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.

Jesse interviews Devi and Jyotish Novak on the film “Finding Happiness” – filmed on location at the Ananda Communities in California, Italy, and India. It follows the story of a young woman spending a week in the community. She meets several people who, in their own unscripted words, share their story of moving from Idealism to Inner Transformation. They share not only the experience of the Ananda Community; but also universal truths that allow one to transform their life. The story originates in the 1920s when Paramhansa Yogananda arrived on America’s shores. Yogananda’s mission included two key points that powerfully influenced his young disciple, J. Donald Walters, later renowned as Swami Kryananda. First – personal change starts within. Second – our environment greatly influences our search for happiness. Yogananda envisioned places where people could put high principles into action – “world brotherhood colonies”. Swami Kriyananda founded the first community near Nevada City, CA in the beautiful foothills of the Sierra Nevada. We will be looking at the lifestyle of these communities and the story “Finding Happiness”. To find out more about this work you can go to: www.findinghappinessmovie.com
