atman is the humorous true story of a man led by an inner guide to his own awakening. A
Presbyterian ministers son, Malcolm Smith always thought of God as a distant idea. When he is taken by an African shaman on a spiritual journey, Malcolm comes face-to-face with his soul or atman. The encounter dramatically changes the course of his life.
In the boat of Malcolm, on the ocean of life, there is a highly-refined navigation system.
Its name is atman.

Malcom Smith Bio:
A four-time OPB Moth StorySLAM winner, Malcolm loves telling true stories!
Malcolm Smiths career began as an actor. He played Tommy Boatwright in the acclaimed original production of Larry Kramers The Normal Heart, at the New Yorks Public Theater. He performed as a regular for a year with the LA comedy improv group Specific Hospital. As a writer, Malcolm worked on the Marvel comic book series, The Harrowers: Raiders of the Abyss. And then, a single dose of a homeopathic remedy changed the course of his life.
Malcolm attended medical school at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. and became a naturopathic physician. He practiced as a homeopathic doctor, specializing in the release of hidden limiting beliefs within the psyche, making room for the emergence of the authentic self. Twenty years later, Malcolms life is altered again, this time through a mystical experience with the sacred African root, Iboga. There, he meets his lifelong companion, atman.
Malcolm's unique understanding of how one's atman provides teaching to each of us, in the form of dreams, and how its only goal is to assist us in the process of awakening, gives him a clear and unique focus in his dreamwork with clients. Malcolm uses dreams as daily course corrections-- and has his own unique worldview built upon homeopathy, sacred plant medicine, and his Nichiren Buddhist practice.
