Becoming Nobody is a doorway to Ram Dass' life and teachings. His ability to entertain and his sense of humor is captured by filmmakers as they address the vast question of ultimate freedom.
Ram Dass is more than some 1960’s Harvard psychologist turned hippie. He served as a bridge between Eastern and Western philosophies and defined a generation of inner explorers and seekers of truth and wisdom through his travels to India. Delving into Ram Dass’ experiences as a scion of an eminent Jewish family back in Boston, rock-star Harvard psychologist, counter-culture psychedelic adventurer, spiritual teacher, stroke survivor, and compassionate caregiver, this inspiring documentary offers a comprehensive portrait of his life.
In Becoming Nobody, archival footage balances an engaging conversation with director Jamie Catto. Through this dialogue, we understand how our old roles and disguises become a prison of our self-identity. The life experiences that have freed Ram Dass from the attachments of his "somebody-ness" have transformed him into the radiant soul who now inspires a new generation. By exploring the origins of Ram Dass' teachings, you can discover your own authentic self and uncover what sounds true within you.
