Publisher Comments:

Featuring footage with Daniel Pinchbeck, Alex Grey, Terence McKenna, Ken Kesey, Erik Davis, and Starhawk, this DVD is an ethnographic documentary film exploring the international "rave" phenomenon not as a party scene but as a reemergence of shamanic ritual. Showcasing the transcendental, spiritual, and communal effects of electronic dance music (EDM) events, Electronic Awakening strips away the common associations of drugs and hedonism, and demonstrates how the culture has evolved over the years into one that is conscious and sacred.

 

In addition to interviewing people whose lives and minds were forever changed by their transcendent, we-are-all-one experiences on the dance floor, director and anthropologist AC Johner ponders the cause of this mind-altering effect and suggests that the repetitive, mathematically perfect rhythms and oscillations of EDM have the power to create a communal "hive mind." Because more and more people are having this experience, he suggests, we could be on the verge of a mass transformation--one that would take us off the path of self-destruction and lead us into a new age of peace and harmony on Earth.
