Islands of Inner Peace (2010)


Experience an innovative way to life-enhancing benefits while connecting with what matters most. These short, mood-shifting films help create daily “islands” of inner peace in the midst of “oceans” filled with distractions, obligations and stress.

Each of these inspiring short films combines the wise words from a respected humanitarian leader with music composed specifically to accompany those thoughts and gorgeous footage from the world of nature. The result is an intoxicating brew of aesthetic beauty designed to mesmerize you into a few minutes of rare inner calm and renewal, offering benefits that can often last for hours.

With music by Emmy Award-winning composer-producer Gary Malkin and images by award-winning cinematographer David Fortney, these innovative gems of mindfulness practice are designed to nourish by opening the heart, inspiring the soul and awakening the spirit.

Having watched these films back to back, I found that each expressed a different facet of my being, bringing me back to the essence of who I am while giving me ample opportunity to contemplate the nature of who I am. Highly recommend for those times when you feel less than your best.
