Filmmakers Gerald and Adam Krell filming an interview.
The two-hour feature documentary “Your Health: A Sacred Matter” depicts a comprehensive overview of the relationship between religion, spirituality, and health. “Your Health” examines the past and present role religion and health have played in Western medicine. The film tells the personal stories of doctors, nurses, patients, chaplains, and caregivers as they explore life’s important questions:
- What connections between religion, spirituality and health are increasingly common in contemporary society?
- What is the role of religion and spirituality in healers’ lives and their approach to healing?
- How are modern biomedical investigations into mind/body connections challenging conventional views about religion & spirituality in the West?
- How do modern healers respond to their multicultural clientele?
The documentary program and educational outreach initiative were underwritten by the John Templeton Foundation. The documentary was filmed on location nationwide, including: New York, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Cal., Navajo Nation/Gallup NM, Boca Raton, Fla. Philadelphia, and Chester, SC. Public television stations will be airing the documentary nationwide commencing in May.
