Molly Patterson may have been brought up with the proverbial silver spoon in her mouth but she has always known that there is something more to life. In fact, financial independence has always enabled her to take risks and follow her heart, as opposed to the herd. Always passionate about filmmaking, Molly effectively ran away to the circus at an early age and spent 20 years behind the camera in every capacity from gopher to gaffer. After working on the revolutionary documentary in Egypt, “The Mystery of the Sphinx,” which won an Emmy for NBC and was hosted by Charlton Heston, Molly pursued the spiritual path in earnest, beginning in the Yucatan and culminating with a trip to India for the turn of the Millennium and eventually to Hawaii where she had a glimpse of that elusive state that many have called enlightenment itself.
