From the creators of You Can Heal Your Life: The Movie comes a compelling portrait of three modern lives in need of new direction and new meaning. In his first-ever movie (written by Kristen Lazarian and directed by Michael Goorjian), Wayne Dyer explores the spiritual journey in the second half of life when we long to find the purpose that is our unique contribution to the world. The powerful shift from the ego constructs we are taught early in life by parents and society—which promote an emphasis on achievement and accumulation—are shown in contrast to a life of meaning, focused on serving and giving back.
Filmed on coastal California’s spectacular Monterey Peninsula, The Shift captures every person’s mid-life longing for a more purposeful, soul-directed life.
Fun Fact from Michael: In 1998, I acted in a little black and white movie called The Invisibles which ended up at Sundance. It was on that film set that I first worked with Portia de Rossi as well as Robert Humphreys, who was our cinematographer. Rob has since shot many films with me, and The Shift was a ten year reunion for the three of us.
