Journey of the Universe
An Epic Story of Cosmic, Earth, and Human Transformation

A documentary film project, book, and 20-part educational series
By Brian Thomas Swimme and Mary Evelyn Tucker

Journey of the Universe
tells the story of evolution from the beginning to the present. It aims to inspire a new and closer relationship with Earth in a period of growing environmental and social crisis.

The project was inspired by the New Story described by Thomas Berry, a cultural historian and geologian.

This project reveals how contemporary scientific knowledge, while different from the ways of knowing in ancient spiritual traditions, is similar in that it brings us to a common human experience of awe. The project evokes a shared sense of wonder as we find ourselves in the presence of the immense, complex, and self organizing creativity of the universe and the Earth. With our host, Brian Thomas Swimme, we explore together the cosmic processes out of which we have emerged and which are still alive in us.
