Meditation is hailed as a sure-fire solution to everything from workplace stress to trauma recovery, a way to cope with mental illness and the key to emotional balance. In the age of the selfie, wellness sells. But what are the facts, and what’s just hype?
Watch a preview of the new documentary My Year of Living Mindfully, and join the film’s director, Shannon Harvey, along with a psychologist and neuroscientist, a mindfulness teacher and a Buddhist monk to discuss the mindfulness movement. Dive into the science and explore how the movement has led to changes in the practice to decide for yourself – is meditation really all it is cracked up to be?
This event is part of Melbourne Knowledge Week, 20–26 May 2019, proudly presented by the City of Melbourne.
