In these times of crisis, there is an electric charge in the air, a burgeoning renewal amongst both the people who have focused their lives on spirit, and those whose lives are centered around the struggle for change. This exciting movement of Spiritual Activism is exploding around the planet, and the powerful personalities that are igniting it.

Fueled by the belief that "another world is possible," acclaimed filmmaker Velcrow Ripper seeks out today's stories of what Martin Luther King called "Love in Action," and Gandhi called "Soul Force"—what Ripper is calling "Fierce Light." It is the way of the Sacred Warrior, uncompromisingly nonviolent, with a power that radiates from the heart and outwards. It is that same spirit that swept Barack Obama into the White House—undeniably hopeful, and full of possibility.
