Talking Story is an award-winning documentary film that blends adventure travel, spiritual growth, and cultural exploration. It is the story of a filmmaker who sets out to chronicle the rituals and wisdom of healers and spiritual teachers of diverse cultures, but whose personal story emerges after a series of surprising events. Shot in various locations (Nepal, Ladakh, China, Vietnam, Peru, and Hawaii), this film transports the viewer into a world of esoteric practices, including a never-before filmed Tibetan Medicine Potentization Ceremony.
