Despite eye rolls and groans that tend to meet the words "self-help," highly successful books turned films like The Secret continue to prove that there's a wide market out there for being lectured at by well-intentioned people way more wholesome and fulfilled than you'll ever be (regardless of what they tell you).
Just don't follow all of them into a sweat lodge.
While I await the inevitable lightning bolt that I just earned for that crass joke, go ahead and watch this promotional trailer for the film I'm about to discuss in brief:
Good stuff, huh? You know, if you like that kinda thing and all.
But wait, yea lovers of intangible things that are good for your soul, there's more: Two Colorado Springs-based women, Molly Lord and Kathleen Haden, are featured in the film.
From the film's website, here are some brief bio notes on each woman:
Feathers in both Lord and Haden's caps: their co-cast members. They include Jack Canfield (the Chicken Soup for the Soul guy), Marci Shimoff (Happy for No Reason, Love for No Reason) and John Gray (Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus).
The film was produced and written by genre guru Robin Jay (The Art of the Business Lunch: Building Relationship Between 12 and 2).
Prior to film time, there's an optional VIP party ($50, tickets here) at 5:30 that includes a copy of the film, gift bag, apps and much more. Regular admission is $9.
Local musician Chuck Pyle will perform prior to the screening, as well, and the film will be followed by a cast meet-and-greet.
A portion of the night's proceeds will go to AspenPointe's Peer Navigator Program, which provides support for military families.
