    • 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

    • 32 ARTICLES FROM MAINSTREAM MEDIA ABOUT AYAHUASCA

      Nov 07, 2015 / Seti

      THE PATH OF THE SUN NOVEMBER 2015 UPDATE - 32 ARTICLES FROM MAINSTREAM MEDIA ABOUT AYAHUASCA

      It has been just over one year since the documentary film Ayahuasca Nature's Greatest Gift was released as part of a two-part documentary series on Peruvian Shamanism as part of the project "THE PATH OF THE SUN". 2014 and 2015 have been important years for the sacred plant as so many thousands have traveled to Peru and other countries in the Amazon to meet with shaman and imbibe the healing medicine. Interest in the plant continues to grow quantum fold. Ceremonies are happening all over the world. Shaman are traveling out of the jungle and bringing the medicine to all continents. Many have also trained under shaman and are practicing as healers even in countries where the brew is still illegal. Studies are being conducted. Articles and first hand accounts are circulating throughout the internet. TV shows and more documentaries are being produced and released. In an attempt to keep up with the variety and depth of material I have compiled a list of articles written in mainstream media as a resource for anyone looking for the latest information on ayahuasca. Articles appear from Vanity Fair, BBC, Slate, The Atlantic, LA Times, The Guardian, Elle, Salon, NY Magazine, Miami New Times, Today, Business Insider, Financial Times, New York Times, Washington Post, Fox, Huffington Post and more.....

      FREE Movie Passes

      FREE Movie passes: If you have not yet seen Ayahuasca Nature's Greatest Gift you can sign up here for a FREE movie pass. Movie passes are delivered in the first week of every month. 

      Why is The Path of The Sun Free?

      Income limitations or other limitations on a person's financial situation should not be a reason that prevents someone from seeing a film, especially when the film's content contains information that can help people. The message of the Q'ero and the Andean Tradition as well as the benefits one can receive from the sacred plant medicine Ayahuasca fall into this category. For this reason I have created a special streaming version of both films that make up the documentary series The Path of the Sun.

      I loved the film!  How you can I support and honor The Path of The Sun? 

      If you are in a financial position that would allow you to support this project and if you believe you received a benefit from watching either of the films and you would like to see more projects come to fruition then you can provide that support by purchasing one of the packages that are offered on The Path of The Sun.

      The "Director's Cut" Package is the most popular. In addition to streaming both film's you may download them to your own computer. This package has a lot of goodies and bonus material including: 3 complete movies including Director Cut versions of Q'ero Mystics of Peru and Ayahuasca Nature's Greatest Gift, as a well as a third movie about the Q'ero called Q'ero:In Search of the Last Inca by filmmaker Mo FiniA 100 page hi resolution photo e-book2 complete music CD's including songs by Shimshai and folk songs of the Andean Tradition from Tumi MusicOver five hours of special bonus footage including complete interviews with Dennis McKenna PhD, Stephan Beyer PhD, Author of Masters of the Living Energy Joan Parisi Wilcox, Elizabeth Jenkins author of The Return of the Inka, and Dr. J.E.

      Or, if you prefer to simply make a financial contribution in an amount you set you can select the "Pay What You Want" option and move the slider to appropriate amount. There are many other packages that you can explore at The Path of The Sun

      Thank you for your support!

    • October News: Munay, Yachay & Llankay .....

      Oct 04, 2015 / Seti

      THREE CORE PRINCIPALS OF THE ANDEAN TRADITION

      In the Andean Tradition there are a number of core principals that are easy to understand and embrace. Three of them work together and are related to our core being. They are in "Quechua" the language of the Inca and the Q'ero:

      Munay

      Yachay

      Llankay

      Each word has a particular meaning and they also represent a different part of our physical being as well as our understanding of reality.

      Munay is related to our heart in a physical sense and love as an emotion. However, munay is more than simply a feeling of love as we perceive love in the west. It also embodies a state of consciousness emanating from our heart rather than our heads. It implies that love is a form of wisdom and a choice. We move from a logical state of being to one that is centered on being in right relationship with beings and the cosmos that surround us and interact with us.

      Yachay is related to our head/mind. It is our thoughts, intelligence and wisdom all wrapped up into one. However, the focus is on wisdom rather than logic which is far more valued in the Andes. Yachay is connected to munay and they work in conjunction together which aligns our intellect and choices with our heart centered way of being that work together to form and build wisdom, especially when combined with learning from our life experience.

      Llankay is our body. It is the center and the balance of our being. The manifestation of being in right relationship within our physical center, our heart and head/mind create an environment or space where good can be done. It is a place where all three come together. It is considered "good work".

      When we can live in a state where Munay, Yachay and Llankay work together are actions become a powerful butterfly effect the emanates outward from our inner being to the rest of the cosmos.

      GIVE THE GIFT OF AYNI TO A FRIEND

      Beginning in 2015 a streaming only version of The Path of The Sun is being offered to anyone free of charge. Movie passes can be obtained by signing up to watch the film at either of the two links below.

      http://bit.ly/ayagiftmovie for a free movie pass to Ayahuasca Nature’s Greatest Gift, or 

      http://bit.ly/ayagiftmovie for a free movie pass to Q’ero Mystics of Peru 

      Once a person signs up for a free film a movie pass to stream the documentaries will be delivered via email on the first weekend of the following month. For example, if someone signs up to see a film on October 2nd or 17th or 31st, they will receive a free movie pass to stream the film on the first weekend in November.

      Why is The Path of The Sun Free?

      Income limitations or other limitations on a person's financial situation should not be a reason that prevents someone from seeing a film, especially when the film's content contains information that can help people. The message of the Q'ero and the Andean Tradition as well as the benefits one can receive from the sacred plant medicine Ayahuasca fall into this category. For this reason I have created a special streaming version of both films.

      I loved the film! 

      How you can I support The Path of The Sun?

      If you are in a financial position that would allow you to support this project and you believe you received a benefit from watching the films and you would like to see more film's from me you provide that support by purchasing one of the packages that are offered on The Path of The Sun

      The "Director's Cut" Package is the most popular. In addition to streaming both film's you may download them to your own computer. This package has a lot of goodies and bonus material including:

      • 3 complete movies including Director Cut versions of Q'ero Mystics of Peru and Ayahuasca Nature's Greatest Gift, as a well as a third movie about the Q'ero called Q'ero:In Search of the Last Inca by filmmaker Mo Fini
      • A 100 page hi resolution photo e-book
      • 2 complete music CD's including songs by Shimshai and folk songs of the Andean Tradition from Tumi Music
      • Over five hours of special bonus footage including complete interviews with Dennis McKenna PhD, Stephan Beyer PhD, Author of Masters of the Living Energy Joan Parisi Wilcox, Elizabeth Jenkins author of The Return of the Inka, and Dr. J.E. Williams author of Light of the Andes
      • 12 gorgeous screensavers of Peruvian Shaman and their environment 
      • Field recordings of ayahuasquero Ronald Rivera and Q'ero Pinkillu flute songs by Pampamisayuq Don Augustin
      • Two film trailers 
      • 3 bonus mp3's from Shimshai

      Or, if you prefer to simply make a financial contribution in an amount you set you can select the "Pay What You Want" option and move the slider to appropriate amount.

      There are many other packages that you can explore at The Path of The Sun

    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,
