Shannon claims her husband, Alex, has become obsessed with his quest for enlightenment. She claims this spiritual pilgrimage has cost them over $200,000 dollars and their successful business.

From following and obeying the teachings of controversial gurus and clairvoyants to believing in the existence of aliens, Shannon says she doesn’t recognize her husband. Alex claims he has not only become enlightened, but has come face to face with God himself, and has unlocked the answers to all of life’s greatest questions and mysteries. Alex claims his wife is just a negative person who would rather be a victim and live in misery, which he says creates huge roadblocks for their marriage. How does Alex respond when he is surprised and confronted by one of the most influential thinkers in the world, Dr. Deepak Chopra?
