Through a global journey the film shares wisdom found in traditional cultures and from the cutting edge science that is now, for the first time, exploring human happiness. In addition to hearing from leading neuroscientists and psychologists in the field, it explores personal stories from around the world. Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcMQmuvzPmI
Jinju Dasalla, PhD. holistic educator and guide, divine movement artist, master of joyful inspiration, is truly unique in the world of personal growth and relationship coaching. Dr Dasalla employs an exquisite blend of art and science in movement, healing and contemplative practices to transcend limiting beliefs and create new, inspired ways of living and being. Her classes, workshops and private coaching consistently bring forth elements of joy, play, compassion and curiosity.
After earning her doctorate in neuroscience from the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine in 2006, Dr. Dasalla has continued her training through multiple programs including Landmark Education, Newfield Network’s accredited coach training program, Magis Group’s OPS ™ certification program, and the Nia Technique. What has provided one of the biggest breakthroughs for her own personal healing and empowerment, however, are the movement and dance arts. Specifically, the art and practice of poi and fire dancing had become a vehicle for much unexpected healing and transformation and she now shares the art as part of her practice. She currently offers workshops introducing people to the powerful neuro-therapeutic benefits, and the unique self-expression that comes with engaging this quickly growing exercise and meditation practice merging play, movement and dance to create what is known as the “Flow Arts”.
