satori x bahus meyer
In a random moment of grokkingness…
Satori tells me how she feels about writing:
Out of all the other things I’m doing, the writing is the only one that doesn’t have a deadline, but, I can’t stop doing it to do the other things, ..because I love it so much. It’s like, overwhelming. I can’t stop writing. – Satori
[link to a page of just this – as continual replay]
We’ve learned so much from Satori, and her family. (here’s her dad on productivity – hope to add more soon)
One thing in particular that stands out is this story.
Satori had been coming to the be you house for maybe a week, maybe two. On the way home one day, she was telling me that she wasn’t feeling very productive.
So we started talking about what that meant, what she saw as productive, what was missing, for her to feel/say that.
She expressed the feeling she would get in school, having turned in homework/worksheets.
So we started talking about what was on those worksheets and in that homework. While she always talks about loving her teachers, and can tell story upon story about them, she said she didn’t really remember what any of the assignments were about. That paperwork, that somehow, on handing it over to someone else, had been making her feel – productive.
Then we started talking about what she’d been up to the last couple of weeks.
Well – she was about to finish her first novel. She’d read close to a book a day. She shared many other things, along with – she’d been taking more walks with her folks.
Great insight. Perhaps we get so caught up in productivity, we forget the artist inside. Asking ourselves what matters most, matters.
Satori is the narrator, and appears, in our set of vision videos.
And here she is in one of our vision videos:

dec 2016 – Satori film on mental health
The story follows a girl named Eir who has the power to control people’s minds and change events by painting a new scene. She uses the power to help those with mental health issues to keep them safe, get them help, or reach out to them to help. No one knows she can do this except for a boy with schizophrenia who can hear her voice when she helps him. Problems arise when another character that Eir thinks is a friend exposes her
“I think I just found it was a great way to tell stories,” she said of filmmaking. It combines elements of words, music and images. Satori is also a writer and actor. “Painting Fate,” was the first movie that she wrote, directed, edited, filmed and cast. The idea for her latest project came from a thought she posted on Facebook last February, it was the launching point for what the film would become.
“I contacted a bunch of my friends that were struggling with things, or had in the past and overcame these struggles, and asked them, what would you tell your younger self? What would you tell someone who is struggling with this?”
She compiled that information and those words from her friends would later form the monologues and other parts of the script. Satori has seen the effects of depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and bullying within her friends. She too has faced some of these struggles.
I want to create conversations,” Satori said, “I don’t want people to be afraid to talk about these things and for people that have these problems to know that it’s OK.”
