About

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.

Dan started creating films in 2009. He had 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 his own inner journey and experiences in meditation. The films began to work through him, and he would say that they have created and shaped him as much as he has created them.

The Inner Worlds Outer Worlds film series took three years for Dan to complete and reached over 30 million people in over 30 languages, winning about a dozen awards internationally. In 2013 he sold his business in order to dedicate himself full time to the Awaken the World Initiative. Tanya joined the Awaken the World team in 2016, and in 2017 the film Samadhi Part One was released, as well as a 4 part - 4 hour guided meditation series. Samadhi Part Two was released in 2018, and since then they've been working full time on multiple projects.

Dan does most of the writing, video production, animation, music composition, narration, tech support, etc, etc., and Tanya assists with the admin, writing, editing and producing of the films. Contributions of art and music are also made by many amazing artists who resonate with our work. Working independently on the films is a wonderful experience in that we get to honor and preserve our vision, but it also means that we are quite limited in how much manpower we can contribute to each project. Because of a clear, unwavering commitment that the films be made available for free, they have generated minimal income, which does bring some challenges. 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 compliment to the content in the projects but are incredibly time consuming to undertake alone, and far beyond our budget to contract out.  As well, equipment upgrades, access to better shots, as well as the freedom to contract outside help when needed will all allow production to flow much more efficiently. As of 2020, there are several projects on the go, including Samadhi Part 3, a Virtual Retreat experience, and a film about our experience with the entheogen Iboga. We also have a plan to create an animated film about meditation geared towards children!

All of the Patreon rewards are the same, regardless of the size of donation. We also offer free, weekly drop in zoom meditations that Dan or Tanya guide; the recordings of which are available exclusively to our Patreon supporters. We also share original music tracks, writings and fractal art as thank you gifts for our Patrons.

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

Warmly,
Dan and Tanya
