Here is a basic overall view of the three major pieces of The OCG Project as it has evolved since its inception in November of 2007 and where it stands today...
PART ONE (the BOOK) is the story of a boy and his journey and his evolution through life from growing up adopted, gay, catholic and eldest son of a military family to become first a financial planner, then restauranteur, then antiques dealer, then interior designer, to eventually spiritual teacher, healer, occasional poet and roaming gypsy traveler. It's a modern-day "hero's journey" with plenty of "dark nights of the soul" fraught with the telling of long treks through the lonely deserts of the heart, moments with mystics upon venturing into the caves of the human mind in order to reach the many a mountain tops of immense clarity and Universal connection as the path unfolds for this soul-traveler on an ancient journey through the human experience. It's a story that many will find hard to believe but will not be able to put down until they've discovered where the highway to heaven leads for this young man who comes to be known as Tristan the Truth-Seeker.
PART TWO (the DOCUMENTARY) explores the journey of people in community by exploring and filming the experiences of living and participating in intentional and consciously evolving communities, primarily through volunteer work exchange opportunities around the country and very soon around the world. The current leg of the project takes me into the greater unknown traveling around the world for the next two years visiting sacred sites, intentional (and unintentional) live/work communities, holistic learning centers, ashrams, monasteries, and Lord-only-knows-where (literally) while I film and connect with amazing beings doing amazing light/consciousness work around this big blue planet of ours. Through traveling, writing, filming and offering service work to people and communities around the world, I plan to exchange and record stories with others from all parts of the world with whom we all share space and time with in a world-wide community.
PART THREE (the AOM WISDOM CENTER) is the culmination of the next 3-5 years through phases one and two above, guiding us to the final piece of the three-part process (the holy "tri-unity", if you will) which symbolizes the journey of the collective body of the conscious evolution of all beings on this common ground we all share, our dear Mother Earth. Through this grand exploration, we will attempt to answer many of the questions that are being asked about how personal, spiritual and even global economic and geo-political changes are affecting humanity and how we live in, on and around this living planet today. And more importantly, the bigger question to ask is... "How can we all come together to build a new paradigm of community centered around a central school for higher learning, personal care and collective growth?"
