A visually stunning, eye opener, 26 October 2012
Author: sacredpathcentre from Canada

Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds creates a space of interconnection with viewers that I have rarely experienced in documentary viewing. Visually flawless and breathtaking, the film captures the threads that underlie all spiritual paths and practise. It is a film to help us as humans grow into the new time that is coming. Dan Schmidt draws from a diverse historical perspective, weaving extraordinary visual imagery that emphasizes the film's message.I cannot compare this film with any other documentary that I have seen, it has a quality of authenticity and power that is often lacking in film making. It seems to have no other goal than to assist the collective consciousness in awakening.

Pulling 'the veil' back for everyone to see, 9 January 2013
Author: Marc Knez from Canada

This movie is the single best exposition on the spiritual 'arts and sciences' that I believe or know to exist in the world. The content is rich and deep, presented in brilliant sequence with shockingly high production values. The visuals are nothing short of stunning and the subject-matter impeccably researched and presented. 

"Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds" effectively pulls back the 'veil' of reality by literally painting it's picture for the viewer. This movie represents an evolutionary leap forward in how this knowledge can be assembled and delivered and (IMO) should be considered a 'must see' for anyone interested in developing a comprehensive perspective on the nature of reality... which is the human condition.

And the truth shall set you free..., 16 January 2013
Author: Elea Oberon from United States

If you have a scientific mind, and spiritual stuff is kinda mumbo jumbo or just really out there for you.... Then this movie is for you. 

If you love and know spirit, or are a seeker... Then this movie is for you. 

Nothing more needs to be said but IMDb requires ten lines to post a review. Well, in that case, I will share that as I went on this masterful journey, every cell in my body quieted down. My mind became soothed, my logic became satiated, my devil's advocate went to take a nap. I felt love stir in my heart, for no reason with no object. I felt a deep desire to go try this at home...

Wonderful Visuals, great story, 5 January 2013
Author: personalcompser from United States

If you have any interest in the sacred geometry and/or closed and open eyed visuals seen during times of intense meditation you will be seriously impressed by the computer generated fractals and other displays in this film. You might even enjoy the film's message and the quietly authoritative sound of the narrator's voice. Be ready to have some of your viewpoints on what the meaning of Life is challenged. The viewpoint of the film is not hidden if you pay the slightest attention but since the perceived viewpoint may be different for many viewers I won't spoil the party by stating what I took away from it. Watch this several times with friends and see what they think about it. It was worth the 2 hrs plus, actually 4 hrs plus since I've seen it twice now. Will watch again.
