THE STORY:

We’re raising funds to finish editing a documentary series that  explores the lives of regular men, from all over the world, as they prepare and go through training to become a monk in a temporary ordination program in Thailand.

These men have varied reasons for leaving their modern lives to sit in meditation, study Buddhism and cultivate loving kindness for 40 days. Some find it hard to adapt to this lifestyle, others decide they want to stay longer - even for life. Along the way, they make some interesting discoveries in their lives and perhaps answer the question of whether inner peace can lead to world peace.

This campaign is to finish part one of three.
