RASA BHAVA | A film by Shawn Zappo & Corey Frank

“Wake up Lovers, It is time to start the Journey! Let us kiss the ground & flow like a river towards the Ocean. Only love can lead the way.” – Rumi

‘Rasa Bhava’ is inspired by the ancient Indian theory of aesthetic, art, and the invocation of various emotional states.

This film will take you on a journey where surfing, true Yogic practice, and the beauty of nature interweave as they become ONE.

What each viewer will experience is unique to their own state of mind and perception.

As the director, I’ve tried to subtlety invoke certain emotions, but ultimately I hope the film is open to each viewer’s personal interpretation.

With that intention, I hope you find something that moves you in mind, body, and spirit.

Thank you for taking the time to view this film.

Peace & Blessings

Growing up in New Jersey, Shawn discovered and quickly immersed himself in the sub-culture of surfing and skateboarding in the mid 80’s. With a diverse and eclectic background, Shawn has walked the path of a competitive surfer, Hare Krsna monk, action sports industry player in NYC, DIY theology and religions major, and a touring punk rock musician. Now a father and self-proclaimed seeker of the “soul” of surfing, Shawn enjoys sessions with friends at uncrowded peaks along his home state’s shoreline and writing about his surf related experiences.
