Editorial Reviews

One question is the focus of this film: The contemporary luminaries in philosophy and theology were asked, "How does one achieve and maintain peace of mind?" The result is a very personal journey of self-discovery. Featuring Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Don Miguel Ruiz, Michael Bernard Beckwith, the Venerable Tibetan Lama Chodak Gyatso Nupka, Nachum Schiffren, The Surfing Rabbi and more. 90 minutes.

I don't like Sean Mulvihill's "Living Luminaries" movie... I love it!! Why? Because the movie is so well put together that you literally experience the peace and oneness the different spiritual teachers talk about while you are watching the film. In other words, as the film goes along your mind quiets down, and so you not only learn about enlightenment, but get an actual experience of it!

In my opinion, they could not have chosen a better actor to play the role of the seeker. Sean has a presence all his own that is low key, yet undeniably there. Thus, rather than try to dominate each scene, he simply asks the kinds of questions most seekers have, and then gets out of the way and lets those being interviewed answer without interruption. Another bonus is the photography/locations chosen to film the scenes which are just beautiful.

Another nice feature of the movie is that you get to hear from more than dozen different teachers, so you get to hear perspectives on life that you may never have considered before. While many of those interviewed are well known within the spiritual community, Eckhart Tolle is this reviewers favorite (no surprise, since I run an Eckhart Tolle Meetup in Santa Monica, CA). Getting to see Eckhart sitting on a park bench while holding hands with his girlfriend Kim is a real treat as he shares his famous "Power of Now" teachings with Sean. While "The Secret" may be more well known, to me "Living Luminaries" is hands-down the better film. This is because instead of focusing on how to "get things," this film focuses on something much more important: seeing your true nature.

This video is great for someone just getting into these subjects.. Some interesting information. However I was quite disappointed as there was nothing new, nothing I hadn't heard before. Since it is a fairly recent video I expected a lot more. Especially from E.Tolle who was probably the most disappointing.

So if this is all new to you enjoy! If you have spent a lifetime studying, you can find much better sources, such as "I AM", by Tom Shadyak, "The Healing Matrix", which "Seems" like, but is not a continuation of "I AM". These other videos contain a lot of new knowledge and research. Well worth it.

This is a fine film about "the serious business of happiness." It is, essentially, a film about spirituality and an opportunity for luminaries from various walks of life to share their spiritual wisdom and insights to help uplift humanity. What sets this film apart from others of a similar bent is the people who are featured in it. In addition to the well-known names such as Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, and Don Miguel Ruiz, we meet Nachum Schifren--the surfing Rabbi, Geronimo (Pratt) Ji Jaga--a man who spent twenty-seven years in jail for a crime he didn't commit, Reverend Robert Schuller (the Crystal Cathedral), the Venerable Tibetan Lama Chodok Gyatso Nubpa, and many others who bring varied perspectives to the common theme of self-realization and spiritual development.

Rather than just a series of talking heads, the film has some wonderful creative elements that give it interest and variety. There is a loose storyline about a young man who is searching for happiness (the film is subtitled "The Awakening of Sean Mulvihill") and it is through his journey that we meet these various spiritual "experts." I have one criticism that in an effort to create this "plot," I thought the film was a bit choppy visually and a little clunky, particularly in the beginning. Fortunately, this is a minimal design element distraction in what is overall a film worth watching over and again. (A nice touch to bring in Swami Beyondananda to bridge segments of the film and as a little comic relief.)

I'm watching this DVD as I type this review (this is my second time watching)....Are you serious, seriously considering whether to buy this DVD - in short, if you are for real about learning, growing, exploring, being.....INVEST in this DVD.

It is absolutely worth it! It's a journey seen from the eyes of one young man....but this young man represents each and every one of us....on our personal journey to that which we call LIFE.

Buy it, watch it, share it...learn it, be it, do it, have it!

This movie is perfect because it is not about imparting "knowledge" (this would defeat the purpose of the film) but rather instilling a sense of alive-ness, presence while watching it...the seeker in the film is not seeking knowledge, which is an ego-centered reaction, instead he is inquiring for self-discovery (sounds contradictory but it is not for someone who has been studying and listening to these messages for years). Eckhart is perfect because he provides a consistent message of love, stillness, and ego-less presence, which is the essence of life; no more is needed. Just watch the film without judgement, or ego, and it will make sense. In presence.
