FMTV - A Mindful Choice

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.

Hi Everyone - When the movie first came out there were a lot of questions. I have been engaged in this practice for a year now and it really has changed my life. I see so much how I don't let my thoughts rule me and how I have a better relationship with my mind. I will be holding a First Sphere Course in South Florida this February which I am very excited about. This is a practice I want to bring to my husband and he sees so much change in me this year he is all in. I had the opportunity to interview one of the Ishaya Teachers who was not in the movie but I cherish dearly Maharati Ishaya and wanted to share with you some pearls of wisdom that we talked about

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 can tell you it's not a cult, I learnt the bright path ascension some years ago. They too have to earn a living! And Iv repeated the weekends learnings many times.... Completely free.

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
