Mindful : June 2014
Contemplative Doc Zone A roundup of new documentaries of interest to the mindful world Free the Mind A little boy named Will, who has been diagnosed with ADHD, struggles with a fear of elevators. Meanwhile, military veterans, back home after tours of duty in the Middle East, suffer from Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder. Phie Ambo’s Free the Mind drops us into these parallel tales, while Richie Davidson talks brain plasticity and emotional intelligence. When Will learns compassion—for both other kids and himself—it’s wondrous. Playing in selected cities The Mindfulness Movie Architect Paul Harrison was inspired by his own experience with mindful- ness to produce, direct, and star in The Mindfulness Movie. While music and special effects sometimes offset its solid messages, we get a good look at what contemplative neuroscience is reveal- ing about the brain, and where mindful techniques are being used in education, offering teenagers help with emotional disorders. Tim Ryan, Mark Williams, Rick Hanson, Ellen Langer, and Elisha Goldstein all weigh in. Available on DVD from themindfulnessmovie.com Brainwave A 10-episode interview series pairs neu- roscientists and academics with creative people to discuss facets of the human mind. The artists, writers, and performers (including Lewis Black, Amy Tan, and Henry Rollins) tend to lead the discussion with the researchers (such as Emma Sep- pala, Zoran Josipovic, and David Eagle- man). While the discussions are often fascinating, we’ve seen enough Ted Talks to know that stage-bound presentations can have more visual pizzazz. Perhaps a podcast next time? Available on DVD ● OVERHEARD “If mindfulness in some ways connotes being awake, if we’re really talking wholeness and integration, there would have to be some allowance and some lack of beating oneself up around not being mindful. It’s much more exciting to be mindful when I’m not shaming myself or being judged or shamed for not being mindful.” Alanis Morissette (in discussion with Dr. Dan Siegel at Wisdom 2.0, 2014) Check up with someone today you haven’t spoken with in awhile.
