The movie by Hanna Henigin and Julian Wildgruber tells the story of three executives who are looking for ways out of the »hamster wheel«. Their fears, their patterns of thought and actions inducing stress become visible. And so does their conviction that change has to start with an inner awareness. The movie shows how they free themselves from the grasp of stress through meditation and other approaches, and how they develop an openness toward innovative thinking and acting by an awakening for the now.
The filmmakers examine to what extend the crises of today’s working environment are crisis of consciousness and which ways exist for a change of destructive attitudes. Hanna Henigin and Julian Wildgruber meet managers, bankers, entrepreneurs, quantum physicists, microbiologists, neuroscientists, action researchers, management consultants, coaches and meditation tutors, who break fresh ground with »mindful leadership«, »meditation for managers«, and »caring economics«, and who give new impulses for those in charge of enterprises and for a cultural change in the economic life.
