The Mindful Revolution (2015)
by Samuel Stefan
It sounds like the perfect antidote to our hectic lives: less stress, better concentration, increased productivity. No wonder mindfulness meditation has become an attractive addition to the boardroom agenda for global giants like Google and SAP. Backed up by science, it seems an increasing amount of organisations are turning to mindfulness to help develop their business model.
In this film, director Samuel Stefan dares to take a look behind the façade of this revolutionary corporate phenomenon to reveal a series of burning ethical issues about the values of our economic system: Is mind- fulness a way for businesses to simply enhance their profit margins and increase productivity? Or does this revolution offer an opportunity to change the way our businesses operate, creating a more equal and fairer society?
From Buddhist monks to entrepreneurs, business managers to inflamed critics; «The Mindful Revolution» offers a critical insight into the growing influence of a modern spiritual phenomenon.
