My Documentary About Healing… June 20, 2010

Filed under: Complementary Therapies,Healthy Mind,My favorite things! — aprasek @ 3:28 pm

Ten years ago, I was in a sort of catatonic shock from my dad’s death. I thought my life had been destroyed– most of our possessions were repossessed or sold, we were kicked out of our home and I no longer had a dad. I was just turning 18 and I had no idea how to handle any of it. Cue downward spiral…

Now I sit here– ironically on father’s day– with the trailer for my documentary about this journey. The film follows some of my struggles and successes, but most importantly, it brings attention to the small everyday practices that we can implement in our lives to find true healing.

On this father’s day, I can honestly say, “Thank you dad.” You’ve still been with me these last 10 years, teaching me some really challenging lessons. This documentary stems from everything you were, everything we shared and everything you’ve taught me these last 28 years. What a blessing. And by the way, thanks for all the signs lately… I needed them.

Here’s the synopsis for the film:

We have all experienced suffering in our lives. And we have all longed for healing and relief from these times of struggle. Desperate to find a cure for my own self-destruction and depression, I embarked on a journey to find true healing. I began by facing my greatest fear; investigating my dad’s death. Also, as many spiritual seekers do, I packed up my bags and jumped a plane to India. I traveled to Dharamsala to interview the most renowned spiritual leaders, scholars and Tibetan doctors about healing the mind. This is my story through that journey; a journey through a dark maze of suffering with just one goal at the end– happiness.

So, without further ado, here is the trailer for my doco that will be premiering in Spring 2011:


Oh yeah, and if you have a rich aunt or brother who wants to help fund a film, send them my way 🙂

    We are all in this together, we may not share the same experiences but we do share the experience of life and I think life is a big painful lesson (especially for those ready to learn more). I wish you find peace of mind and happiness, no matter what life might throw at you on the road. Thank you for making this documentary! I’m sure it would be helpful to a lot of people. Here’s a title: The trail of a teaching soul
