The Beauty of Being with music, words, and images.

WisdomFilms, founded and created by Gary Malkiin, is a new genre in contemplative, life-enhancing media that offer a refreshing way to reduce stress and restore balance to our mind, heart, and soul. The short films can help to create sacred space within and without, providing personal sanctuaries of profound beauty and peace through state-of-the-art nature photography.

Michael Stillwater is a songwriter and healing music artist. His pioneering work providing intuitive songs facing end-of-life issues directly led to the co-creation of the ground-breaking resource Graceful Passages: A Companion for Living and Dying, that invites us to listen to the depths of our being, in sickness or health. This is a true liturgy of soul, a blessing for the caregivers, companions and family of those in transition. The beauty of music, word and spirit brings us to the world of Grace.

The Soul of the Bone / A Alma do Osso (2004)

Director: Cao Guimarães
Producer: Beto Magalhães
Genre: Documentary / Experimental
Country: Brazil
Language: Portuguese / PT / ES / EN subtitles

Loneliness and the relationship between man and nature.

A alma do osso is an experimental documentary about  Domingos Albino Ferreira (also known as Dominguinhos da Pedra), a 71-year-old man who has lived alone for 41 years in caves in the countryside region of Itambé do Mato Dentro, Minas Gerais (Brazil). He survives on a meagre pension from the Brazilian government.

It starts with an epigraph by Guimarães Rosa: ‘Loneliness is too much for ourselves’. There are no dialogues or interviews in this documentary, and almost no speech. Practically all the information we receive comes from the images and sounds that characterize the countryside: beautiful landscapes of green hills and the sea, the man’s cave and the sounds of nature.

We who solve mystery, become mystery.

AYA: Awakenings is a documentary journey into the world and visions of Amazonian shamanism, adapted from the cult book ‘Aya: a Shamanic Odyssey’ by Rak Razam. As Razam sets out to document the booming business of Amazonian shamanism in the 21st century, he quickly finds himself caught up in a culture clash between the old world and the new. Braving a gringo trail of the soul, he uncovers a movement of ‘spiritual tourists’ coming from the West for a direct experience of the multidimensional reality shamanism connects one to.

Mind Revealing

Life lived in the absence of the psychedelic experience is life trivialized,
life denied, life enslaved to the ego.

Director: Michael Armstrong
Producer: Michael Armstrong
Genre: Documentary / Experimental
Country: United States
Language: English

A personal reservoir of experience unique to each individual.

The Cosmic Giggle is an experimental documentary film that explores the human energy field’s dynamic relationship with our environment. Naturally as human beings, we are connected to a vast network of fluid information inherent to the world around us. When we are children, we are open to this field through simple innocent observance, but because of our collective evolution towards a dominating and fixated worldview, this perception becomes veiled. This film reveals how this process takes place and provides keys for returning to a more primal and authentic experience of our reality.
