Films for Your Soul: A Father's Day Dream (WATCH)

Walt Disney once said, "All our dreams are possible if we have the courage to pursue them." If you asked the average father what his dreams are, I doubt he would say he dreams of leaving his children every day to fight traffic and work for someone else. Unfortunately, this is the life most fathers are forced to live. But what if there was a way for fathers to work, play and be together with their families? Would it heal their soul? The souls of their children?

It is in this spirit that I share with you a four-minute excerpt from the film Echoes of Creation. While you watch, you will have the opportunity to contemplate a dream of well-being for the fathers of our world. Perhaps you will dream of a world where every willing father is provided with a piece of land to grow a garden, build a home and never have to be separated from his family in order to thrive. Perhaps you will dream of the day when children are nourished in mind, body and spirit because the most significant man in their life is free to stay home with them. No matter what your dreams might be, there is great power in creating and sharing them. If nothing else, it gives us a glimpse of hope for a possible future and perhaps, if we're lucky, the courage to pursue it.

To enhance your viewing experience: Find a quiet moment to fully immerse yourself without interruption. Expand to "full screen," HD 720p, and use quality speakers or stereo headphones. Please share your Father's Day dream in the comment section below. I would love to hear it and join you in dreaming it into reality.

"Embrace Everything" is an excerpt from Echoes of Creation by Emmy award-winning director Jan Nickman, featuring music by Grammy-nominated composer David Arkenstone and spoken word by Karen Hutton. A year in the making, it is part of a revolutionary new Wellness Experience™ film series that turns your TV, computer or mobile device into a virtual wellness center at the push of a button -- the "play" button. Each week, here in the GPS for the Soul section, I will share another excerpt from Echoes of Creation and its companion film, Sacred Earth, two of the Wellness Experience™ films that health and wellness experts are calling "a transcendent healing experience."

The full version of Echoes of Creation is designed for repeated play for years of enjoyment and is available as a streaming rental or download-to-own. The DVD and Blu-ray disc versions are also available at Sacred Earth Pictures and offer a "With or Without Spoken Word" option, Special Features and an optional '"Continuous Play" loop setting.
