Ram Dass: Going Home

Ram Dass is one of the most important cultural figures from the counter-cultural movements of the 1960s and 70s. A pioneer of both the psychedelic and spiritual movements of that era, author of Be Here Now, and an outspoken advocate for death-and-dying awareness, Ram Dass is now himself approaching the end of life.

Since suffering a life-changing stroke twenty years ago, he has been living in his home on Maui and deepening his spiritual practice and teaching as he prepares for his return. It is a practice centered on love and his idea of merging with his surroundings and all living things. The film is shot in a nuanced cinematic style, and is a lyrical meditation on life, death, and the soul’s journey “home”.

The film intimately observes the details of his daily life – his home and stunning natural surroundings, his personal practice and meditations, his regular swims, and an intimate interview on the summary of his life learning and awareness as he prepares for the great mystery.
