“Mindfulness Goes Mainstream” Doc Available Now from PBS Distribution

PBS Distribution has recently released the documentary series Mindfulness Goes Mainstream (DVD: 3 discs, $24.99). From British Parliament to the Marine Corps to Fortune 100 boardrooms, mindfulness is being practiced—backed by scientific evidence that confirms its benefits and positive impact on health and wellbeing. No longer limited to Eastern philosophers or California hippies, mindfulness is now embraced by millions of people trying to survive in a totally stressed-out world. Narrated by actor Michael Murphy, the film weaves personal stories together with expert opinions and includes interviews with Jon Kabat-Zinn and Dr. Judson Brewer of the UMASS Center for Mindfulness; Dr. Richard Davidson, Center for Healthy Minds; Chade-Meng Tan, former Chief Mindfulness Officer at Google; singer-songwriter Jewel; and ABC News correspondent Dan Harris.
