About the film:
This powerful documentary presents the latest science in mind and body medicine. After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, journalist and filmmaker Shannon Harvey travelled the world in search of the missing link in healthcare. From interviewing world leading scientists to meeting people with remarkable stories of recovery from severe back pain, heart disease, infertility, cancer and multiple sclerosis, this documentary delves into the link between our mind and body.

It is estimated that one in two people will be diagnosed with a chronic disease in their lifetime and the global cost of healthcare for chronic illness is in the trillions, The Connection is for people who have tried everything. It offers answers and proves that you can change your mind, change your health and change your life.

The evening will also be an opportunity to learn and enquire about current and upcoming Mindfulness workshops offered by Dr. K. Lemay, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, owner, and director of the MapleTree Center DMCC.
