A 30 minute interview regarding the making of the documentary ‘In The Beginning There Was Light” by Austrian film critic Peter Straubinger who Jasmuheen interviews in Vienna in October 2013. His purpose in making the film, his learning around it, dealing with skeptics and much more.
Figures now abound on the internet regarding the rising cost of obesity, resource misuse and over consumption, especially on global health and our environment, plus the global obesity epidemic itself that now touches every country in some way. Independent of the fact that a child still dies every 2 seconds from malnourishment, according to the World Health Organization worldwide obesity has nearly doubled since 1980. In 2008, more than 1.4 billion adults were overweight as well as 40 million children under the age of five and 65% of the world’s population live in countries where overweight and obesity kill more people than being underweight. The question now stands … is there another way to feed the growing population of our world? Is there another nutritional resource that we can all access that improves our health and lessens our carbon footprint by using global resources more conservatively? Have the yogi’s of India, the Jain’s, the Bigu Qigong Masters and other traditions that are more metaphysically inclined discovered an alternate way of being physically nourished? According to research at the Embassy of Peace and those interviewed in the controversial documentary “In The Beginning There was Light”, the answer is yes.
