Traveling Guru is a feature length documentary, a road trip into the sacred heart of India – land of spirituality and birthplace of most the world’s major religions. It is a pilgrimage of discovery, both an outer and inner journey that plumbs the rich and diverse repositories of India’s ancient and modern sacred cultures.
Produced and directed by Marjonneke Grech, Traveling Guru follows the journey of fifteen North Americans. As they immerse themselves in India’s religious communities, they discover new worlds that both inspire and challenge them.
Their guide and traveling guru is interfaith educator, Dr. Darrol Bryant. He brings people together for what he calls “living encounter,” a post-modern approach that sees direct human communication as a vital first step for peaceful co-existence. The focus is on relationships, understanding and trust – the new capital needed to build a strong interconnected world.
In the emerging clashes between globalism and rising local tensions, Traveling Guru speaks to all cultures and models a startlingly simple road map for the peaceful future of our shared planet through the transformative power of conversation.
