Discover The Gift – Documentary Review

Discover The gift – Documentary Review

Best known for directing 3000 Miles to Graceland, (2001) and Executive Producer – The Road to Graceland (2001) comes the unlikely producer, director, co-author and co-creator Demian Lichtenstein, who brilliantly and stunningly choreographed a feature-length documentary, Discovery the Gift from the book of the same name co-written with his sister, Shajen (pronounced Cheyenne)  Joy Azis.

The book and documentary explores the basic and vital reality that as human-beings we each possess a unique gift, a purpose and mission that our soul seeks to express and fulfill. Discovering your unique gift on a conscious level is the soul’s purpose and mission – It’s why you are here. It is why the soul incarnates.  Knowing the depth and breadth of one’s unique gift is key to experience joy, empowerment, fulfillment, freedom and unconditional love in ways beyond one’s imagination.

Demian and Shajen narrate and present an easy road map for a journey of self-discovery that will change your life forever. Sharing their personal and most poignant heartfelt stories of tragedy and redemption, this brother and sister are joined by many of today’s most influential transformational leaders, who inspire, guide and ultimately assist you to begin your journey to find your Gift to live the life you desire and intended when you chose to incarnate this time.

Transformational leaders featured include:

  • His Holiness the Dalai Lama
  • Michael Bernard Beckwith
  • His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
  • Dr. Barbara De Angelis
  • Jack Canfield
  • Mark Victor Hansen
  • Janet Bray Attwood
  • David ‘Avocado’ Wolfe
  • Niurka
  • Sir Ken Robinson
  • Bill Harris
  • Mary Morrissey
  • And nineteen more luminaries of note in the transformational living field

It was uncanny how I learned about this ‘must see’ documentary nine days after its  release June 14, 2011. One of my former clients in New Jersey sent an email asking if I had heard of it. She had heard their presentation at a book signing and bought the DVD. No, I had not heard of it. The next email, she stated, it is about everything you say. I sent a copy; you will receive it in two days. The next email stated that Lichtenstein and Aziz would be in Phoenix for a presentation and book signing.

In the mean-time I listened to the trailer on their website and was intrigued. I went to the presentation. The DVD arrived the same day, however, I did not have time to watch. Their authentic, genuine and heartfelt presentation convinced me that as my client stated, the documentary presents what I know to be true.

Two days later, I had time and was spell bound by the genuine and heartfelt presentation of their personal journey to love and wholeness. I ordered copies for gifts. One other anecdote, one of my current clients had become stuck in his journey of self-discovery.  He resisted allowing the door to his purpose and mission to open – fear and anger was his raison d’etre (reason to be).  I loaned him the DVD. After watching Discover the Gift, he was excited and enthusiastic; he realized keeping himself from knowing his purpose and mission was a form of self-punishment. He is now enjoying the first step of living his purpose and mission.  You can too.  ###
