This morning Ali & I joined an online discussion of the film ‘My Year of Living Mindfully’ by Shannon Harvey at The Compassion Revolution conference in Australia. It was a wonderful chat of an incredibly interesting film about the science of mindfulness and the impact it can have on lives.
We would highly recommend giving the film a watch – whether you’re new to mindfulness or not. here’s the trailer to give you a taste:
You can rent or purchase the film from the filmmaker’s website: https://www.shannonharvey.com/pages/my-year-of-living-mindfully-documentary
Ali & I have both been practicing mindfulness and meditation for years, but 2020 seems to have knocked us off course. Watching the film was a good reminder of how important mindfulness is in our lives and have set intentions to start up a simple daily practice again.
Practicing mindfulness can help increase compassion and kindness in our lives, especially to ourselves.
