"The personal emotional you is the doorway to enlightenment, not the obstacle."

    Sage Harbor Films is dedicated to telling stories that explore new avenues of consciousness and inspire new conversations about spirituality. We are long-time spiritual practitioners, former seekers, and intrepid filmmakers. Our films come out of our personal experiences, reflecting on the ways we were seekers of enlightenment, and then asking questions that can help bring new perspectives for people who are open to ask, what if? Our films have been selected for film festivals, special screenings, and viewed and downloaded by seekers around the world. 

    Watch Tears of the Buddha

    Our first film was Tears of the Buddha: Spirituality & Emotions. Tears explores the spiritual path through the lens of emotion. Director Joel Lesko interviews modern Buddhistic, non-dual oriented teachers to find out how their teachings apply in daily life - are emotions an impediment to spiritual growth? What about so-called unspiritual emotions like anger and hate? Do emotions trap a seeker in the personal self?

    • The BuddhaFest full-day screening in DC

      230 people attended the BuddhaFest full-day screening  in Washington DC. It was a terrible rainy day, the third in a row. I think people were pushed to the brink by the weather and also the depression of the government shut-down. Maybe that's why the event was such a success.  I showed the...
