at-the-table.jpg Not since The Secret’s release two and half years ago has there been so much buzz for a new movie coming out in the human-potential, self-help field. The one causing all the stir right now is called The Compass.

I flew to LA to see the world premier of The Compass last Sunday night. A crowd of excited people were there, as were celebrities, the media, and more.

The executive producer of the film, John Spencer Ellis, made us wait for the film by having a rock band play, making announcements, and offering everyone plenty of food and drink. Since I’m in training and strictly watching my food intake, all I wanted to see was the film.

Once the movie began, you knew you were in for a treat. The production value of The Compass is tops. The soundtrack is original music that I’ll want the CD of. The acting by the lead character is riveting. And the experts throughout the film — from John Assaraf, Brian Tracy, Les Brown, Tammy Kling, and Marie Diamond to, well, me — all have wise things to stay.

There are several unforgettable moments in the movie. I won’t spoil it for you by telling you what they are, but rest assured you’ll watch and you will remember.

I strongly encourage you to see The Compass. This is the kind of movie we need more of, to feed our brain and our soul with life-affirming thoughts and energy. It’s far more practical than The Secret, but still feels good, too.

It’s shipping on DVD today. Go here to order it right now:

Ao Akua,


PS – Above blurred pic was taken at the premier in Anaheim. At the table with me (I’m bottom far right corner) are online hypnosis expert Wendi Friesen, author/healer Jennifer McLean, PGA pro Robb Nunn, and Vegas stage hypnotist Scott Lewis. They all loved The Compass, too.

    I attended the premiere in California and what Joe says is true. What I like most about the film, it’s refreshingly simple. The wisdom can be practiced by anyone, no matter where you are on this journey called life. And the music? Pleasurable. I already have 2 copies of the DVD (just had an insight: great Valentine’s gift) and will order the music CD. Breathtaking enjoyable and uplifting. BTW, it was Joe’s tweets on Twitter that gave me the heads-up @the premiere..and I live in LA!

    Hi Joe! Speaking of healing. I met this healer who has an uncanny ability. He put up his hand and did a quick scan. He said have you had problems with your lungs? I said yes, how did you know? He said cause I’m a healer. Now I didn’t cough I dont’ smoke, my voice isn’t raspy and he knew. I then said, “You were born with it, right?” He said yes! I checked his website and I was right.I guessed he was born with it! Yes, it is a wonderful, mysterious, and blessed world we live in. I’ll have to tell you the time me and my friend had to “save” Les Brown from a potential accident. Joe, thank you for all your continuous blessings!

    Recently, I cleared my path only to find I lacked a sense of direction. Life is funny that way, you know. A lot of the time, the noise and ensuing chaos in one’s life provides wonderful cover for a lack of direction or purpose. I had identified with my chaos for so long that when I got rid of it, I wondered who I was, and equally important, where I was going. I loved The Secret. The movie changed my life, changed me! However, I knew there had to be more than the simply the LOA involved to accomplish what I truly desired in my life. Thanks to all the teachers in The Compass for providing incredible insights and information I can apply across the board in my life now. I am so eternally grateful to Joe and everything he so generously shares with us! – C. Hope

    Hi Joe

    I truly appreciate you being a part of my dream – The Compass!

    I just learned that a lady was very sad and depressed (and contemplating suicide). Her friend gave her a copy of The Compass. After watching it, she instantly snapped out of her slump and began to make plans for a fulfilling life! She loves the pencil story in The Compass. Thanks for that!

    Let’s chat soon!

    I liked the Compass. But I felt like there were really alot of great movie lately that have been over looked. I really liked The Moses code, The Opus and others. I hope people will continue to make more of these movies. They will change the world.
