We are always trying to work out where the music or copywriting / story is heading, and enjoy the journey even if we're wrong. "There is pleasure even in being deceived."

Naked Mind: the film - "A present mind is a happy mind."

From the Himalayas to US Neuroscience labs, two filmmakers explore the effects of meditation and its potential for collective evolution


"Scientific discoveries are proving that meditation can be beneficial to individual and collective happiness, but what does this mean outside an Eastern Buddhist culture? In contemporary American life, the term "mindfulness" has become a buzzword across a huge range of disciplines, from psychology and medicine to education, social action, and prison reform. This film asks: What does mindfulness mean, how does it relate to human happiness, and what does it mean to practice mindfulness in today's society? "

Mindfulness-Meditation is one key to getting a handle on who we are, who we are inside ourselves. Once we start exploring just who we are, many of us are surprised by what we find.

Throughout recorded history people have been using meditation as a tool to dig deep into our consciousness, dig deep into our souls. We wonder just who is this person I call self?

Well now here in the 21st century more and more people are wondering just what are people finding on their journey deep within their minds and they are writing books and making films about what they have found.

Here is a film project that is worthy of your support and I hope you will take a moment to watch and read their message on Kickstarter. The Project and film is called Naked Mind...

I experienced something similar when I visited the monks in Ladakh, India about 10 years ago. Thx for sharing.
