5.0 out of 5 stars A travelogue for the soul... May 10, 2009
Perhaps the most insidious drift in our social consciousness during at first the industrial revolution and now the information age has been our growing spiritual estrangement from our own earth. We have elevated rational thought to gain short-term social benefits and shunned our mystical connection with the land we live on. We have paved it with concrete and punched oil wells through its skin to build our economies. Now we have sensed the errors of our ways, but we remain locked in a quest for a rational solution. However, it may well take more than our rational thought to heal the earth from the insults we have visited upon it. We will need both our rationality and our heart sense in this ultimate challenge.

Jan Nickman has created a film, "Living Temples", which searches for our lost spiritual connection with the land. David Lanz and Gary Stroutsos have created a score that pulls from ancient connections and energizes for present. Their film does not dictate nor does it preach. It does not romanticize the past. However, it does remind us on some subliminal level, of what we have come to ignore. It does ask questions of the heart. The questions that it asks are the heart sense questions that we will need to heed as we move towards an uncertain future.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an Amazing experience! A Must Have Video! May 25, 2009
It is a brilliant display of sacred beauty. The simplicity of it is breathtaking. It is powerful in a way that just drew me in totally and I felt a connection in my heart chakra. The question was asked does the S P heal us? No, in my opinion it gives us the space to heal ourselves. What is more powerful than that?

The haunting music is a perfect accompaniment. The simple but elegant photography doesn't detract from the feeling or knowingness of the "message" which you feel rather than hear. It somehow reinforced to me that I am here for a purpose and God gave me eyes to see beauty while I am here. And if the land can exist and flourish, so can I!

I came away with a sense of peace - a calmness turned inward, a knowingness or sense that everything is going to be okay. I love how you tie our atoms together with the past, and perhaps the future as well. There is an implied responsibility there and I feel like we are ready to take it on.

Everything is a part of us, we affect and effect all. I feel mindful, courageous, responsible and peaceful, all at the same time. It is a fabulous journey that you have captured. Thank you!

I grew up in the southwest and have lived and traveled through many of the places shown in the video. It has always been a place of comfort, support and healing energy for me and I have been missing it greatly. Watching this video allowed me to feel like I, too, was touching the beautiful rust colored walls, walking the sandy floor of the desert, exploring the vastness of the hills and curves of the ancient structures. It brought many moments of deep sighs of joy coming up from within me, bringing great peace. The music, the cinematography, the dance, narration and images were so wonderfully woven into the texture of the land that I feel it completely evokes the beauty and transcendent experience of walking on that land.

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-Connecting with Beauty May 21, 2009
I had forgotten how beautiful and powerful these places are. I stood in awe as the incredible scenery changed and the colors of earth and sky filled the screen. This movie is a great tool to help one relax and reconnect with Nature's beauty and healing power.

This video is amazingly beautiful and will put you in a relaxed state of mind. The images are SO colorful and captures the true beauty of certain places here on earth. I was deeply moved and find something new each time I watch it. A "must" see in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come Home to your Soul May 12, 2009
Living Temples- Sacred Land is a visual and auditory masterpiece
that will transport you through the breath-filling beauty that is the
American Southwest. You will be heightened, soothed and inspired by
the amazing and insightful narration that will draw you ever forward on
your own personal journey. The melodic musical cords allow you to
become one with the ever changing land, sky, water and wind as you
are swept onward, exhilarated by the experience of finally coming
home to your soul!
