Be part of a new paradigm for film creation and distribution.  Into Eden is raising funds to finish and distribute the film. We are doing it a new way, through the support of our audience. The goal of $1.3 million creates a film, an action community and marketing outreach for a story that wants to be told and shared worldwide. Thank you to the Kalliopeia Foundation and The Mangrove Foundation for their generous support at the Crystal Level.

TREE MEDIA GROUP

Storytelling needs to happen from a place of inspiration, love and the joy of sharing; rather than from a place of fear. And, as Paul Ray and Sherry Anderson point out in their book The Cultural Creatives: How 50 Million Americans are Changing the World, there is a vast group of people who do not see their stories, myths or lives represented in the media.  Tree  is committed to telling stories that transform, inspire and awaken.  Tree’s projects have spanned the spectrum of media including film and TV projects, web, motion media shorts, and online action communities.

For $25 you support the film by buying the DVD in advance. You will receive a copy of the Into Eden DVD upon release. You show your support and we can make a movie. Gift this package to many and spread the word.

This would also be a generous gift to someone who you think should get involved. You are a serious supporter.

We are living at a time when the assumptions and behaviors of our modern civilization have undermined not only our economic and social stability, but, more important, the earth’s very life support systems. Now the human race must respond and solve these crisis. We have long known, for at least 30 years, that human activity is undermining the ecosystem, polluting the air, water and land, and causing massive species extinction; as well as creating vast disparities of wealth distribution, and financial instability in our modern economies. However, we have been unable to halt our destructive behavior. This brings me to a very critical question: If the earth is our only home and stability is what we seek, why do we behave the way we do? The 11th Hour started to address some of these questions and at the end of the film, Wes Jackson, farmer and President of the Land Institute, said:

“Now to me the value that comes from the healing power that comes from getting, that it’s not just global warming, it’s not just fossil fuel dependency, it’s not just soil erosion. It’s not just chemical contamination of our land and water, it’s not just the population problem. And it’s not just all of those, the deterioration of the environment, of our planet, is an outward mirror of an inner condition. Like inside, like outside and that’s a part of the great work.”

Into Eden is about this “great work,” the work of understanding what has happened “inside,” inside the human species and inside our consciousness. As the outside is our home, planet earth, and it is in crisis, we, then, clearly are in crisis on the inside. I want to explore this crisis, understand why we are in crisis, and how to shift out of crisis into healing and solution. I feel that once we better understand ourselves, we will heal ourselves, and stop the deterioration within and without. We will also then realize that we live in Eden, that the garden of life is still about us and in us, and that we are able to live in it, in harmony. There is no more urgent work than this, and we must get about the business, as fast  as we can. – Leila Conners
