Product Description

Based on James Redfield's worldwide best-selling novel, The Celestine Prophecy is a spiritual adventure film chronicling the discovery of ancient scrolls in the rainforests of Peru. The prophecy and its nine key insights predict a worldwide awakening, arising within all religious traditions, that moves humanity toward a deeper experience of spirituality.

The Celestine Prophecy is an action-adventure adaptation of the hit novel by James Redfield, a film that moves so swiftly it can be difficult at times to absorb the New Age philosophy tucked into Redfield's multiple, so-called Insights. Matthew Settle plays an American history teacher who travels to Peru to look into the discovery of an ancient manuscript that foretells the arrival of a new spirituality. The Peruvian government and Catholic church, threatened by something that might supplant traditional religion and mainstream values, harass and arrest the scientists and enlightened souls who discovered the manuscript. Our hero becomes involved in a dangerous effort to keep the document from official hands; along the way, he's introduced to the prophecy's major principles, which arouse his dormant spiritual abilities. Annabeth Gish, Hector Elizondo, and Jurgen Prochnow are a welcome presence in this light and sometimes confusing, if casually engaging work that requires repeat viewings to fully hear its interesting message. --Tom Keogh

Format: DVD
Synopsis: John (Matthew Settle), a recently laid off history teacher from the United States, follows a series of synchronistic events which lead to a remote area in the Peruvian rainforest. Upon arrival he finds romance, adventure and a new way of perceiving reality based on 9 mystical insights that may bring to fruition the next step in mankind's spiritual evolution.

Based on the best selling novel by James Redfield, `The Celestine Prophecy' ('05) is an engaging film with some of the most beautiful scenic cinematography I've seen in quite some time. I was also impressed by the cast which delivers strong, heartfelt performances, doing their utmost best to provide an enjoyable evening of entertainment along with their spiritual message.

Be forewarned, this film is first and foremost an instructional tool for New Age teachings on the nature of spirituality and the method of reconnecting with divine energy. So if you're not sympathetic or open to the message you probably won't stick it out to the end. I recommend you give it a chance, you might learn something.

Format: DVD
"Trying to control isn't the answer. When we find the true `God Experience', the fight over whose religion is best--it fades. There's just one truth." - From the movie

A New York Times best-selling book published in 1993, The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield has sold 14 million copies and has been translated in over 45 languages. Written in novel form, The Celestine Prophecy describes the synchronistic adventures of John Woodson as he travels to Peru to find out more about an ancient prophecy that describes modern life in startling detail--as well as the future evolutionary path of humanity. While there, he meets up with Father Jose, guardian of the scrolls, as well as others who are dedicated to disseminating the transformative nine Insights found in the Celestine Prophecy.

Redfield had wanted to make a movie version of The Celestine Prophecy, but despite offers from several big studios, the timing didn't feel right. In the spirit of the book, which advocates following intuition and gut hunches towards a more aware, purposeful life, Redfield waited--and now the time has come for the film to be birthed into the world.

After seeing the Indigo movie debacle and the mediocre acting in What the Bleep Do We Know!?, I admit that I didn't hold much hope for the movie version of The Celestine Prophecy. However, after watching the film and its special features last night, I was surprised and delighted at the results.

The Celestine Prophecy was one of the first "New Age" books I read while in the process of coming out of organized religion as both an adherent and a minister. It's been years since I read it, but I remembered that the prose was a bit clunky and didactic, but the information on synchronicity, auras, and control dramas were spiritual gold.

Format: DVD
As the owner of a spiritual (new age/metaphysical) store, I found this movie to be very interesting and informative. Upon receiving the movie I watched only the movie portion. One of the psychics at my shop borrowed it and viewed the entire dvd. She watched the interviews and how the movie was produced before watching the movie. Upon returning the dvd she told me that the informative section of the dvd was extremely helpful in understanding the entire movie and enabled her to realize that the actors were not just acting but truely believed and practiced what they are acting out. I rewatched the entire dvd and agree with her assessment.

Another psychic at my shop told me that it "depicts how I see many of my visions." Everyone I know that has seen the movie, and I, agree that the movie accurately portrays the personal Aura (energy field)that surrounds us all. The lesson about the inner energy that we all posses has been withheld from the general population for a few thousand years. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who is curious about their spiritualiy or is dissatisfied or feels incomplete with their current belief system. View this movie with an open mind that all things are possible and when it is over see how you feel.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield started off in book format back around 1992/1993. It was a self-published novel with an action background that dealt with certain insights into spirituality. These insights weren't new, but Mr. Redfield did use an intriguing method for bringing them together and presenting them to the reading public. To sell the book, Mr. Redfield drove all over the United States, getting the small, self-help bookstores to carry his novel. A store that I'd worked at was one of the places that began to carry The Celestine Prophecy. Gradually, through word of mouth, the novel began to sell. Eventually, Warner Books picked up the novel and did some major publicity, and the book became an international bestseller. This was around 1994. Because the book gained such popularity, the big Hollywood studios attempted to purchase the film rights to The Celestine Prophecy, but Mr. Redfield wouldn't sell them. He didn't want to take the chance of Hollywood ruining the movie, plus he wanted to have some control over the situation. What happened is that he waited and waited and waited until he felt the time was right to make the movie. Then, he enlisted the aid of Barnet Bain, who'd produced What Dreams May Come and Somewhere in Time. They got a cast of relatively unknown actors to play many of the central roles with backup from a few strong character actors such as Hector Elizondo (Pretty Woman), Jurgen Prochnow (Body of Evidence) and Joaqum De Almeda (A Clear and Present Danger). The director of the movie was Amando Mastroanni, who is someone that I'm not familiar with. James Redfield and his wife, Salle, assumed the roles of Executive Producer and Producer and Screenwriter. In trying to stay true to his novel and to maintain control of the film, Mr.Read more ›
