Change is not only possible- it is necessary
12 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary presents the science of personal change. It challenges viewers to imagine of a life of health and happiness and then act upon this belief until the change they seek becomes a reality. The use of imagination to facilitate change is not a woo-woo concept. Rather it is rooted in the modern understanding of human behavior, the human body and the human mind. The film is anchored with the framework of a true story of a man who put in prison for manslaughter. While there he finds that prison is not so much a place as a state of believing. He learns that he built his own behavioral and psychological prison long before he was incarcerated. He finds personal freedom and fulfillment while he is in jail. Various experts including Candace Pert, Thomas Moore, Joe Dispenza, Debbie Ford, and others offer insights into what is happening to change this person's life. I highly recommend this film. It will appeal to the same audience that enjoyed "What the Bleep Do We Know?"
