The Mother Matrix chronicles the lost mysteries around mother worship in India. This sacred knowledge has been held for thousands of years hidden in the depths of the earth’s wisdom fields. The human race has forgotten its true home. Who is the Mother? Is she the earth, the cosmos, or something beyond what we see? The documentary film addresses the fundamental truths of why humans seek love, and ultimately die into the field of love. But “we” the majority of humans tend to think that this life on earth is all there is……and yet there is a whole other world where the Mother sits in her throne, watching for our arrival. Filmed in remote locations of India’s tantric temples. Release Date 2017!
Colleena Shakti defies the falsehood of living a mundane life. She spent her youth in California, but has been living in Rajasthan, India for thirteen years dancing with the kalbelia gypies in the dessert, and traveling the world, enlightening people with her endless gaze and intrepid drive for art. She is an artist, but also a seeker of truth. She is not here to sell her art, but to live it, and keep these ancient traditions alive while India becomes modernized and swallowed up by consumerism. Filmed in exotic India and across the globe. Directed by Julianne Reynolds & Produced by Colleena Shakti.

This documentary captures the personal story of a woman & man, whom both were effected by their mothers getting breast cancer at a very young age during the 80’s when the topic of Breast Cancer hadn’t reach main stream media. One day they woke up, only to realize their own disconnection from inner child, having not been able to express the loss of their mothers at a very young age. They felt trapped in a world that no one could understand. Years later, they are still holding onto the hope that this will be healed within and for the world. How do we as a society break our attachment to a world economy based on greed and fear, causing a “dis-ease” to the natural rhythms of nature?
