Certified yoga therapist Laura Jane Mellencamp talks about reaching for the wrong things in life in the upcoming film, Showing Up: Dare To Live From Your Heart.
Showing Up encourages you to live a life that matters to you, to show up.
The film offers insightful interviews with teachers, ministers, therapists, and others who illuminate the journey from your head to your heart. They explore why we struggle to slow down, even when we say we must. A meaningful life requires we move out of our comfort zone, they explain. Do you wonder what gets in the way of taking your next daring step? They have answers.
Central ideas are inspired by the book Unfolding: Slow Down, Drop In, Dare More, written by Downers Grove local, Nancy Hill. From Unfolding, “Courageous choices that proclaim our essence are both risky and rewarding. They reveal who we are.” Heartfelt living is not a place we’ll reach someday. It happens in the moment. It happens when we show up. The film is directed by local Keith Kelly.
In the film, you will also meet people like you who face their fear and keep going.

Follow the journey of a classical violinist who longs to be a rockstar. It seems impossible. Could it happen?
