Morning and Evening of Life
with Wayne Dyer

Purpose: To understand and engage with your spiritual being .

About the Film "The Shift"

The Shift is a film by Dr. Wayne Dyer that explores the spiritual journey from personal ambitions in life to finding meaning and purpose in life.

 

The film presents the idea that in the second half of life, there’s a shift from being driven by ego ... emphasizing achievement and accumulation ...  to living a life of purpose and meaning. 

 

It follows the stories of three modern lives in crisis and their encounters with Wayne Dyer at a retreat center, where he shares the principles of the Tao and how to surrender to their true nature
 

The film invites viewers to reflect on their own lives, to question their priorities, and explore the possibilities of a profound shift from ego-centered pursuits to a life of purpose and fulfillment.
