American Yogi Movie Screening with Film Director, Steven Newmark, (ICP '75)
Sponsored by the CIIS Alumni University Lecture Series

American Yogi is a delightful autobiographical documentary about a nice Jewish boy from Miami who travels to San Francisco for the “Summer of Love” and returns a hippie. Later, as a successful but dissatisfied businessman, he reads Ram Dass’s iconic book Be Here Now, about the Indian Saint Maharajji. Inspired, Steven travels to India in hopes of discovering a more meaningful life. There he comes face to face with the mind-altering world of ancient India and has to choose between the miracles he sees and life as he knew it. Director Steven Newmark, Ph.D has been a practicing psychotherapist and the author of Before Becoming This, a book about Eastern Philosophy, that Deepak Chopra called “insightful and joyful.” Music by Grammy-nominated musicians Krishna Das and Jai Uttal.
