A must for anyone interested in Eastern spirituality
1 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Unlike other films in this genre, which focus solely on gurus, rinpoches, and other spiritual masters, this documentary takes a broader and more interesting approach. By adding distinctly Western voices -- scientists, psychoanalysts, historians, and even a Catholic theologian -- it brings into focus the ever-more converging paths between the East and the West. Of special interest was is the attention to the emerging role of women as Eastern traditions acquire a Western audience. Most distinctive of all is that rather than focusing, as so many "spiritual" films do, on the avant-garde, "Spiritual Revolution" takes the viewer into previously uncharted terrain by showing how meditation is now being used as a tool in helping groups such as Inner City kids and AIDS patients. Its ultimate message? "Meditation" rather than "Medication."
