    • LOOKING FORWARD

      Apr 09, 2016 / Seti

      Rambling thoughts about life and The Path of the Sun...

      Almost 200 years Ago Alfred Agate painted this image (now in the Public Domain) of a Peruvian man looking towards the sacred Apus of the Andes. What then, did this man think about what was in front of him? Did he see the path forward as a beautiful journey? Were the mountains and cold to be obstacles in his way? Did he think about himself and his place in the universe, where he came from, why, or did he just turn around and head back in the direction he had come from. To me this painting is a beautiful portrayal of the future for all of us. Some see the future as an obstacle or difficult challenge. A mountain to be crossed. Others see the path as a journey into the unknown. Others cannot face it and turn and run. When I cannot decide about what is in store for the future I think of the Q'ero and their plight that they found as part of their daily lives for hundreds of years as indentured servants to the hacendero landowners of Peru. They were cruel. They lived lives of plenty but gave little to the Q'ero except for land at 14,000 feet where they could barely survive. The Q'ero persisted and survived despite the harsh conditions and obstacles they faced. They looked out of their stone huts and saw scenes very similar to that of this man on the horse. They did not turn and run from the obstacles that they faced. Cold, rain, poor growing conditions, little animals to herd and cruel treatment from the landowner. They did not turn back, why? They could not as they had to stay as they were owned by the landowner. Instead they looked upon the beauty of the land, they talked to the mountain spirits, the Apus. The appreciated the beauty and the fruitfulness of mother earth or as they call her pachamama. They performed ceremonies and rituals in the form of offerings. Centuries passed and the words were heard. They received their freedom and while they still struggle with health and poverty issues their lives for the most part have improved. To me they looked towards the mountains as a beautiful journey, A difficult journey, but one filled with beauty. In our daily lives we are faced with many challenges. If we see them as insurmountable, if we turn and run, we will not be there for when it changes. I like to model my thoughts on the Q'ero experience. Be consistent in belief, see the beauty in the challenge and the journey and value the virtue of patience, over time we are guranteed change. Change always brings opportunity, and opportunity eventually leads to abundance. So look to the mountain as it if it is a beautiful journey of discovery and opportunity. If every challenge looked as beautiful as this one, I'd get on the horse everyday and ride forward, cross the river and summit the peaks.

    • MOVIE PASS UPDATE AND NEW 2 HR SPECIAL EDITIONS

      Apr 05, 2016 / Seti

      First, let me thank everyone for enthusiastically embracing my films. As you know each month I give away movie passes of a streaming only version of each film in order to encourage a wider distribution of the film and make it available to everyone regardless of income. This month there is a glitch in the system as my distributor VHX has changed its policy on the total number of free copies that can be sent out in a month period and the number of requests this month has exceeded that amount. Not to worry though, VHX has worked out a fair accommodation and everyone who signed up for a free movie pass will receive one. Some of you may receive a coupon and others a direct link, but those are details that I have to worry about. The bottom line is that the movie passes will be delayed until this weekend. I will have them sent by Sunday and I appreciate your patience.

      In other news, I have decided to recut both films and produce two (2) hr. versions each of Ayahuasca Nature's Greatest Gift and Q'ero Mystics of Peru. If you have purchased a Director's Cut package or the Cosmovision package you will be gifted access to both films for download. For anyone else who purchased the films either individually or in other packages not mentioned above you will be offered a 25% discount price for the new films. The new version of Ayahuasca Nature's Greatest Gift will be available in August of 2016, and Q'ero Mystics of Peru by the end of the year.

