First few minutes of
"Ecstatic States" featuring Ram Dass
There are many consciousness teachers around today, but none have the
intelligence, insight, humour, personal experience, and academic training
as Ram Dass. He is recognised as the teacher's teacher, and celebrated
by hundreds of thousands of people, whose lives he inspired.
consider the following:
- Have you ever wondered
whether you have any way of experiencing higher or altered states
of consciousness ?
- Perhaps you have
had times where you perceived life in a totally different way,
or maybe you believe that there must be realms of experience and perception,
far greater and more amazing than those of everyday life.
- Or, have you heard
there are people who have entered into ecstasy, bliss
and euphoria, without drugs or extreme practices,
and who speak of these as the true state for every human being?
- Or maybe you practice
Yoga, Meditation, Martial Arts, or are interested
in true Self Development, or follow a Spiritual
path, in the hope of gaining insight into the secret of life,
or contacting and using a far higher intelligence.
- Or are you interested
in higher potentials of the mind, and revealing powers
of creativity and insight, from deep
within yourself, which will put you on the same levels as geniuses and
exalted beings from all ages?
name is Michael Domeyko Rowland. I am Australia's leading self development
author and presenter. Over 220,000 people have attended my seminars. I
am also the author of the bestselling book, ĎAbsolute Happiness'.
over 35 years, I have been studying self development and successful living.
My entire adult life has been committed to learning how, or what, I need
to do in order to live a life filled with joy, happiness and inner peace,
and have the ability to access the transpersonal realms and higher states
I am happy to say that I have had some incredible experiences as a result
of this work. If you apply yourself to it properly, it will definitely
bring results. But, of course, you need to know exactly what the goal
is, or obviously you will not arrive. Precise knowledge of this goal is
the most important factor for anyone's life.
of the first and greatest influences which clarified the goal perfectly,
was Ram Dass. Originally a Psychology Professor at Harvard
University, Ram Dass (Dr Richard Alpert), along with Timothy Leary
and Aldous Huxley, influenced a whole generation
of people about higher powers of the mind, expanded states of consciousness
and ecstatic states.
based it all in a scientific, methodical and rational framework, and so
allowed these deep, and most meaningful human experiences, to be available
to anyone interested in exploring them. His discoveries have greatly
increased understanding of the psyche and consciousness, and have significantly
enhanced countless people's lives.
have been so impressed by his discoveries, that I have directed a documentary video
interview about his life and work. In it, Ram Dass tells of:
- His amazing experiments
with psychedelic substances
- His journey across
the world, ending in the Himalayas, and meetings with the enlightened
beings, Neem Karoli Baba and Paramahansa Muktananda.

- How his discoveries
are expanding the boundaries of traditional psychology
- Bringing up children
- The deepest meaning
and purpose of human life
stories are absolutely amazing and jaw dropping. And, with them all, he
is highly intelligent, very, very humorous, and gives deep insights
into the human condition.
80 minute interview and documentary is designed to allow
you to be present at a conversation you will never be able to hear anywhere
again. It is filled with information about how your mind works, and can
radically alter your perception of what your life has to offer you.
is all explained in a way which is very easy to understand. Coupled with
beautiful and rare images from India, and 3D
graphics to enrich his stories and explanations, you have a
unique and brilliant video experience with the most influential and perceptive
teacher of human potentials.
Those who are familiar with the inspiring clarity with which Ram
Dass shares himself will be delighted with this wonderful video.
What initially appears to be a biographical documentary is transformed
by Michael Domeyko Rowland's interview questions into a very different
are taken deep into the realms of expanded awareness, where meditation
techniques, the guru, karma, the distinction between awareness and
consciousness, ageing, miracles, subtle energy body anatomy, and
many other features of the spiritual landscape are clearly described
and discussed in the context of Ram Dass' extraordinary life.
Excellently produced and directed, Ecstatic States is an engrossing
reminder that there are dimensions of reality always open to us
in the here and now to which we need only bring the awareness that
is available to us all the time - once we tune into it.
This is an empowering video to watch again and again.”

watching the Ram Dass video with Michael Rowland, I understand why
he has become, and has remained, a renowned teacher in the West.
Ram Dass' journey from Harvard Professor to spiritual seeker, his
experiences in the East, and his meetings and travels with extraordinary
beings is rivetting. He has an ability to communicate and express
so many of the lessons and teachings he has received with such humour,
and fantastic stories and anecdotes.
He makes you feel he is speaking directly to you in your own living
room, answering so many of your unspoken questions about the spiritual
path. It is such a pleasure to hear the perspective of someone who
has lived such a varied and rich spiritual life, and who has become
Every time I watch this video I learn more from it, and I feel totally
inspired to continue on my own journey! It is so rare to be able
to speak to a Western wise man who has not only experienced these
things, but is able to express them to
loved the nostalgic, opening shots of an innocent India, before
it became industrialized.
For me, this video is significant, as we seldom have the chance
to hear a personal account of the inner journey told so simply,
clearly and directly from Presence. This is an account of Richard
Alpert's unfolding journey into the splendid Ram Dass.
In the late 60's, Richard Alpert and Timothy Leary visited Mexico
where we were living, and we met. At the time both men were
convinced that drugs alone could bring about evolution and
'enlightenment'. Later Alpert realized that they gave you an experience
of a state, without connecting with the evolution of the internal
being, so he began his dedicated research into his own mind, to
discover how it distorted the clear perception of reality that already
exists in all of us.
His understanding that Awareness is the true path, ecstatic states
the byproduct, is rare. That the path is totally individual, and
even 'crocheting' can take you there if that is your true path.
That ultimately your gurus live, not outside you to be worshipped,
but within you, to be interacted with internally, sharing a higher
dimension, reveals the depth of his enquiry.
It was heart warming to watch him 'turn in', before answering a
complex question, never allowing a lesser meaning to take over from
a true meaning, his deep understanding of the reality of the other
world that embraces and penetrates this one - and much, much more.
Checking myself at the end, I found I was really happy, something
inside had been deeply nourished and confirmed.
Many people spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on seminars and information
that has only part of the story. Save yourself hours searching through
the myriad of "new age gurus", because, fortunately, Ram Dass distils
a lifetime of knowledge and experience into one 80 minute video, which covers
in the clearest possible way, the goal and real potentials of human life.
