A mesmerizing film
Oh…….my…….god! This film is absolutely mesmerizing. From the beginning credits, I was totally enthralled the entire time. Felt like I went into a trance a couple of times when Tom Kenyon was vocalizing his healing sounds. The photography was beautiful, the editing superb, the story captivating, the sound amazing. The three friends I attended the movie with were all captivated by it, too. None of us was familiar with Tom Kenyon, so we had no idea what to expect from the movie. All we knew was that he used his voice in his presentations to audiences and that he had a large following. After seeing the movie, I now know why people gravitate toward him. He is a fascinating man. I can’t imagine that there is anyone else on the planet who would stand up in front of an audience and make the sound of whales.
I congratulate the two film makers. They have shown themselves to be masters. I am blown away. The film makers have made a piece of art with grace, charm, and enchantment for the viewer.
Enriching movie on old tradition coming alive again
Hearing Tom Kenyon sing/chant/tone in person is the best, but this film brings that rare privilege to a broader audience. This film gives a generous amount of time to hearing Tom sing accompanied by beautiful visuals. If you let yourself really drop in it can be very moving. I appreciated the background story of Tom’s life and discovery of his singing and the source it comes from. Viewer get to travel the world through his work to Tibet, beautiful places in Europe, and many workshop setting in the United States.
As a person who also does Medicine Singing I found this very heartening to see that Tom has been so successful in delivering his gift to so many receptive people. It was a great reminder to me of my own profound realization that occurred during one of his live workshops.
The part of my brain that edits/critiques as I am watching a film did want it to be a little shorter by the end. Sometimes certain scenes were repeated more than I would have liked, just enough to provoke the thought “Why am I seeing him walking up to this cave again?”
I highly recommend this film if you are even just a little bit interested in how sound can be helpful to people who want to live awake and aware of their full potential.
