About the Film
A film by Speakeasy Factory LLC and Bohemian Babe
In the beginning, it is said that there was sound. It has been used throughout history as a transformational tool in ceremonies, celebrations and even in times of war. It can soothe us in the form of a gentle rain or create anxiety invoked by blaring sirens passing by. Will sound, vibration and frequency be the medicine of the future? GOING OM is a documentary film that explores the secrets of sound health.
Follow this award-winning team as they travel to find out the power within these elements. What if your words could literally change the world around you? Would you choose them more carefully? From plants to outer space, this journey looks at the potential to raise or lower the vibrations around us. Are we capable of healing or hurting through sound vibration? As we embark on the adventure of GOING OM, we hope you will join us.
"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration." - Nikola Tesla
