Overlooked & Underrated Docs & Features (click on broll or dschwartz for all his posts)
Introduction: A friend pontificated the obvious: Fully taking care of yourself is a full-time job.
Securing healthy, clean food and water and avoiding unhealthy foods. / Aerobic exercise as well as moving against resistance. / Yoga (or stretching, if you like). / Receiving nurturance and healing through human touch. / Educating oneself—the spiritual, psychological, and practical. Maintaining a clean, healthy personal environment / and, of course, meditation.
How much time and energy are available to give to others, and to secure an income to support these self-care activities? It’s a quandary, of course, and we are challenged to resolve it. (Although giving to others can be also be part of one’s self-care. Whether or not it is depends on the measure.)
Very few humans fully incorporate the above into their lifestyles. The barriers are three—time, money, and carelessness. Many though, attempt to maximize their self-care.
” is the first in a series of documentary films about meditation. This first film features beautiful images and music in the background, and 11 humans in the foreground speaking about meditation, how it helps them, what they think about it. Here are their names:
Arlene Shechet, Mark Epstein, Russell Simmons, Sharon Salzberg, Gabrielle Bernstein, David Lynch, Tim Ryan, Giancarlo Esposito, Peter Matthiessen, Elena Brower, The Venerable Metteyya
The series is being produced by Rebecca Dreyfus and Susannah Ludwig.
Warning: If you don’t meditate, or if you do so sporadically, you may find yourself meditating on a regular basis after seeing this film, and, especially, listening to the people in this film. Meditation is free, and takes little time.
