Huston Remembered (1919-2016) (Special Bundle – 25% discount)
Our beloved Huston Smith, who has enriched the lives of countless souls, left us for the Greater Life December 2016 after many years in bed, before the Threshold. On April 1, a memorial service was held at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, celebrating his life of giving to us all. Many will remember Huston from his PBS series with Bill Moyers, or from his books, starting with the Religions of Man. But there were also many friends who learned not just from his inspiring writings, but from his presence as a luminous being.
Huston Smith: WISDOMKEEPER: WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE? Why are we here? Is there a God? Can there be authentic mystical experience? Are Hindus and Buddhists correct that we can attain a state of enlightenment? Can psychedelic drugs give us a glimpse of it? Does religion have a viable place in the modern world? Is there a common core of values and insights among the world’s religions? Huston Smith has spent his career in a search for answers to these and other questions.
Death and Transformation: The Personal Reflections of Huston Smith DVD: This film is about Huston’s dream for the culmination of this life: self-naughting. In answer to “What teachings from the great wisdom traditions sustain you at this very threshold of your own death?” Huston Smith moves one to tears as he describes how to “die before you die” in the world’s religions starting with the ancient Greek tradition of ‘incubation’. His words and luminous presence, embellished by exquisite footage and family photographs, cannot help but deeply touch our hearts.
The Sacred Unconscious DVD: At the height of his extraordinary career, with anecdotes, humor, radiance, and a twinkle in his eye, Huston Smith shares profoundly personal experiences which have changed his life. He answers the basic questions of “who we are” by providing an insightful analysis of the four levels of the unconscious, the most important being the sacred which, he maintains, is linked with God as our “imago Dei” and describes what he considers to be the “deep lying elements” for understanding the healing of mind, body, and soul.
