313. Ten Years into Her Career, Two Talents Surfaced and Collided
For more than 10 years she’d enjoyed being a therapist, counseling individual clients and couples. Then, she hit her own ceiling. She knew she needed to grow, when two talents from her childhood surfaced and collided.
Dr. Lana Marconi is a Canadian documentary filmmaker. Her three consciousness raising feature films are: The Wellness Story, The Resonance, and New Human, New Earth, New Humanity. She has written and produced more than 50 healthy living television shows on Rogers TV in Canada, and conducted many independent interviews. Her writing has been a published in Canada’s Vitality magazine. One of her inspiring stories was published in the Wake Up and Live the Life You Love book series, which included Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dyer and others, and became a Barnes & Noble bestseller.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
“Two talents I’ve been developing over the course of my life have been storytelling and creativity. Those two have collided and, as a result, I am making documentary films. It’s very exciting because I get to meet conscious people who are doing extraordinary things on the planet and are making a difference in the world.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
“I’m trained as a therapist, working in the health field. I was never a documentary filmmaker, and never went to school to become one. After counseling clients for over 10 years, I got to a point in my career—we all do—where we hit our own ceilings and need to grow. I wanted to reach more people. I was doing one-on-one counseling or couples counseling, and that’s great, but I wanted to make a bigger difference. For me, media was that answer.”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“One of the things about being a documentary filmmaker is that I’ve learned to stay very open to hearing what people have to say. I try to suspend my judgment. I like to think of myself as making films by and for the people, and presenting people’s perspectives, letting the audience judge. I’m constantly learning, constantly going back to school to learn other things. I don’t think we should ever stop learning, because there’s so much out there that we just don’t know.”
