The Shift

“Thoroughly unprepared, we take the step into the afternoon of life. Worse still, we take this step with the false presupposition that our truths and our ideals will serve us as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning, for what was great in the morning will be little at evening and what in the morning was true, at evening will have become a lie.” - Carl Gustav Jung


In this compelling film, Wayne explores the spiritual journey From Ambition to Meaning. The powerful shift from the ego constructs that we’re taught early in life by parents and society—which promote achievement and accumulation—are shown in contrast to a life of Meaning, focused on serving and giving back. Through the intertwined stories of an overachieving businessman, a mother of two seeking her own expression in the world, and a director trying to make a name for himself, this entertaining film not only inspires, but also teaches us how to create a life of Meaning and purpose.
