As we head into the holiday season, Halloween just passed, and the quasi-religious rituals surrounding our national holidays of Thanksgiving and the orgy of spending that has become Christmas on the horizon, KMR takes a look back to a conversation with Alex Mar for her 2010 documentary AMERICAN MYSTIC. Mar’s film looks at the draw of ritual and ceremony for three people in particular, and humankind in general. While we may not be pagan witches, or Lakota Sioux Sundancers, or studying to become a medium/psychic healer, what Mar reveals by observing these three subjects is uncannily familiar to anyone who has wondered if there is something more to the universe that what our limited five senses can report.
We also learn what messages Mar herself received from the Other Side, and what her ideal way of spending Halloween (Samhain) would be.
