Take an experiential journey through the themes of Metamorphosis, featuring behind the scenes webisodes shot during the creation of the film. Join directors Nova Ami and Velcrow Ripper, and their baby Phoenix, as they travel into the heart of change.


The Journey begins with Chrysalis - setting intention, creating clarity and spaciousness.  



Next, we choose a particular Crisis to explore,  one that affects us directly.  

In Catharsis, we delve into the shadow.  How do we embrace the crisis, how do we fully feel into it, and then transform that pain?  How do we ‘expand the view’ beyond fear or limitation?

In the Symbiosis phase, we learn to create balance and harmony out of crisis, develop an action plan and a way to move forward.

In Metamorphosis, we explore the process of transformation, and learn to tap into our ‘Protean Self’- that part of us that is open and willing to change.


This journey is also presented as a workshop lead by Nova Ami and Velcrow Ripper.  LEARN MORE
