Product Description: 

A Small Good Thing is a feature documentary that tells the stories of people moving away from a philosophy of "more is better" toward a more holistic conception of well-being - one based on a close connection to themselves, the natural world, and to the greater good. The film follows farmers, social work students, yoga teachers and others who share a deep desire to have more meaning in their lives, a closer bond with their families and communities, and a connection to themselves, and the natural world. These stories are deepened by some of our most visionary thinkers, including: Bill McKibben, author on climate change; Jeremy Rifkin on the future of energy; Stephen Cope, director of the Institute for Extraordinary Living at Kripalu; Dacher Keltner, positive psychology researcher; and Kristin Neff, a leading expert on self-compassion.
