Our world is becoming smaller as our cultures around the globe come into contact with one another, and especially as our information technology unearths aspects of some ancient cultures hitherto unknown. This documentary is a very entertaining and informative expose on just how this is taking place surrounding the little known practice of sun-gazing. Are some of these ancient practices of secretive sects able to somehow be integrated into mainstream society in a modern world? This documentary shows several cases where such attempts are being made and how it impacts their everyday lives. If you love observing people and understanding their wide varieties in how they approach life, this film is one that for sure will give you a good sampling of our emerging modern humanity that is revisiting our ancient roots at the same time.
