The movie unfolds in three chapters as follows:
Chapter 1: Decoding Mindfulness
Defines what mindlessness and mindfulness is and how the neuroscience and concept of neuroplasticity play into the practice.
Chapter 2: Journey to Mindfulness
Takes you on a journey of eight lessons learned from mindfulness—like the art of not-trying, increasing awareness, not identifying with your thoughts, the choice of being mindful or mindless, noticing new things, the solution to ego, stress, and mindful eating.
Chapter 3: Stories of Mindfulness
Takes us on an emotional journey discovering how the practice is being used by the military and teen groups around the world. The movie concludes with Jon Kabat-Zinn calls for us to “grow down and become planetary adults.”
Our goal was to create a completely secular film for the general public audience that have no background in mindfulness. A fun, easy to understand film where they can walk away with at least one or two golden nuggets to apply immediately.
Host a screening of The Mindfulness Movie
Schools, corporations, organizations, prisons, private groups, sport teams, medical facilities, and everyday people are using mindfulness today.
Leading scientific and medical experts are turning their attention to the
art and practice of mindfulness—something every human being on this planet has at their
disposal for free. It’s a tool that has proven a powerful healing and life-balancing
therapy for centuries, and is now one that modern medical science has demonstrated
has significant health benefits for the mind and body. It’s also a powerful tool for
encouraging compassion in our world.

Spread the word about mindfulness; educating and learning while being entertained.
Any school auditorium, large classroom, community room, meeting room, or corporate lounge is all possible places to host your screening. A screen and projector or large TV is all that is needed. Even a local movie theater may donate screen time or host the film
The Mindfulness Movie is just over an hour, so even at a lunch break can be a great time to host your screening or during a class, at the end of a meeting, or even before a special service.
If you are a university or college, then cater your screening to students, but parents and faculty should also be welcome to check it out. In a corporate setting, train you leaders first with discussion after and then host another screening for the staff. Try to grow your screening into a large event, social media, emails, and flyers can be used to help advertise.
