Fellow American

Sickened by political division and conflict, a filmmaker travels across the US in search of  a different story.
A love letter to a troubled nation, one face at a time.

Based on 40 years' experience, I write about applying meditation and modern Buddhism to improve and transform our everyday lives and societies. I try to make it accessible to everyone anywhere who wants more inner peace and profound tools to help our world, not just Buddhists. Do make comments any time and I'll write you back!

  1. I felt a deep love for each one of them, you perfectly paused on each to give an opportunity to really SEE them. Very beautiful.

  2. Only after the age of 50….did I realise that there are divine blessings.
    I began Buddhist lessons at the age of 47…byt it took 3 whole years before I began to see results through meditation.
    So my advice is hang in there and persevere with your teachings and mediation.

  3. Absolutely marvelous. The most perfect and eloquent response to all the hatred and division. Love shimmers and shines through every colour and shadow of this film. The steady gaze of each person is inexpressibly beautiful, as is the gaze that beholds them. You can feel the connection between us all, it’s palpable. Thank you for making his film. And dear Luna, thank you for sharing it.

    1. Robert, I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I agree, each face is so expressive, and it’s lovely to just have time to appreciate them. It’s quite easy to love people when you get to see them this way. So good to hear your comments. Thank you!

    1. Lyn, what a lovely idea. That’s exactly what I hoped for when I made the film!

  4. This is heartbreaking, yet so incredibly beautiful and hopeful. It will remain in my heart and mind. Thank you.

    1. Pat, your comment is very moving to me. I’m glad the film touched your heart.
