Looking to the East to Solve Your Problems in the West?

Very much looking forward to this one hitting our Netflix queue.

When we first came across the trailer for Kumaré we couldn't help but laugh out loud.

It wouldn't hurt every single yogi/spiritual seeker to watch this flick (or at least the trailer!) and then take a good. hard. look. at their own teachers. Just saying.

In Kumaré: The True Story of a False Prophet, filmmaker Vikram Gandhi seeks to explore the question of human spirituality by impersonating a "wise Indian Guru" named Kumaré. We're assuming a wide range of emotion (hilarity!) ensues. See below for the movie trailer.

We remember the exact moment our idolization of yoga teachers was shattered. We were in the Kinko's on Alton Road about six years ago when a certain Jivamukti teacher came in having a nervous breakdown on her cell phone. She was screaming so loudly that the bindi flew off of her forehead. You know who you are. Freak.
