While I was cutting hubby’s hair a few hours ago, I asked him if he remembered the last time we went to the film festival where our friend’s film was nominated. He couldn’t recall it but he recalled we were given an identification card to vouch that we were guests to the film festival. Surprisingly, I found the id’s kept in a plastic container among expired cards. Now I can say that it was three years ago when we had that rare opportunity to be in a film festival. It was an awesome experience mingling with people working with films. I would love to go to the same event again.
Incidentally, there seems to be a chance for me and for everyone who likes to see films in a film festival. The Sun Valley Spiritual Film Festival on September 18-20 will be showing films we don’t normally see in movie theatres. Since the Sun Valley Spiritual Film Festival is a celebration of human spirituality through films, its mission is to:
- Present films that explore spiritual traditions from around the world, as well as films that cherish the human spirit.
- Encourage the production of new films and documentaries, by providing an event in which these films can be screened.
- Promote discussion among recognized leaders in the fields of arts and spirituality, by presenting interactive discussion panels.
- Offer the public an opportunity to engage with film-makers and spiritual leaders.
- Enhance the public’s understanding of, and respect for, diverse spiritual traditions from around the world.
It will be a glorifying moment meeting the spiritual leaders around the world. You probably know some of them like Jim Walsh, who is going to present his film, “Cracking The Cosmic Egg” on September 20th at 2:00PM. His film is a presentation to an exciting new frontier where science and spirituality combine to improve the human condition. It may not known to you but Jim Walsh brings to HESA (Human Energy Systems Alliance) his extensive knowledge of nutrition and science and his entrepreneurial skills to the unique challenge of unlocking the mysteries of the Human Energy System.
Furthermore, Jim Walsh is considered one of the world’s leading experts on food, and he is widely published and quoted in newspapers, journals, TV and radio. Walsh also serves as Chairman of the Board of Hawaiian Vintage Chocolate since 1992 and Intentional Chocolate since 2007. If you ever want chocolates that help decrease stress and increase energy, help enhace focus and achieve greater calmness, try some intentional chocolate, and for this, I would recommend the Intentional Chocolate Raspberry Hearts.
Jim Walsh serves on the Advisory Boards of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Spirituality and Wellness At The Chicago Theological Seminary and the Center for Creating Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin. He is a member and co-founder of the Badger Angel Capital Network (BACN) assisting the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation and the University of Wisconsin in technology transfer and business start-ups. Walsh’s involvements are dedicated to the single objective of creating products that nourish both body and spirit to improve the quality of life for all beings. As for the Intentional Chocolate, his intention is to reintroduce the ancient of wisdom of embedding conscious intention and love into food.
The film we watched on the film festival then was a documentary film. Jim Walsh’s film, “Cracking The Cosmic Egg” sounds interesting to me. The video shows the kind of films we get to see on the Sun Valley Spiritual Film Festival.
I hope that there is spiritual film festival here too. It is because I like spiritual thing much.

Spiritual films are always my favorite though I like fantasy and action films too.
And the film you talked about has tried to combine science and spiritualism in transforming human civilization….
It’s because Jim Walsh is very professional in his field of work.
