STOP BREATHE LET GO
Filmmaker Tiffany Bellinger explores the teachings of community healers, educators and mindfulness practitioners who provide a more holistic approach to heal from trauma, addiction and the stressors of everyday life.
Do you know what happens when someone experiences a traumatic experience? The typical response is usually some form of talk therapy and one or more prescriptions of medication. Sure, we are all becoming more and more informed that talk therapy and medication alone probably won’t heal you, relieve anxiety or help you recover from addiction. So how does one fill in the gap this typical response leaves us with. Stop Breathe Let Go, explores a variety of holistic practices that attempt to add a more embodied approach to healing and recovery.
Stop Breathe Let Go mixes elements of animation, interviews and live footage to bring the story together. The audience is introduced to a loose animation of a young man, struggling with addiction, who makes the decision to begin his journey towards recovery and healing. One class at a time, he explores Yoga 12 Step Recovery, Pranayama Breathwork, Qigong, and Dancing Mindfulness. In each class, the interviewees reveal how their practice can aid with healing through personal stories and insight from their experience working with others.
Stop Breathe Let Go also explores mindfulness in schools. We learn how a high school counselor and a local nonprofit designed mindfulness programs to help students relieve stress and gain a sense of balance in their life.
