A Mindful Choice

Runtime: 72m 06s | Release date: 2016

Living in harmony requires a change in consciousness. Two modern monks from New Zealand set out on an international journey to film different kinds of people making the choice for a better life through meditation.

Dancers and writers, stressed entrepreneurs, a patient with cancer, children living in shelters and inmates in a maximum security prison; their stories show us that peace is possible for individuals and communities, and suggests that it is possible for all mankind.

Stunning photography combined with the power of people sharing from a place of deep peace provides a palpable and moving experience.

I too enjoyed the documentary but it did in the end feel like a sales pitch, having checked out the website it would seem that the search for world peace starts at £360 for a weekend of learning. Some online talk of the Bright Path being a cult of sorts, others saying they have benefitted immensely, not sure who to believe but ultimately left feeling a little disappointed. Peace and love x

I really enjoyed the film and felt inspired by it but as others have commented I was frustrated in the end - it felt like a sales pitch - this technique works really fast - better than any other meditation technique - you will find immediate peace - so you are hungry for more...then you are told nothing about the technique and so look on the website and it’s presented as some big secret and the only way to ‘find out’ is to go on a weekend and part with £200!
I then did a bit of digging on the internet and it all started to unravel - didn’t feel very spiritual in my opinion. I found a blog from someone who went on one of the weekends and she said the meditation technique was very similar to transcendental meditation but using your own language rather than Sanskrit - And although she appreciated the approach she wasn’t sure at all what the big secret was so outlined the key things she’d learnt on her blog. So I just screen shot her notes and saved myself 200 quid.
I think if anything sounds like a quick fix and a big secret and the best thing ever - it isn’t.
I shan’t let this take away what I got from the film however - which was in no way a big secret but a healthy timely and beneficial reminder that peace is within us - and it doesn’t cost a thing x

Wonderful doc, those inmates meditating and sharing how they felt with meditation in their lives moved me to tears. Thank you for screening meditation content to inspire others to meditate for their own peace and contentment. Love you all at FMTV Love Lauren XXX
