After Harvard expelled Richard Alpert for LSD experimentation in 1964, the former professor traveled to India and returned as Ram Dass. Now in his seventies, the author of Be Here Now continues to teach and inspire as he deals with a massive stroke.
Fierce Grace documents Ram Dass remaking his life. While the illness might have broken others, it provided Dass with a new passion: using an unexpected, uninvited challenge as a tool for spiritual transformation, and using what he learns to help others face issues of aging, death and dying.
The donations accepted at this screening will support the Seva Foundation. Seva is sanskrit for service to others. Since 1978, Seva has been a leading innovator in building partnerships that deliver cost-effective, culturally informed health services for some of the world's most vulnerable-including women, children and indigenous peoples.
