E-Motion Picture Magic

A Movie Lover’s Guide to Healing and Transformation.

Birgit Wolz, Ph.D.

Book format: EPUB & MOBI eBook format.

Like no other medium before it, the popular movie presents the potential of a new power for illuminating the depth of human experience. E-Motion Picture Magic employs that power as a tool to increase consciousness.

Cinema therapy offers more perspective on life, prompting the viewer to step back from his or her problems in order to feel less insecure, worried, or discontented. Using films for self-improvement allows a shift in perspective when viewed with conscious awareness.

The use of movies for personal growth and healing carries forward a long-standing connection between storytelling and self-reflection that may date back to the beginnings of spoken language. The movie experience used in very specific ways can have significant benefits for those who are willing to apply themselves using E-Motion Picture Magic that can be both beneficial as well as enjoyable.


“Imagine! Using the power of movies to discover and explore your important life issues. What a creative and enchanting way to gain perspective and make the changes you yearn for. Birgit Wolz’s innovative E-Motion Picture Magic effectively guides you through this process, throwing in generous doses of fun as well.”

“Clearly a love of movies and the desire to help people have inspired Dr. Wolz. Read E-Motion Picture Magic and you will never watch movies the same way again. Entertainment fueling personal growth is an intriguing path to enriching one’s life and hopefully to creating a better world.”
