Grace and Grit: From Book to Movie to Integral Life Practice
This event starts in:
Join this session to meet the maker of the movie, Grace and Grit, Sebastian Siegel, in Q&A with Nomali Perera, followed by a session of Integral Life Practice.
Inspired by one of Ken Wilber’s most beloved and acclaimed books, Sebastian Siegel set out on a decade-long journey of dedication and commitment, ultimately, to Love. Let’s hear directly from Sebastian about this adventure, and what writing, producing, and directing this movie means.
This session will also include an opportunity to practice. Let us explore the grace and grit we all need in order to live purposefully, face challenges and birth our dreams in the same way Sebastian has, and in how Ken and Treya exemplify in this profoundly touching story of transcendent love.
Released on the 4th of June, 2021, starring Mena Suvari and Stuart Townsend, with Frances Fisher, Rebekah Graf, Nick Stahl, and Mariel Hemingway, the movie Grace and Grit is now available on Amazon Prime, Apple and other streaming services, as well as in select theaters.

Meet Your Practice Leaders
Sebastian Siegel is from Oxford, England, and is based in California where he works as a writer, director, producer, author, and facilitates think tanks engaging numerous modalities of storytelling. His work expresses underlying themes of transcendence, consciousness, joy, and compassion. He cites as strong influences Ken Wilber, Alan Watts, Ramana Maharshi, Joseph Campbell, Chogyam Trungpa, mentor James Whitmore, and the influence of his father’s lectures on Indian mythology.
“Like the book it’s adapted from, this film is brilliant. Grace and Grit will shake you, and maybe even awaken you in some way. This movie is a must-see, especially for anyone interested in love or consciousness.”
