ONLINE SCREENING OF "MY YEAR OF LIVING MINDFULLY"

FREE

"In the midst of a growing mental illness epidemic, award-winning health journalist Shannon Harvey enlists a team of scientists to put meditation to the test. As she travels 30,000 kilometres around the world, from the bright lights of Manhattan to the dusty refugee camps of the Middle East, she has one simple question in mind: Could learning to quiet our busy minds be the solution the world so desperately needs?

In her search for the mental equivalent of a 30 minute daily work-out, the best of investigative science journalism meets the most personal of storytelling as Shannon interweaves her journalistic diary with the intimate stories of the people she meets along the way.

What begins as a year-long self-experiment transforms into a life-changing experience."

About MBSR

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is one of the most researched curriculums for learning about the efficacy of mindfulness training to alleviate stress concurrent with medical conditions.

Due to my training with University of Massachusetts’ Center for Mindfulness, and my dedication to experiential learning, all of our classes are MBSR inspired. Whether you choose an introductory class or the full 8 week course, you will encounter themes, practices, and inquiry-based dialogue that embody the MBSR spirit.

The formal mindfulness practices taught and practiced in our classes build a foundation for the weaving moment to moment awareness and creative responding into everyday living. This is when the rubber hits the road and your presence of mind, body, and heart matter most! By exercising the “awareness muscle” during moments of relative calm and during times of stress, you are bolstering attentional capacity, supporting emotional regulation, cultivating compassion for self and others, and opening a door to valuable self-knowledge, a powerful tool in and of itself for acceptance, growth, and change.

Benefits

Research has supported a variety of potential benefits from practicing mindfulness. With a daily 30 min practice, some studies found changes in the brain in as little as two weeks  (Davidson, et la).

Improved immune function.
Positive impact on factors linked with heart disease (stress, blood pressure, heart rate variability).

Sense of physical and emotional well-being.
