The Spiritual Cinema Circle ( a company of Gaiam, Inc.) originally grew out of collaboration between film producer Stephen Simon and psychologists Kathlyn and Gay Hendricks. Stephen had produced many beloved movies with spiritual themes, such as "Somewhere In Time" and "What Dreams May Come," and had given hundreds of talks and seminars on the emerging genre of Spiritual Cinema. During that time The Hendricks had created a non-profit foundation dedicated to creating a new consciousness in mass media.
The Spiritual Cinema Circle is a paid membership. Members receive four uplifting films – one feature and three short films–each month on DVD, a mix of documentaries, international features, animation, family movies, and more. Each inspirational movie is selected for uplifting and motivational content from the hundreds produced around the world each year.
The membership includes unlimited access to Gaiam TV (now renamed Gaia), with thousands of online stream videos in dozens of categories, including documentaries, feature films, wellness videos, conscious media, and original programming exclusive to Gaiam TV. Affiliate program is available through LinkShare.
