ENCINITAS, Calif. — If you're feeling stressed, anxious or just out of touch with your humanity, it might be the right time to try meditation. 

Filmmakers Tom Cronin and Jacqui Fifer stopped by Morning Extra to talk about the power of daily meditation in both their own and others' lives.

"Through their unusual but powerful collaboration, personal story and ancient spiritual teaching harmonize with the future of technology, collapsing the past and future into a portal of ‘now’ where an enlightened planet awaits," said the filmmakers. 

You can watch "The Portal" a feature documentary, at La Paloma Theatre at 471 S Coast Highway 101 in Encinitas on Thursday, Nov. 21 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
