William Segal, was a philosopher, publisher, writer and painter who searched relentlessly and compassionately for meaning in the 20th century. Segal helped bring Eastern and Western spiritual traditions together, always stressing what connected humanity rather than what differentiated it. In the last decade of his life, Segal befriended the documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, and the two collaborated on this trilogy.

Mindful Film

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: Seeing, Searching, Being - William Segal DVD:

Initially, I used this film in my writing course as an educator to bring a unique "guest" into our college classroom, one who my students probably might not meet in their day to day lives. Later, though, I gave this film as a gift to friends when they want to reflect upon their own day to day lives. I also use this film as a mini refresher course for myself to remember what it means to be mindful and to own one's focus with one's chosen work. This is an excellent film. Mr. Segal reminds me that one can age with grace and dignity. Ken Burns is an outstanding film maker.

I am grateful for way-showers like Segal. Also, this documentary woke me up to the contribution Ken Burns is making to our society.

meditative viewing

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: Seeing, Searching, Being - William Segal DVD:

I purchased this CD for use in my university classes on Buddhism and Asian art. It did not disappoint. Segal is a riveting figure whose life eloquently represents his philosophy. I hope the students can appreciate its low key profundity.
