Profound, uplifting... and funny!
23 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

Wasn't sure about this because of low ratings, but since none of the low-raters seemed to have actually seen the film, I decided to take the plunge. And was sure glad I did! Covering a huge amount of territory, from gurus, swamis and The Hugging Saint of Kerala all the way to Harvard Med School researchers, this is an amazing survey of the many many different kinds of meditation/spiritual teaching, their implementation and their benefits. Interviews with people like Bob Thurman (yeah, Uma's dad) are also hysterically funny. Sections demonstrating the efficacy of "mindfulness" with Inner City kids or adult drug addicts are mind-blowing. If you have any interest in meditation instead of medication, don't miss it.