    • Announcing A New Hosted Web Series For the Conscious Community

      Jan 24, 2016 / Seti

      Dear Fans of The Path of the Sun,

      In 2011 I set off for Peru on a journey that continues today. I spent two years in that magical country and learned a lot about myself. In essence that journey, my journey is one of discovery and exploration of the human condition. In Peru, Nevada City, CA, Malibu/LA, Phoenix and for many years in my beloved Chicago I was and am part of a "community experience." In Chicago it started in the underground art and music scene, in Peru the many foreigners who came through the jungles and mountains united around shamanistic and spiritual practices, in LA it was film, Nevada City - medicinal plant growers, and now in Phoenix there is a plethora of individuals building healthy communities around sustainability and healing practices. The common thread between these communities is a sense or desire to build something better, To create pods or hubs or nodes of forward thinking people who strive to find practices, beliefs and ways of living that are better for humanity as a whole. There is an electricity in the air. A buzz and it is growing. Yet, what I have seen is that while the movement is growing it is amorphous, hard to find, define and connect. It takes a while to find out who is who and what is what and where is where and how is how. It's taken me over a year to connect with this community in Phoenix, and it is different than the communities where I have lived over the course of my journey. Different areas have different focus, but the common thread of making the world a better place remains. There is a lot of experimentation, like The Community Reserve in Phoenix a barter system that is not based on profit, but building community in a conscious way to effect positive goods and services transactions outside of normal channels. There is also NeoTribal a healthy festival that unites Native American ceremonial practices with art, music and film, the Desert Canvas' Rebirth Festival where I participated in a drum circle with 50 people and yoga in the park with more than 100, I have also befriended the members of the band Clan-Destine who bring together rock sounds with messages of healing in their lyrics. It's an exciting time to be a part of this "conscious community," but as I mentioned earlier it took a while to plug in and connections between the communities I have lived in are not apparent. There isn't a directory or website or other means than word of mouth, Google, Meetup and other apps, but it still takes a while to connect.

      So, I want to do something to change that. I want to bring these communities together, to connect them and expand their reach, first locally than on a global scale. And, there is a big idea. Let me give you some background first. Last year in March I started taking Djembe lessons from an amazing instructor named Daniel Hirtz, who if you can believe it is a "7 fingered" tabla maestro. He is quite humble and says he is not as good as the maestro's from India, but he is quite an amazing tabla and Djembe player. I have been to many drum circles now and I can say when Daniel starts to play the beats are taken to another level. In my travels with the Q'ero in Peru, and experiences with the sacred plant Ayahuasca I learned that we are all made of energy, everything in the universe is energy and consciousness is energy with awareness. It is life. This energy moves by vibration and drumming is the earliest form of man made vibration. 100's of thousands of years ago man communicated by the drum and the drum kept man in synch with each other and the universe. Drumming is a uniting force through its vibration. This vibration builds community. When you hear a drum it calls you and you go to it. In drum circles I am amazed at how many people come to watch and dance. To make a long story short and bring this discussion back to its purpose, Daniel and I have joined forces and developed a concept for an episodic series about uniting and connecting the conscious community movement. 

      The show can be described as something like "Anthony Bourdain meets the conscious community" I will be writing, producing, filming and editing, and Daniel will be the host. Daniel brings a lot to the table as he is a philosopher and student of consciousness. Daniel's wife Ingrid, along with Daniel's assistance developed and runs Community Cuisine an amazing food service that is community oriented. They create and prepare healthy, organic, vegetarian and vegan meals and provide them weekly in recyclable containers. They are perfect meals for busy people who don't always have the time to cook healthy. The prices are reasonable too. And, every Monday night Ingrid hosts a community dinner that is based on the "Pay As You Can" model. It's up to you.

      To bring this update to a close, I wanted to ask for your help. I have used the term "Conscious Community" several times in this update. The question to me is "What exactly is the conscious community and how is it defined? Surprisingly there is no wiki on the topic and a Google search brings up little. I have asked people what they think it is and what they say is all over the place. So for the purposes of the show I need your help in defining the term. In this way you, the fans of The Path of the Sun, or The Path of the Sun community gets to participate in helping to create a show that I know you will all love. Everyone we mention it to has eyes that go wide. There are so many topics from sustainable living, to specialty healers, and community activities out there that the idea is a natural and we want to bring it to you on your phone or your laptop or other video display anywhere you are and everywhere you go so you can connect with what you love.

