August 4, 2018

I’m happy to be announce I’ll be hosting the Tucson premiere of The Doctor From India, a film documenting the extraordinary life of Ayurvedic physician Dr Vasant Lad. Members of the APAA – Ayurveda Professional Association of Arizona will be present for a short question and answer session on the ancient science of Ayurveda following the film. Tickets for this ONE TIME screening can be purchased at The Loft Cinema. The film will be showing Saturday, August 4th at 1pm. Tickets may be purchased in advance through the Loft Cinema’s website and are $10, or $8 for Loft members.


THE DOCTOR FROM INDIA is a meditative and immersive portrait of the life and work of Dr. Vasant Lad, the holistic health pioneer who first brought the ancient medical practice of Ayurveda from India to the west in the late 1970s. Integrating his gifts as both a healer and a mystic, Dr. Lad has dedicated his life to sharing what is considered the oldest healthcare system on earth in the complex medical landscape of the United States. This is the beautiful and inspiring story of a man who has for decades been quietly at the center of a revolutionary movement to change the way we care for our bodies and our spirits. Directed by Jeremy Frindel (One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das) with an elegant musical score by Rachel Grimes, and featuring Deepak Chopra, Robert Svoboda, David Frawley, and Claudia Welch.
