Have you ever wondered how it would feel to take a “magical mystery tour”? To leave your daily life behind and embark on a journey of self-discovery?
Well, viewers can live through the unique journey that local producer Tamara Peterson experienced when she decided to document her own trip to Tibet and surprised herself in what she discovered. “From the profane to the profound.”
Tamara states as she narrates her magical journey to Tibet, which included a visit to the turning wheel of Dharma, through the pungent smells of Yak butter tea to the East back alley Lhasa Markets. Of course no adventure to Tibet is complete without a visit to the Cave retreat of Guru Rimpoche – other wise known as the Fortress of Solitude.
In asking Edward Hermosa Kramer what’s the difficulty in editing this type of documentary, the Emmy Award winning producer said, “The great mystery was how to turn a life changing, extraordinary experience into a compelling story.
How to get past the classic self -delusion that because it’s the first time I edited with someone else totally shooting footage of his or her own journey. It makes a story that will intrigue for more than 3 minutes. Tamara really allowed herself to share her transformation into a much deeper awareness of herself in the world and in this life, even if it was just momentary and in context. It was quite moving
to see her so strong spiritually as the editing process exposed social and physical vulnerabilities she was becoming acutely aware of during her trip.”
You can get pulled into the mesmerizing sounds and visions that is Tamara’s Sacred Journey to Tibet on Del Mar Television Foundation’s channel 24, airing June 1st at 9 a.m., June 7th at 7:30 p.m. and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. & simultaneously live streaming on your computer.
