    Asha Praver Finding Happiness

    in Entertainment

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview celebrity filmaker Asha Praver. She will discuss her film Finding Happiness.

    Finding Happiness is a docu-drama with wide global appeal.  It tells the story of a skeptical NY journalist, Juliet Palmer, played by Elisabeth Rohm (American Hustle, Law & Order) who is sent on assignment to cover an intentional community where hundreds of people have lived in harmony for nearly 50 years.  Her transformation when meeting the actual residents of Ananda in Northern California is profound.  Elisabeth is unfortunately not available for any interviews right now, but if you can take the time to see the film (I will send you a press link within another email---pls watch for it---including in spam in the next 15 minutes) you will see that there are many very bright, highly educated people from which to choose.  I will happily suggest too.  The film was shot in California, Italy and India where they also have communities.  I'm sure I could deliver the perfect guest (part of the community or even the director) for you during any of those times.  www.findinghappinessmovie.com.

During the next eight years she would lose her grandmother, step-father, step-mother,and father, as well as miscarrying in her second trimester while awaiting her mother's boyfriend's trial.

    Ms. King currently lives in Tennessee with her husband Dan and their two children.  She's a world-class worrier, earning her the nickname, The Queen of Concern.  She is also an award-winning songwriter, writing mostly for film and TV.

    Be Your Own God - Finding Happiness Through Self Awareness! With Melanie M Byres @ Andy Peacher 


    Today as you celebrate this major milestone in your life and commence a new stage of your life journey, I ask you to reflect on the gift of life itself. And life, in essence, is nothing but awareness. Furthermore human life, considered the pinnacle of biological evolution, is not just awareness, but self-awareness. Amongst creatures on this planet, we human beings are not only aware; we have the capacity to be aware that we are aware, to be conscious of our consciousness. In that self-awareness lies our potential and power to direct our own future evolution and the future evolution of civilization.

    The Wellness Journey-Finding Happiness, A Journey to Self-Discovery and Joy

    in Lifestyle

    These days you find many self- help books about achieving happiness. Everyone is searching for the answer on how to achieve happiness.  Some say the key to happiness is good health, others say the key to happiness is emotional wellness. Still others say that real happiness lies in a solid relationship; and there are those that would argue that true happiness comes from having plenty of money!  Whatever your opinion might be one thing that we can all agree on is that happiness seems to be a fleeting condition.  Many people feel that happiness is an emotion that is hard to capture and hard to sustain.  But, what if that is not true?  What if happiness is not only attainable, but can be a lasting and important component for a fulfilling life.

    Join me and Asha Prawer as we talk about happiness, how to achieve it and how to keep it.  Asha is an author, international speaker, and spiritual teacher. . Asha’s free talks online and recordings of her classes are a spiritual lifeline for people of many faiths around the world. Thousands of students have received training from her over the past 35 years, and been immeasurably helped by her unusual insight and clarity. 

    Asha appeared in the movie “Finding Happiness”.  A film that brings a new perspective to docudrama, Finding Happiness presents real people living dynamic, harmonious lives in real communities around the world, viewed through the eyes of fictional magazine journalist, Juliet Palmer (Elisabeth Rohm, Law and Order, Heroes, American Hustle)
