Virtual screening My Year of Living Mindfully

Would you like to be a little more mindful? We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a virtual screening of the fabulous film "My Year of Living Mindfully" on Thursday 19th November at 7.30pm. Free for up to 100 members.

Overwhelmed with insomnia and an incurable autoimmune disease, Shannon

Harvey needed to make a change. But while the award-winning health journalist

found plenty of recommendations on diet, sleep and exercise, when she looked for

the equivalent of a 30-minute workout for her mental wellbeing, there was nothing.

Worried for the future mental health of her kids who were growing up amidst

epidemics of stress, anxiety, depression and addiction, Shannon enlisted a team of

scientists to put meditation to the test. Could learning to quiet our busy minds be the

simple solution the world so desperately needs?

Throughout her year of living mindfully Shannon is poked, prodded, scanned and

screened as she travels the world to interview 18 of the world’s leading mindfulness

scientists and pioneers. But after a 30,000 kilometre journey from the bright lights of

Manhattan to the dusty refugee camps of the Middle East, what begins as a selfexperiment, transforms into a life-changing experience.

My Year of Living Mindfully is filled with compelling stories, groundbreaking science,

and unexpected insights that go to the heart of what it means to be human in the

twenty-first century.
