Mountain High: touching the void with Bob Fergeson
“When the thought and the mind goes away, all you are left with is
the real part of yourself…. In the quiet, there is a sense of eternality
and unconditional love.”
~ Bob Fergeson
The sense of eternality marks the work of photographer, mountaineer, and spiritual teacher Bob Fergeson. Set among the Rocky Mountains, Bob’s story of spiritual awakening weaves the passions of the creative life and a love for the outdoors into a compelling narrative of a spiritual search. From his childhood attempts to capture moments of ethereal, quiet beauty with a Brownie box camera, Bob’s life careened towards a crushing encounter with alcoholism, then flowered in a time of self exploration through painting, drawing, and dreamwork, led to years of spiritual disciplines, and culminated in a final encounter with Truth, a spiritual awakening, that left him weeping on a Colorado mountainside.
Whether you frame your quest as a search for God, truth, enlightenment, spiritual awakening, certainty, or an aching longing to fill a void inside, you will find this feature-length documentary is more than just a film, it is a resource that you will mine for inspiration and advice again and again.
Bob is the author of the short, thought-provoking classic The Listening Attention.
