9780966696943: Karmu, A Place in the Sun

52 minute documentary about an auto mechanic by day and an urban shaman by night. Karmu welcomed all those in need into his home. Part West Indian curandero, masterful lay counselor, hands-on healer, and down to earth holy man, Karmu fed the hungry, housed the homeless, and healed the sick with his herbal remedies and therapeutic massages. He lifted people's spirits by bombarding them with compliments while getting them to laugh with his hilarious stories. Sometimes he brought clients to his auto shop where he they helped him fix cars. Occasionally, he loaned them a car to use until they got back on their feet.  Karmu treated everyone the same, whether the person was a drug addict looking for a place to crash or a respected professional seeking his advice. In the early 1970s, a group of Harvard graduate students came to learn his healing techniques. Soon, well known people such as Allen Ginsburg, Baba Ram Dass, R.D. Laing, Andrew Weil and Daniel Goleman, came to meet Karmu. Our film uses archival footage mixed with contemporary interviews with his students and professionals. It includes testimonials that describe the impact Karmu had on those he touched.
