~~~ What People Are Saying About Discover The Gift ~~~
“The most important spiritual transformational film on the planet”–Mark Victor Hansen, co-creator Chicken Soup For the Soul
“Discover The Gift is what people have been waiting for…”–Richard Cohn, distributor and publisher of “The Secret”
“Discover The Gift is more than just an exquisite and uplifting film—it is a unique, transformational experience that will expand the mind, heart and consciousness
of anyone who sees it. For the first time ever, the inner journey of personal discovery has been captured by a filmmaker and presented with the highest level of mastery and artistry,
resulting in a visual and emotional adventure that should not be missed . We are in a time of great acceleration on the planet, and I believe this film
will help millions of people ask and answer the essential questions: “Who am I, and what am I doing here?” .
‘Discover the Gift’ is a gift for our time. It is to film what Oprah has been to television. It is in perfect alignment with my own work and life mission,
and it is a true honor to be a part of it.”

BELIEFNET.COM editor Nell Minow has reviewed Discover the Gift including a Q&A of her interview with Demian and Shajen noting:
“Discover the Gift” is an extraordinary new documentary, book, blog, and CD that reaches from the broadest universal dreams to the most intimate, personal insights, with appearances from powerful lessons from authors, educators, activists, artists, and icons including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Jack Canfield, Janet Attwood, Terry Tillman, David `Avocado` Wolfe, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Mark Victor Hansen, and Niurka and more.
It is the passion project of a brother and sister, filmmaker Demian Lichtenstein and educator Shajen Joy Aziz. Part of the pleasure of speaking to them was the way they brought all they have learned about recognizing and respecting the gifts in others as well as ourselves to the conversation. And it is impossible not to feel privileged by the way they have opened up their own lives as a part of their quest to bring this message to everyone.
