Documentary on Meditation with College Students 
"A Semester Within: Some Students, A Teacher, Their Journey"

National survey data show that college students really want their college education to address their inner lives. They want to learn how to become more loving, how to be free of anxiety, and they want to discuss the purpose of their life. But students are sorely disappointed. Professors rarely discuss the meaning of life or the "big questions".

The feel of the film is inspirational. It's about the highest possibilites of the human spirit, whether in the college classroom or beyond.

At first, the students think they will die if they have to sit through 20 minutes of silence. Then they watch their lives become so much calmer. At first, they think they already are compassionate. But then they notice how full their minds are of judgmental thoughts, self-hatred, and negativity. They learn what true compassion is as they study the lives of the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Gandhi, and Holocaust survivor Victor Frankl.

Most of the information in the film comes through invterview clips with the professor, classroom footage, and the students' own reflections. However, we do need a voice-over narrator for about 20 minutes worth of comments. The film will be approximately 70 minutes in length.

Time is of the essence. The person we thought we could use for the project did not work out. Our deadline to receive the voice-over digital files is Wed, June 11, by noon. All we need is someone to narrate the content words that we have included in the script.

Thank you for considering this project.
