Premananda dialogues with Reinhold about his new book and film "The Great Misunderstanding", and the Open Sky House Community which is the setting for this project about living spirituality. He shares how this project came together as a compilation of his Satsangs from the last ten years. The daily life examples of the Satsang community make the book and film into something special. In this experiment of conscious living it becomes very clear how mind structures and trauma prevent awakening (summer 2013).
