AWAKE is an unconventional biography about Paramahansa Yogananda, the world-renowned author of the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s.Many highly influential people — including Steve Jobs, George Harrison, and Russell Simmons, all of whom are featured in the film — have been deeply impacted by Yogananda. In bringing the once-secret techniques of yoga to the West, Yogananda was committed to democratizing these teachings. “He knew the power of initiative,” says renowned Yoga and Ayurveda instructor Mas Vidal, who is also featured in AWAKE. “He didn’t wait for anybody to get this wisdom out.” Yogananda sent out lessons via mail; at a time when mail order was considered a brand new cutting-edge technology. The Gathr Films Theatrical on Demand model is today’s vanguard technology for delivering a message to communities across America.
