* Transformative Media is moving image media which seeks to elicit transformational experiences in the viewer and the creative  team, and contribute to the transformation of self, culture, and world. The unique aesthetic and experiential nature and multi-sensory capacities of the moving image in all its evolving forms makes it a potentially powerful and valuable tool for the mediation of individual and collective change and transformation. From the beginning of the history of the moving image, cinematic artists have attempted to use this transformative capacity of the medium to transport audiences to other realms; to affect cultural and political transformation; and more recently,  to induce healing and personal growth. Throughout the generations, the great cinematic masters have discovered, tested, and passed down the secrets to unlocking this inherent transformative capacity of the medium. Their wisdom is now being combined with the most recent advancements in audiovisual research, and the transformational technologies of integral, transpersonal, evolutionary and complexity theories and practices, to bring cinematic media to the next level of transformative power. For more information on these new transformative media approaches see Mark's pioneering articles on the subject: Transpersonal Dimensions of the Cinema, Toward an Integral Cinema, Integral Cinema Studio, and Integral Cinematic Analysis.
