NEW: Finding Happiness
Asha appears in a new film
This film offers a thoughtful look at how we can find greater happiness and meaning in our lives. The film interviews many residents of the Ananda spiritual community. Through the eyes of a visiting fictional reporter, we hear how people have faced challenges, worked together, and found attitudes that can help anyone, whenever they may live, to experience greater happiness as well.
Asha is among other long-time residents of the Ananda intentional interviewed in this film. She describes the death of a close friend—not only her spirit of acceptance and love, but how she touched those who spent the final few weeks at her bedside.
A brief synopsis of the film: An investigative reporter (Elisabeth Rohm, Law & Order, Oscar-nominated American Hustle) is sent, not too willingly, to report on a spiritual community in California. What she finds surprises her, and gradually changes her life. Filmed on location in Ananda communities in California, Italy, and India, this is a true story of real people who are living sustainable, harmonious lives — based on ideals that can help us find happiness as well, wherever we may live.
