Inspirational Videos

Gratitude Revealed is a remarkable cinematic documentary that has been forty years in the making. The film is a transformational cinematic experience aimed at teaching us how to lead a more meaningful life filled with gratitude. Through intimate interviews with everyday people, thought leaders, and personalities, Schwartzberg shows how gratitude is a proven path to overcoming the disconnection we often feel in our lives. Gratitude can help us reconnect with ourselves, our planet, and each other.


To our Readers,

We would like to share some exciting projects that our nonprofit partner, The Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI) is creating. Two important ones in the works are:

  1. A documentary-in-production: “The Energy that Heals”
  2. A comprehensive Learning Center

SDCRI and CHI have been collaborating for many years. Our SDCRI had the privilege of helping incubate CHI from its inception a decade ago. It remained under SDCRI’s umbrella until a few years ago when CHI established its own nonprofit 501 (c) 3 status.

The documentary “The Energy that Heals” is under production and will take another year or so until its release.
We enclose the link to CHI’s website with a recent Webinar that explains this exciting documentary project: 

When you have a chance, you can also explore CHI’s website which has excellent resources and detailed information about this cutting-edge nonprofit and the extensive work it is doing, in collaboration with several institutions and devoted scientists, physicians, practitioners of the many healing arts and healers. 

Please share with those you believe may benefit from this information or who may be interested in the topic.
With much gratitude and best wishes,
