Contains dangerous, misleading, anti-rationality agenda that claims to be backed by "science"
10 March 2017 | by hauskkiaSee all my reviews

I regularly practice mindfulness meditation and completely see the benefits of being aware of your body, mind, and separating your thoughts from your self in the present moment. I really wanted to like this movie, and tried so hard to keep watching but got so angry halfway through that I just couldn't handle it anymore. This movie uses cheap, "scientific" visuals, and claims to be backed by "credible scientific evidence," when the psychological ideas behind it are decades old and complete bulls**t (i.e. Left brain, right brain). The idea that thinking rationally is somehow "bad for your whole being" is a dangerous idea to be promoting to people looking for self-help, and influences them to not think about their actions, and to believe whatever their mind comes up with on its own. Your mind comes up with random, completely irrelevant information on its own, much of which is very beneficial and healthy to ignore. Also, what is intuition? The movie never once directly told me what it was spending hours referring to... please please keep thinking rationally and logically, do not stop being critical of any information given to you, or that you give yourself. Awful movie.
