The new documentary HEAL, directed, written, and produced by Kelly Noonan and Adam Schomer, dissects the incredible relationship between spirituality and science that yogis seek to optimize on a daily basis. “The intention behind HEAL is to inspire, empower, and inform,” says Kelly Noonan Gores, the film’s director. “We are living in an epidemic of fear and stress. I wanted not only to shine a light on our bodies’ brilliant capacity for healing, but also present the scientific evidence proving our beliefs, thoughts, emotions have a direct and profound influence on our genetic expression. I want to include inspiring real-life stories to show us what is truly possible when it comes to healing, even when we are told there is no hope.”
The film tells the unbelievable stories and healing journeys of real people who were able to cure chronic pain and overcome terminal illnesses using the “power of belief.” Leading scientists, master teachers, bestselling authors, and mind-body experts including Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Bruce Lipton, Michael Bernard Beckwith, and Anita Moorjani lend their insight to the film.
Look for this documentary, which made its world premiere June 1 at the Illuminate Film Festival in Sedona, Arizona, at film festivals across the country this summer and fall.
