The Himalayan Trilogy Series:

A record of three journey undertaken by filmmaker, writer, and economist Laurence J. Brahm between 2002 and 2004. Exploring mysterious regions of southwest China and Tibet, Brahm discovers that the beauty and silence of the mountain passes, rivers, and great valleys mirror the interior state of his soul. Further, that the future of humanity depends on our being able to modify our own economies and cultures to be more in harmony with our planet—in part by preserving and protecting the ethnic cultures of those from whom we may learn to reestablish a more gentle interaction with sacred nature.

• An alternative philosophy travelogue and an eloquent call for compassion

Conversations with Sacred Mountains

• Discover the ancient mythic archetype of the sacred mountain and its meaning for the modern world.

• Chronicles a physical pilgrimage that transforms into a spiritual journey.

• Offers a first hand look at unknown regions and indigenous exotic and unique cultures and ethnic groups.

Laurence Brahm made his second journey in 2003. He followed the actual route of Lost Horizon along the ancient Tea Caravan Trail in Yunnan Province of southwest China.

Starting in the capital city of Kunming, he traveled from Dali to Lijang through Yi to Lago Lake and to Zhongdia and Deqin and the sacred Kawegabo Mountain. Each region has its own culture and ethnic tradition and is trying to preserve the old way of life while adapting to the economic realities of modern life and tourism.
