Transformation: The Life and Legacy of Werner Erhard (2006)

Only available in United States

In the early 1970s, Werner Erhard created the enormously influential est training, attended by a million people, and pioneered what would become the multi-billion dollar personal-growth industry. Controversy surrounded Erhard, his training and his methods. Now, some 30 years later, Emmy-award-winning director Robyn Symon takes another look at Erhard, through colleagues, family members, and especially those who underwent the training. Erhard himself sat for a rare interview.

Thank you for this film. Just yesterday I had wondered what happened to this movement and the movie shows up for me today. I had some bosses attend many years ago, well before I ever got into "self-improvement". It sounded creepy then, but now I get it and now I know why I didn't hear of it during my own years of attending "self-improvement" seminars.

Another compelling story of the condition and current state of humanity. As long as we rely on the media to deliver the "truth" we will not receive it untainted. It will be brewed through power brokers. Good "news" is, developing intuition (through programs such as Werner's and other means) will help us to become healthy, discerning attractors of truth! Thank you Werner and associates for persevering!

I really love this film. Est was the beginning of the human potential movement, and very misunderstood. Thank you for this film.
