About Awaken the World

Thank you for checking out our Patreon page! We'd like to tell you a bit about why we’ve decided to go the route of patronage for helping fund our films.

I (Daniel Schmidt) started creating films in 2009. I'd been running a small business for several years, and at the same time exploring an ever-deepening meditation practice. The impulse to begin working on the films was born out of my own inner journey and experiences in meditation.  The 1st film series took three years for me to complete and reached over 30 million people in over 30 languages, winning about a dozen awards internationally. In 2013 I sold his business in order to dedicate myself full time to the Awaken the World Initiative.

Tanya Mahar joined the Awaken the World team in 2016, and in 2017 we released the Samadhi Part One film, as well as a 4 part - 4 hour guided meditation series. Samadhi Part Two was released in 2018, and since then we've been working full time on multiple media projects. In 2019 we began offering free weekly drop-in guided meditations online, and in 2020 began hosting two daily online meditations as our global community of meditators began to grow.

Tanya and I perform most roles at ATW, including writing, video production, editing and administration, and in addition to this I'm also the main animator, composer and narrator - even providing tech support on all projects. Alex was welcomed to the ATW team in 2019 and offers web support as well as assistance with the very large job of managing translations.

We've received contributions of art and music by many amazing artists who resonate with our work. Being independent film makers is great in that we get to honor and preserve our vision, but also means our manpower is quite limited. It’s imperative to us that the films and other media are made available for free, which means they have generated minimal income. This is where we thought Patreon could work beautifully; a venue to connect with supporters who can help us keep production of these films flowing.  Creating custom footage, music and animations are a wonderful component to our projects but are incredibly time consuming. More budget means higher quality productions. Some of our major expenses include: translations, narration, web hosting, equipment upgrades, stock shots, and third party labor. As of 2020, there are several projects on the go, including Samadhi Part 3, a Virtual Retreat experience, and a film about how working with entheogens may support and/or accelerate our practice. We also have a plan to create an animated film about meditation geared towards children in future years!

All of the Patreon rewards are the same, regardless of the size of donation. As an ongoing gift, the recordings of our one hour guided zoom meditations are available exclusively to our Patreon supporters. We also share original music tracks, writings, fractal art and occasional discounts on our merchandise as thank you gifts for our Patrons.

Thank you sincerely for your interest and support, and please remember that while monetary contributions are deeply appreciated, your commitment to your own practice is even more valuable.

Warmly,
Dan and Tanya
