Description

The Mindfulness Movement is a feature documentary that examines the growing number of people throughout society who believe mindfulness - a peaceful quality of attention anyone can develop by simply focusing on the present moment in a non-judgmental way - is the key to creating a healthier, happier world. For them, mindfulness is the way for anyone to make more moments matter in their lives and to help create a more compassionate, caring, and ethical society. The film follows the emotionally compelling stories of four main characters (Jewel, Dan Harris, Sharon Salzberg and George Mumford) who reveal their personal hardships and explain how mindfulness transformed their lives.
