About this movie

Mindfulness: the art of simply being present. From Oprah to Phil Jackson to Anderson Cooper, it’s an art practiced by some of the world’s most successful people. Brought to the west by Zen Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hanh, who was once nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., mindfulness has recently gained enormous mainstream popularity in both the media and in mental health treatment. Featuring testimonies from Deepak Chopra, Thich Nhat Hanh, Sharon Stone, Oliver Stone, Cesar Milan, and many more, this documentary shows you how to embrace mindfulness in your own life.

I have studied and benefitted from the teaching of equanimity, which is a very close brother of the teaching of mindfulness. This documentary, which is a series of commentaries from some very interesting people will help most to understand the first step on the road to a more fulfilled life. This documentary isn't the answer, as that comes from within, but it is a great instruction of how to start on the path.

Watched this the night before a big event. Helped me find some inner peace and resolve to make mindfulness a regular part of my life.

Excellent documentary. A good beginner's guide and also some more guidance for those already on the path.
