Dear all,

This spring on April 8, Thinking & Acting e.V.* warmly invites you to a cinema evening.

We would like to watch the film “The connection. Mind your body” together and discuss it afterwards.

The Connection is a documentary about how frontier research is proving that there is a direct connection between your mind and your health. According to the official film’s page there’s a 1 in 2 chance you’ll end up with a chronic illness. It’s likely you know someone, or you are someone who is sick.

The film features scientists, researchers, writers and doctors, as well as remarkable true stories of people adding mind body medicine to their healing toolkit to recover from severe back pain, heart disease, infertility, cancer and multiple sclerosis. The film shows that we can counter the harmful effects of stress with an equally powerful relaxation response triggered through specific techniques such as meditation.

It also shows that emotions can impact the course of an illness for better or for worse and could even be the difference between life and death. The Connection explains the mechanisms behind belief, which scientists now know contributes 30 to 50 percent of the effect of any known biological cure and explores how scientists at the cutting edge are now learning that the mind can even influence the expression of genes and the rate at which we age.
