Becoming Nobody is the quintessential portal to Ram Dass’ life and teachings. His ability to entertain and his sense of humor are abundantly evident in a conversation that brings us around to address the vast question of ultimate freedom.
Becoming Nobody represents the core arc of Ram Dass’ teachings and life: whether as Dr. Richard Alpert, the eminent Harvard psychologist, or as Ram Dass who serves as a bridge between Eastern and Western philosophies, he has defined a generation of inner explorers and seekers of truth and wisdom. Through his turns as scion of an eminent Jewish family from Boston, rock-star Harvard psychologist, counter-culture rascally adventurer, Eastern holy man, stroke survivor and compassionate caregiver, Ram Dass has worn many hats on his journey, the narrative of which is revealed in this film.
In Becoming Nobody, historic clips balance an engaging conversation with director Jamie Catto. We come to understand how our old roles and disguises become increasingly burdensome. The film captures a loving man full of joy, wit, honesty and wisdom, at ease in conversation while sharing his considerable pains and pleasures. The life experiences that have freed him from the attachments of his ‘somebody-ness’ have transformed him into the radiant soul who now inspires a new generation.

James Twyman presents his celebrated
Brother Sun, Sister Moon
at Interfaith Center – for one night only!
Based on the life of St. Francis of Assisi
Thursday, February 6, 7-9 pm, $25 – get tickets below!
In February, 2020, the NY Times bestselling author will present his one-man musical based on the life of St. Francis on the off-Broadway stage. To get there he’ll travel across the US penniless, (along with Bill Free) from Portland to New York, with no real plan of how he’ll get from city to city, relying completely on the generosity of others.
“That’s how Francis would have done it,” Twyman explained. “His life was centered on serving humanity in simple, down to earth ways. If he was alive today he’d probably embrace things like social media, but he’d also travel with no money and no possessions. In my case I’ll hitchhike, walk when I have to, and rely upon others for food and places to sleep.”
Sacred Sound Journey
with Mark and Roberta Maxwell
This is a recurring event – stayed tuned for the next date!
Cost $20.00 – buy your tickets below!
Mark and Roberta generously offer this event as a fundraiser for the Interfaith Center for Spiritual Growth.
“In a sound journey, the participants “submerged” in sound. In this gentle but powerful sonic submersion, your energies are harmonized, cleansed, and cleared. The vibrations of our bowls and other instruments move through the physical and mental bodies, creating a sense of ecstasy and well-being.
Typically, participants sit with eyes shut in a meditative position, or lie down with pillows and blankets for maximum relaxation and comfort. During the sound journey, your body naturally “tunes in” and begins to resonate with the vibrations of the instruments, each sound creating a resonance with a different part of your body, mind, and soul.”
Mark and Roberta Maxwell are sound healers and the creators of the Sacred Sound Journey. Their goal is to uplift the spirit of humankind through sacred sound for the benefit of all sentient beings. They play Tibetan bowls, crystal bowls, gongs, flutes, didgeridoos, drums, chimes, and bells to facilitate the creation of a deeply healing energy field that surrounds you and fills you with positive vibrations.
