Nov 14

David Sunfellow writes: “Filmmaker Heather Dominguez has finished the short version of her documentary, ‘Surviving Death, A Documentary.’ Getting the financial support she needs to bring this project to fruition has been a challenge, so I want to encourage all of us to do what we can to lend a hand. Everyone who resonates with the topics this website explores are forerunners of a new age, a new way of doing things, a profound leap in consciousness. In order to succeed, we absolutely must help one another accomplish the purposes for which we were born. That’s how big things happen in this world — by people joining together and helping one another… This movie needs/deserves to be made — and we, in my view, should be some of its most enthusiastic supporters.”
