Tricycle Talk with Alan Swyer, Director of Spiritual Revolution

The second feature in this year's Tricycle | BuddhaFest Online Film Festival is Alan Swyer's Spiritual Revolution, an interview bonanza with spiritual leaders, scientists, psychotherapists, and scholars. This means new, original content from many familiar Tricycle faces: Bob Thurman, Jack Kornfield, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, Shinzen Young, and John Makransky, not to mention a host of other spiritually-oriented and fascinating people. Speaking about the convergence of Eastern traditions and Western culture, these people—and their ideas—form the backbone of the spiritual revolution sweeping through the West.

"In a time of change, this film will open many doors," writes Swyer on the film's official website. Our Tricycle Talk today will open one more: listen to the man behind the camera talk about his experiences making the movie, and enjoy his infectious laughter, too. Check out the Tricycle Talk and Spiritual Revolution's trailer below.

Unfortunately, we were only allowed to screen this film for 3 weeks and the run is over. You can still watch When the Iron Bird Flies, Ram Dass: Fierce Grace, and Blessings.

A convergence of Eastern traditions and Western culture is dependent on an accompanying partnership between Northern technology and Southern agrarianism. Then the revolution will be more whole.
