The Mystic Spiral

I love this short BBC documentary from 1974 featuring sound healing pioneer Jill Purce, who I had on the podcast recently. Jill’s early work on the mystic spiral in various traditions (and nature) influenced everyone from German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen to molecular biologist Francis Crick who discovered the helical structure of DNA. I love the slow pace of this film, how they allow the story to unfold gracefully, kind of like a spiral :-)
