THE PORTAL - A FILM TO HEAL OUR TRAUMAS AND MOVE HUMANITY FORWARD
Our world is in crisis. People are stressed and confused. Humanity is at a crossroads. Many of us are being impacted by anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, to the extent that it is becoming a crisis in the world of immense proportions.
THE PORTAL film explores the source of this crisis, how this is shaping our future and how we can find a positive solution. Within each of us, we have the capability to bring ourselves and our species back from the brink.
THE PORTAL opens hearts and minds to an exciting vision for humanity transformed. This is an experiential documentary created as part of a bold, global vision to overcome the chronic levels of anxiety, depression, PTSD and trauma that we are facing today.
This film speaks to the need of the time. It brings to life the stories of six people who overcame great adversity using stillness and mindfulness, inspiring the audience to follow in their footsteps and realise the unique potential that all humans have to change our world – by redefining the way we approach our inner and outer worlds.
Supported by insights from three of the world’s foremost futurists and philosophers –and an empathetic robot – the film unfolds as a beautiful, audio-visual spectacle that takes the viewer on their own mindfulness journey through the pain, joy and memory fragments of life.
Internal consciousness helps strengthen international consciousness. Human-made problems require human-made solutions, which are within our reach … if we learn how to stretch our minds.
We’re increasingly conscious of multiple global threats to survival and wellbeing: the climate crisis, extinction events, mass distraction, and the collapse of institutions which can no longer serve us. But how can we attain the mental altitude required to navigate these challenges?
Exploring a new way forward, this powerful film will change lives for the better by bringing peace and calm to a very stressed world. It will open hearts and minds to an exciting vision for humanity, transformed, inviting all 7 billion people to make an enlightened planet possible by entering the Portal.
CHANGE IS COMING...AND IT IS UP TO US TO SHAPE IT!
This is a mesmerising spiral into the heart film you don't want to miss. Will you join the movement and be part of this global shift?
