Healing the Wounds of a War| 8mins
Director: Frederic Louradour | Producer: Art of Living Productions
Focus Years: 2007 | Country: Germany
This is a short film that reveals a brief 3 day visit made by Sri Ravi Shankar to Iraq in 2007. Despite being advised against doing so, he went in order to bring the message of peace to the war torn, violence stricken nation. It is stated by the Iraqi PM to Sri Ravi Shankar that spirituality is the only solution available to the country. The film shows how transformation is taking place in Iraq, in a country where it is sorely needed. The establishment of trauma relief centers for the purpose of relieving war related stress, as well as the sending of Iraqi youths to India for leadership training, are just 2 of the few examples that are highlighted as ways in which the Art of Living Foundation is helping to bring about change in a country that has seemingly lost all hope of peace.
