NINE BEATS is more than an album or a book - it's a new rhythm rising. All around us, people are walking to this beat, and looking at the world through the lens of the beatitudes. The Collective is growing all the time as people bring their own creativity to the NINE BEATS mix.

There is a new way to be human

What could it mean to be a peacemaker in a world that’s specialising in chaos? There is a new way to be human - the beatitudes invite us into that possibility and all are welcome. *This film contains flashing images.

Films from the Way

The Way of Trust

When we come into awareness of not having enough, our first instinct is to close our hands.

The Way of Lament

We human beings have always looked for ways to escape, distract or numb ourselves from the harsh realities of life.

The Way of Humility

Meekness isn’t a quality that is particularly valued in a world built on individualism, competition and comparison.

“The Way of ” series of films were produced by OSBD for NINE BEATS.

A skull is often the central focus, as a reminder of mortality and to act as an invitation to think beyond fleeting things to things of value and substance. You could say they are gentle reminders that there is more to life than meets the eye. So here are 9 memento mori, 9 skulls, for the 9beats project.”
