Who’s Driving the Dreambus? Trailer for feature documentary.

Life is full of big questions:

> Who am I?
> Why am I here?
> Why is there suffering?
>Is there life after death? and – ultimately – the question we all try to find the answer to, >How can I find happiness or peace of mind?

But what if that search for happiness was based on a huge misconception, a misconception that has been drummed into us since birth, that we are separate individuals?

In Who’s Driving the Dreambus? film makers Boris and Claire Jänsch go on a personal journey through a series of interviews with eminent spiritual teachers, philosophers and writers – in a quest to unravel what it means to be alive. This radical and challenging documentary ventures into the heart of the mystery of identity, flipping the idea of spiritual endeavour on its head, revealing a message so profound and yet so simple that it might just end the search.

A feature-length documentary exploring life’s most profound mystery


A radical and deeply challenging new feature-length documentary exploring the most profound question of all, ‘Who am I?’.

Winner of the 2009 Premier Award at the Insight Film Festival in Manchester, England.

Sacred Attention: A Spiritual Practice For Finding God in the Moment ~ Margaret D. McGee

Just One Moment of Close Attention Can Be a Prayer to God

“Does God communicate through the natural world? Through the slug on the compost pile, the leaf on the lawn, the stone tumbled on the beach, the air that feeds my lungs, the dreams that fill my nights? How will I know unless I pay attention?”
–from the Introduction

Close attention to even one grain of creation’s one object, person, routine, image, or word of scripture’can be a prayer to God. On the beach, in the woods, turning the compost pile, or at your desk, you need only slow down and look with your eyes. Offering a prayer of attention to an element of God’s creation opens a channel of communication between you and God. In that moment, deep change can occur.This inspiring guide will help you develop a practice of attention as a way of talking and listening to God.

Framed on the Christian liturgical year together with images of the seasons of earth, each chapter includes a brief narrative that illustrates the surprising richness that can be found in an attention-getting moment. Each narrative is followed by a prayer, suggested scripture readings, and a specific practice to help you develop ways of paying attention as a way of connecting with God.

Through these easy practices, you will experience how one moment of attention can turn into a prayer of power and intimacy. You will discover how learning to simply stop, look and listen can yield moments of healing and transformation. It is a way of experiencing God that you can do any time, anywhere, as part of any activity’ you need only slow down and pay attention.
