Special Screening

IYF 2018 will be presenting the film, “PGS – Intuition is your Personal Guidance System”, a 90-minute movie detailing one man’s search for a voice that saved his life.

The search took Bill Bennett to some of the most remote and sacred places on the planet, to talk to holy men and mystics, including IYF’s Founder Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji and IYF Director Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswatiji, sadhus and saints, research scientists and quantum physicists and psychiatrists.

He discovered that intuition is part of a subtle energetic system that seeks to protect us and guide us along our life’s journey so that we can achieve our true  purpose – and lead a life of fulfillment and contentment. He called it our PGS – our Personal Guidance System.

The movie discusses what intuition is, how it works, and how you can access it. It details a five step process to tap into your intuitive powers.
