Fire on the Mountain – A Gathering of Shamans

Fire on the Mountain: A Gathering of Shamans

A film by David Cherniack Productions in association with Global Vision Corporation and Mystic Fire Video Fire on the Mountain: A Gathering of Shamans is a documentary about the connection between consciouness and nature, as embodied in the spiritual traditions of Indigenous Peoples, whose ecological metaphors of the sacred are so relevant to the modern world. We shot the project in 1997 at an historic 10-day gathering of shamans from five continents, who travelled to Karma Ling, a Tibetan Buddhist retreat centre in the Val Saint Hugon in Savoy, in the French Alps, to discuss their concerns with H.H. the Dalai Lama and high-level representatives of the world’s religions. This documentary embodies the wish of these Indigenous People – all traditional wisdom-keepers, shamans and medicine-women – who requested us to communicate their message to the world. The video can be purchased by online mailorder from Mystic Fire Video at

    This video truly moved me to tears several times because of the simple message of peace and the coming together of many indigenous traditions from all over the world. I myself am 1/4 Mohawk Indian and for the last 5+ years studied the traditions of Shamanism in all parts of the world. I am fascinated with being a healer and for 3 of those 5+ years truly begun to realize my potential and the natural gifts given to me by the creator. I would love to learn more about the traditions of my tribe as well as the language, as my Mohawk nationality is the most important one to me. I hope that more people will come together in such a way to promote peace within themselves so that we as brothers and sisters of the human race can be one step closer to finding peace and harmony with the world and all it’s beautiful people. Namaste!

    Hi Nicole, yes, this video had the same effect on me. We are entering a time when people will start acting from the heart instead of the mind. That is when we will know peace. Right now, we are all called to be healers. Healers of ourselves, healers of each other and healers of Mother Earth. I would definitely invite you to pursue your roots as a shaman/healer in your tribe. Thank you so much for sharing, and good luck on your journey. Peace, Shamantube.
