A Pilgrimage

on 2 DVDs


… for the next 7 generations

The following films – QUOVADIS?MENSCH – have been created as an answer to the global financial crisis in 2008 with the overall question: “Where does humanity want to go in future concerning the challenges of our time?”. The gab between rich and poor is growing. Whole nations go bankrupt. What could we do as human beings? We are at the treshold into a new age of being human on planet earth. Sustainability is a major topic. What do we as human beings really need? I went on a pilgrimage with a campervan through Europe and on the journey the two documentaries “Follow the rainbow to Findhorn” and “One Wisdom” were being born. In both movies I digest my experiences of leaving society behind to consider a deeper wisdom in human nature and finding alternative ways of living together in community and with nature waiting to be explored.

There is hope if we connect with our individual potential and set of for the “new land”. There is a longing in me and so I feel drawn to an island where heaven and earth are very close to each other …

From humble beginnings to one of the world’s first eco-villages, the Findhorn Foundation and Community in the North of Scotland is home to over 400 people of all ages and backgrounds.

This documentary follows some of them as they share their personal experiences of daily living and working together, their passion for community, their visions and dreams for the future.

This is a place with no hidden agenda, where value is placed on inspired action through deep inner listening to the wisdom inherent in each human being. Take a closer look – discover the real meaning of sustainable living and find out what happens when a group of people come together with a shared vision for the future. Be inspired by the magic of Findhorn and the lives of those who dare to ground their dreams in reality.
