I enjoyed watching this documentary
4 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I did not know what to expect from this documentary. Just like many I am in search of the meaning of our being and have been exploring many avenues. I have an open mind about things and do not blindly reject everything that I do not understand, see or feel. I am very skeptical of self-proclaimed gurus though. My only experience with a "guru" was a paid session with a so called "shaman" from Brazil. She is traveling in US, teaching and giving private session. She was recommended by many and has a well designed website. In my opinion she is fake and I just threw away my money away. No one to blame though. Anyway, back to the movie. I shows how easily we believe in what we want to believe, how easily we surrender our own power. Is it unethical to exploit people for a documentary? No more than they are already exploited by other fake gurus. Having said that I would not want to be one of them and appear in the documentary without my contest, even though they all were treated with respect.
