2012: Time for Change – Psyche & Spirit the New Cutting Edge?

Time for change San Francisco’s Landmark Theatre showed an early screening last night of 2012: Time for Change, which is a new film directed by Emmy Award nominee Joao Amorim. It follows journalist Daniel Pinchbeck’s quest for a new paradigm that integrates the wisdom of tribal cultures with new scientific methods.From the movie, their suggestion is that “as conscious agents of evolution, we can redesign post-industrial society on ecological principles to make a better world, one which works for all of us. 2012 heralds the birth of a regenerative planetary culture where collaboration replaces competition, where exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge.” No grave surprise that this hit San Francisco early.

Below is a teaser from Amorim.

Following the film screening, there was an after party at Sera Phi Lounge on Howard Street, which was facelifted for the event; additional neon lights set the mood for philosophical, tribal and scientific chatter in both a hip and hippie environment. Below, the short video footage will give you an idea of the background design and the music in motion.

My first dialogue was with an astrologer and musician, my second with an anthropologist who develops programs using ‘design thinking’ for Fortune 500 companies, the third with the founder of a Solar start-up and the fourth with a Burning Man enthusiast and horiculturalist. When I told someone I was a ‘rainmaker,’ I was asked how and what methods I used, which quickly led to a discussion on Shamanism. Lesson 101: always know your audience before you choose your language :-).
