Entheogen: Awakening the Divine Within is a feature length documentary which
invites the viewer to rediscover an enchanted cosmos in the modern world by
awakening to the divine within.
The film examines the re-emergence of archaic techniques of ecstacy in the
modern world by weaving a synthesis of ecological and evolutionary
awareness,electronic dance culture, and the current pharmacological
re-evaluation of entheogenic compounds. Within a narrative framework that
imagines consciousness itself to be evolving, Entheogen documents the
emergence of techno-shamanism in the post-modern world that frames the
following questions: How can a renewal of ancient initiatory rites of
passage alleviate our ecological crisis? What do trance dancing and
festivals celebrating unbridled artistic expression speak to in our
collective psyche? How do we re-invent ourselves in a disenchanted world
from which God has long ago withdrawn? Entheogen invites the viewer to
consider that the answers to these questions lie within the consciousness of
each and every human being, and are accessible if only we give ourselves
permission to awaken to the divine within.
Stan Grof, Marilyn Schlitz, Ralph Metzner, Alex Grey, Terrence McKenna, John
Markoff, Daniel Pinchbeck, and Kat Harrison among others, postulate how the
disenchantment of the modern world may be remedied by summoning the courage
to take the next leap in the evolution of planetary consciousness.
