About the Film
Dalai Lama Awakening presents the profound and life-changing journey of innovative Western thinkers who travel to India to meet with the Dalai Lama to solve many of the world's problems. The result was an inner transformation of the participants, as well as what audiences report is a personal transformational experience for those who watch the film.

Aside from featuring His Holiness the Dalai Lama (and narration by actor Harrison Ford), Dalai Lama Awakening features innovative thinkers like Dr. Michael Beckwith (from The Secret), quantum physicists Fred Alan Wolf and Amit Goswami (from What the Bleep Do We Know), Harry Morgan Moses, Revolutionary Social Scientist Jean Houston, and others.
