"Incite Happiness"

The “Incite Happiness” documentary follows noted author and spiritual teacher Lama Marut through a speaking tour in which he wisely and humorously shares his extensive practical knowledge of how to use proven ancient methods to produce a happier life in the modern world.

Augmented by many crowd-sourced interviews with people of all types and backgrounds, this becomes a sort of conversation around not only what it actually means to feel happy, but how to avoid the many pitfalls which often leave us further from our goal. Each intimate interview exposes deeply reflective and relatable questions of identity, doubt, and frustration in the face of trying to live a happy life. And each one, in turn, is illuminated by clever and yet highly practical methods which the viewer can take away and begin employing immediately. Through wit and wisdom, intimacy and insight, Incite Happiness offers a powerful antidote to the many self-destructive states of mind which are keeping us from living the happy life which is possible for all of us.
