Description

'The Vision Within' tells the story of a group of college students who travel deep into the heart of the Amazon rainforest to meet an ancient ‘dream culture’ living today in much the same way that they have lived for thousands of years. As they return home from their journey they must find ways to integrate their profound experiences into meaningful, engaged lives in service of their own inner visions and the future of our planet. The film is an exploration of the critical role that our inner visions can play in our lives, in education, and in awakening a socially just, environmentally sustainable future.
