Two films about a mystical pilgrimage
into a new way of being human
at the next stage of evolution
QUOVADIS?MENSCH – is the attempt to express an answer to the global financial crisis in 2008 with the overall question: “Where does humanity want to go in future concerning the challenges of our time?”. The gab between rich and poor is growing. Whole nations go bankrupt. We still go to war. We are judging and hating. What has to change to become really human and how can we tap into our potential instead of old habbits? We are definitely at the treshold into a new age of being human on planet earth.
… for the next 7 generations
To find out where we as a collective and I as an individual were heading towards I went on a pilgrimage. With a campervan I drove through Europe filming nature and asking most famous speakers about the situation of our planet and about ways to evolve in future. This journey took me into no men’s land and pushed me beyond my own beliefs and beyond my wildest dreams. Two documentaries “Follow the rainbow to Findhorn” and “One Wisdom” were born. They gave me the precious chance to digest my experiences of leaving society behind for the moment and to consider a deeper wisdom in human nature. It also brought me in touch with different, alternative ways of living together in community.
I had no clue that every step on the journey would lead me deeper into a conscious state of looking at the world from a new perspective questioning myself at the same time. It was the beginnging of a major step in my life to leave the well working middle class of my life behind and to go on an adventure to reach out for the depths of life itself. Foolish as I was I did my first baby steps towards the vast ocean of the I AM that literally surrounds us in every moment.

A pilgrimage into nowhere … in a campervan I drive through Europe. There is no destination – only the wish to find answers on burning questions of our time like: What to do with the global finance crisis? What to do if human values are lacking? What do we really need? The result of our development of the past decades is: “We’ve been downgraded from citizens to consumers.”
Mahatma Gandhi said: “Be the change you want to see in the world.” In every crisis there’s an opportunity for change. There is hope if we connect with our individual potential and set of for the “new land”. There is a longing in me and so I feel drawn to an island where heaven and earth are very close to each other …
I meet Angaangaq, Grandmother Maria Alice Campos-Freire, Isaac Shapiro, Malcolm King, Manitonquat, Michael Stillwater, Neale Donald Walsch, Peter Tyler, Ray Simpson, Sara Annon, Soeren Hauge, Thomas Hübl and Thomas Warrior. Yet I feel:
WE’RE THE ONES WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR.
