Totally Enlightened!

Totally Enlightened! is a story of two BFFs trying to find inner peace in all the wrong places. I wrote this as a short film about 10 years ago when I moved to NYC and started dipping my toes in all the different yoga and spiritual communities that were hanging around, and I observed quite a few comedic moments in the process. What fun is life if it's taken so seriously, and what fun is yoga and the search for enlightenment if we are tight, tense, and clenched up from the inside out? The moral is what you make of it. My intention is to remind us all that the guru is within, and our intention will guide the way, whether we are sipping expensive organic tea blessed by a monk or not. Enjoy!

Big thanks to Demand Media, and all the Hollywood pros and NYC friends and Strala regulars who made this possible.
