From Executive Producers Deepak Chopra and Jewel, comes THE MINDFULNESS MOVEMENT, a feature documentary (100 minutes) 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. Featuring Deepak Chopra, Jewel, Dan Harris, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Daniel Goleman, Sharon Salzberg, George Mumford, Tim Ryan, Bill George, Diana Winston, Richard Davidson and more! 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. Woven between these journeys are profiles of the leaders, history and science behind the movement, as well as looks at the many places where mindfulness is already helping to improve society, including schools (from inner-cities to Harvard Business School), Fortune 500 companies, police forces, prisons, network newsrooms, neuroscience laboratories, therapist offices, sports teams, military veterans groups and the health care industry. This documentary is even an interactive experience since viewers will have two chances to close their eyes and practice during brief guided meditations led by well-known mindfulness teachers. Whether someone is just discovering mindfulness or has been practicing for years, theyre sure to learn something new and be inspired to share the benefits of mindfulness with others as THE MINDFULNESS MOVEMENT continues to grow.
