Meditative viewing:

  • “Moving Art” on Neflix – shows a collection of brilliant natural scenes, very colorful and good for the brain.
  • “Rivers and tides” with Andy Goldsworthy – an artist that creates art with nature and shares his philosophy of life. Simply watching the documentary feels very meditative and soothing 
  • “Zenimation” on Disney+ – even if you don’t have children you’ll enjoy this! Instead of “imagination” it’s called “Zennimation” and it’s just fabulous. It combines scenes from all these different Disney movies based on themes, such as water scenes, or weather sounds, or landscapes. It’s very meditative to watch. I love it.
  • “Planet Earth” series with David Attenborough
