Dear Friends, Welcome to our WisdomFilms DVD Collection, a new concept in meaning-based innertainment. We offer these films as a new way to breathe, relax and come home to yourself, providing a sanctuary to calm, center, and hopefully, inspire you.
To maximize your experience, let go of the concerns of the day, breathe fully and naturally, and allow yourself to feel a connection to the things that matter most. Sharing these films with others tends to inspire an appreciation for the preciousness of the moment and the miracle of life itself.
When you feel unusually stressed, remember that you can just close your eyes and bathe yourself in the sound. The blending of spoken wisdom and music alone can provide rejuvenation and soul nourishment. In fact, simply listening to this alchemical wisdom has been endorsed by health professionals as part of a daily healing practice.
These films provide a unique opportunity to cultivate the witness within – that quiet inner-knowing which can help us to experience equanimity in the midst of any storm. This state, known as The Relaxation Response, enhances your overall health while strengthening your capacity for compassion and inner peace. When youve cultivated these qualities, you become a part of the fabric of the worlds solutions, rather than its problems. This witness within experience over time – can help you, as Gandhi once said, to become the change you wish to see in the world.
We hope that you will also enjoy the section that weve included entitled Unspeakable Grace, where the films are supported by music alone, so that you can infuse your surroundings with a kind of environmental ambience, filling the space with beauty and peace. It is our hope that all of these films will deepen your access to gratefulness, no matter what the circumstances of your life might be.
In celebration of all life,
San Francisco, CA
“These inspiring short films can help us connect our deepest selves to the vast world we live in. No service could be more important.
