It has been five years since I came across a documentary that introduced new science showing the link between our mind, body and health. That film was The Connection by Award winning Filmmaker and Journalist, Shannon Harvey. She released that film just as yoga studios were becoming mainstream in Dallas. I organized 11 public screenings of that film in the metroplex just due to consumer demand. Shannon has now released her second film, My Year of Living Mindfully and is offering free admission to view it online for 1 week, beginning now through Wednesday, June 3rd.
About the Film: Worried for the future mental health of her kids who were growing up amidst epidemics of stress, anxiety, depression and addiction, in a world-first experiment, Shannon recruited a team of scientists to put mindful meditation to the test. Hear from 18 experts in the area of mindfulness including :
Creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic & Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare and Society at UMass Medical School, Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD
Co-Founder of the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion and Author of Self-Compassion, Kristen Neff, PhD
Science Journalist and Author of Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman
