Ilchi Lee's latest film, “CHANGE: The Brain and Divinity,” was met with warm applause at a Red Carpet Event at the Sedona Creative Life Center on Thursday, October 9, 2014, where nearly 200 people gathered.
The film, which is a sequel to last year’s “CHANGE: The LifeParticle Effect,”
explores the idea that the potential for human greatness lies within the human brain. Executive Producer Ilchi Lee calls that greatness divinity, and suggests that everyone has the potential to be great if they know how to use that aspect of their brain.
The event, hosted by the Sedona Meditation Center and local media company Change Your Energy, began with a buffet in the center's courtyard and a book signing by author Rebecca Tinkle. Tinkle's novel, "The Secret of Mago Castle,"
is a spiritual adventure set in Sedona, AZ. Inspired by Ilchi Lee’s Brain Education method, the book suggests what the destiny of the human race would be if it fulfilled its highest potential.
Audience members were comprised of Sedona Meditation Center students, fans of Ilchi Lee's works including his bestselling book "The Call of Sedona" and his first film “CHANGE: The LifeParticle Effect,” out of town visitors and members of the Sedona community.
One attendee named Lonnie, who years ago sustained a brain injury that left him with intermittent memory loss, said, "I had just seen the flyer for the film that afternoon and was intrigued. The film reminded me that I am more than my memories. I am able to heal my brain, expand and grow forward no matter what the past held for me."
The film's main premise is what Ilchi Lee coined the Brain Operating System or BOS, which he compared to a computer operating system. With animations and dramatic reenactments, the film described five principles on which the BOS runs, which by practicing them, can be the key to unlocking the true potential of humankind.
These concepts were reinforced by real-world examples of people applying the principles of BOS, both in the United States and in Lee’s native South Korea. Spiritual and brain education thought leaders weighed in on what BOS could mean for our lives and our future.
After the film, Ilchi Lee gave a talk about his personal journey from Korea to Sedona via Los Angeles and the early struggles with school studies that inspired him to seek a better way to educate the whole person—body, mind and soul.
Rebecca Tinkle concluded the evening with a reading of a passage from her novel, reinforcing the film's message of hope for humanity's ability to awaken to their divine consciousness in the present era.