      Contest - Win a free Director's Cut Package valued at $55 (5 winners)

      What I am requesting is that you send me a short paragraph (no more than 5-10 sentences) description of what you think the conscious community is, how it is defined and its benefits to individuals and society as whole. In a month or so after they are read, we will select the top 5. Those five individuals will get a free Director's Cut package of the Path of the Sun, and their name will appear in the credit role of the show. You may message me on Facebook or send an email to sgershberg at gmail dot com

      Thanks for reading and being a part of my community! I'm really looking forward to bringing you this new web series, which is a natural next step from the films in The Path of the Sun!

      Much Love,

      Seti Gershberg

    • THE PATH OF THE SUN UPDATE FOR DECEMBER 2015

      Dec 06, 2015 / Seti

      This holiday season consider giving a gift of ayni to the Q'ero. For your financial support you can receive an ayni gift worth $55 in exchange for your assistance in protecting a valuable source of income and nutrition for the Q'ero..

      The problem:

      Climate change has led to an increase in snowfall and a drop in temperatures during the winter months in Q'eros. This extreme weather is killing an alarming amount of alpaca. The Q'ero rely on alpaca for their wool. Alpaca wool is used for making clothing, blankets, hats, bags and rope in Q'eros. Alpaca wool and textiles are also sold to earn income and the animals are used for a primary food source. Since 2011 over 500,000 animals have died in Q'eros and other andean communities. One day a couple years ago 20% of the alpaca herd in q'eros was wiped out by a single storm.

      The Solution:

      The Heartwalk Foundation is building barns for the animals. They cost about $1,000 each. For each $55 purchase of the Director's Cut Deluxe Package The Path of the Sun will donate $25 to The Heart Walk Foundation. Each $25 contribution saves one alpaca. We want to save 100. For your support you will receive two complete Director's Cut Deluxe Packages valued at $110 that include three movies, two music CD's, hours of bonus footage and interviews, field recordings and a 100+ page 4k digital ebook of photography from Q'eros. You may gift one of the packages or both. Simply go to SAVE THE ALPACA to make your contribution. After the contribution is completed you will receive an email within 24 hours that includes a gift coupon for the Director's Cut Deluxe Package.

      Thank you for our generous support of the Q'ero.

      Munay,

      Seti Gershberg

    About

    The Path of the Sun is a way of life based on the concept of ayni (the act of giving through sacred reciprocal energy exchanges) and other core principals of a mystical practice and belief system from the Andes called the Andean Cosmology. The Path of the Sun also embodies the idea that personal healing, growth and knowledge can be gained through the use of sacred plants.

    In 2011 I traveled to Peru to work with and learn from the indigenous mountain mystics from Q’eros and the jungle shaman called Ayahuasquero’s. I lived in Peru for two years documenting the practices of the Q’ero and these jungle medicine men and women.

    The culmination of this three year project and living experience and over nine months of editing are the two documentary films: Q’ero Mystics of Peru and Ayahuasca Nature’s Greatest Gift.

    This website is designed so that everyone can experience both films no matter your income level or financial position. In the spirit of Ayni a sacred form of reciprocity practiced in the Andes I have created a “Pay what you can” model starting at just $0.99 and if that is too much, simply email me at sgershberg at gmail dot com and I will give you access to the movies at no cost.

    That being said to make a series of documentaries is no easy task even in an age where technology is abundant and fairly inexpensive. It is important that there is a bond between filmmakers and fans so that the process of making movies can continue and more films can be produced. On that note my request is simple and that is if you like the films that you see, and are in a financial position to support independent film and filmmakers, please consider a purchase of the Director’s Cut special package which is jam packed with movies, music, bonus footage and more or one of the other packages found on the site. In this manner I can continue to produce new works for you to learn from and enjoy.

    Peace, Munay (love) and Light,
