"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."
