The second feature in this year’s Tricycle | BuddhaFest Online Film Festival is Alan Swyer’s Spiritual Revolution, an interview bonanza with spiritual leaders, scientists, psychotherapists, and scholars. This means new, original content from many familiar Tricycle faces: Bob Thurman, Jack Kornfield, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, Shinzen Young, and John Makransky, not to mention a host of other spiritually-oriented and fascinating people. Speaking about the convergence of Eastern traditions and Western culture, these people—and their ideas—form the backbone of the spiritual revolution sweeping through the West.

“In a time of change, this film will open many doors,” writes Swyer on the film’s official website. Our Tricycle Talk today will open one more: listen to the man behind the camera talk about his experiences making the movie, and enjoy his infectious laughter, too. Check out the Tricycle Talk and Spiritual Revolution‘s trailer below.
