How Do You Do What You Do?
Working with suicidal people who have borderline personality disorder
December 14, 2015
A few years ago I was approached by producer and director Larry Kasanoff who asked me if I would agree to be in his documentary: "Mindfulness: Be Happy Now" together with the famed Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh, author and mindfulness advocate Deepak Chopra, actress Sharon Stone,and the "Dog Whisperer" Cesar Millan.
From his IMDB profile Larry seemed like an unlikely mindfulness documentary producer. His resume was full of high action movies like "Mortal Kombat" and "Terminator 2", not the stuff of mindful reflection, but Larry told me that he has been a mindfulness practitioner for years and I welcomed the opportunity to help spread awareness on the practice of mindfulness. The documentary is finally out and well worth watching. I realize that I am not impartial in saying this because I am in it, but I would say so even if I had not made the final cut.
