Can't Wait To Watch The Movie?

I was genuinely moved by Berni’s Journey and I loved the cinema-tography – now I want to go to India!


An incredibly beautiful movie of one woman’s courageous journey to awaken to her true self – an inspiration for anyone seeking peace, harmony and joy in their lives.


Berni’s Journey reminded me that we are all perfectly imperfect trying to figure life out, so be bold and take action to be the person you were always meant to be.
