globe and pulled the most accurate Psychics and Healers and amazing Massage-Therapists from all over the world who have come here to be part of this special community, whose energy makes them even more psychic.
