White scarves sold  will provide funding to support scholarships for higher education of young school-leavers in these countries, in association with The NAG School and www.sevenwomen.org, Kathmandu and www.baliwise.org. 


The Connection is a film about how frontier research is proving that there is a direct connection between your mind and your health.

change your mind, change your health and change your life

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. While the science is complex, the solutions for people suffering with illness are astonishingly simple. 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 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 film 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.

Previous screenings have raised over $9500 in funds donated to Seven Women Nepal organisation that supports training and education of marginalised and disabled Nepalese Women (Wangaratta, Victoria in  September 2017 & July 2018, & Melbourne, Victoria in November 2017). 

The last screening was at The Yoga Barn, Ubud, Bali to celebrate International Women's Day from a global perspective on March 12th, 2018. $3000 was raised with combined International Women's day March film and lunch events to support vocational training of young Indonesian women to gain sustainable employment.
