Discover the Gift by Demian Lichtenstein and Shajen Joy Aziz
(DVD and VOD released in the US March 2011, Random House/Harmony will be releasing the hardcover companion book in May 2011)
The Gift is a feature length documentary motion picture and companion book about transformation and the awakening of our connection to the Whole. The Gift begins by examining the nature of consciousness as not only self-awareness but as a sense of total connection with the Whole of existence. The more one feels this connection, the more one is able to act coherently towards the Whole. The less a person feels connected to the creative Source of life, the more likely it is that person will become unconsciously destructive towards his- or herself, as well as towards the Whole. Diverse people can be connected with higher common denominators such as recognizing that fundamentally we are all connected as one, the Earth is a living organism, helping those in need globally, acknowledging a sense of the sacred connection in everything and the importance of global awakening for a positive future.
The 95 minute motion picture Discover the Gift stars transformational teachers and leaders such as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Jack Canfield, and Mark Victor Hansen of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, Michael Bernard Beckwith, featured speaker of The Secret and author of Spiritual Liberation; and Marianne Williamson, author of Return to Love and teacher of A Course in Miracles. Other luminary spiritual leaders and accomplished educators featured in Discover the Gift include Shajen Joy Aziz, Dr. Sonia Powers, Dr. Sue Morter, Dr. Terry Cole-Whittaker, Mary Manin Morrissey, Dr. Barbara De Angelis, David “Avocado” Wolf, Nuirka Hernandez, Cheryl Hunter, John Castagnini, and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
The film was created, produced and directed by Demian Lichtenstein with Executive Producers, Shajen Joy Aziz and Peter Ferentinos and Co- Producer Cherif Aziz.
Discover the Gift introduces The Gift, a compelling and broadly appealing concept that encapsulates the wisdom one needs to unlock their fullest potential. It’s a means to finding happiness and peace by living the life they were meant to live. This whole-life path is for anyone seeking a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
Though a great deal of attention has been focused by a multitude of books and movies on the Law of Attraction, the other Universal Spiritual Laws which govern our existence have been left out. Discover the Gift reveals how all Universal Laws and Principles work in combination with each other as well as how knowledge of only one law leaves individuals without the basic understanding of how all Universal Spiritual Laws and Principles work together, with integrity, to form a unified filed of consciousness.

“Both the film and motivational book Discover the Gift unveil the basic reality that there are Gifts in all circumstances if we look for them; they are simply awaiting our discovery.” says Aziz. “Most importantly, the book illuminates that inside each of us is an extraordinary Gift seeking to express itself. And that the degree to which individuals discover, nurture, educate and allow the miracle of their Gift to live is in direct proportion to the degree to which they will experience joy, power, fulfillment, freedom, and unconditional love.”
Said Demian Lichtenstein, “What you have put into the unified field of Energy is what you will receive from the unified field of Energy. This is the Infinity Feedback Loop of Creation. When one discovers and shares their gift, it inspires others to do the same and thus all become active players in the planetary shift in consciousness.”
