Illuminate Film Festival | May 31 – June 4 | Sedona, AZ

Join me in Sedona, AZ for the Illuminate Film Festival, the best of conscious cinema. This is my 2nd year on the Illuminate Dream Team helping with varying aspects of the festival…you don’t want to miss the incredible films, programs and people from all over the world focused on conscious living, mindfulness and creating a happier and healthier planet. Danette Wolpert, Director and Founder (and dear friend), just won an award for Illuminate, and spoke at Wisdom 2.0 in California.

Illuminate is a life changing experience showcasing films that will open your eyes and show you what’s possible. Some of the films featured last year were: I Am Not Your Guru: Tony Robbins, Maya Angelou – And Still I Rise, Love, Sweat & Tears (with Rev. Michael Beckwith, Jenny McCarthy, the late Joan Rivers, Rev. June Gatlin and Dr. Pam Gaudry), Teal Swan: The Making of  Spiritual Catalyst and Thank You For Your Service (an incredible film about using mindfulness to help veterans cope with PTSD), to name a few.
