ON MEDITATION is an evolving series of portrait films that explore the deeply personal practice of meditation.

Practiced for thousands of years, meditation is at once profound and simple:  the focused attempt to move beyond conditioned “thinking” into a deeper state of awareness. 
Yet, what does that path – the path of the inner journey, which is above all a private, interior one – really look like?
ON MEDITATION conveys first-hand experiences of those who have developed meaningful practices and are willing to share their experiences. From teachers to everyday people to celebrities, the subjects of ON MEDITATION offer a rare glimpse into the private insights and rituals of its subjects.

Each film, or portrait, focuses on a single individual – and explores how meditation works for them, how it has changed or continues to change them in the deepest or subtlest ways, and what it looks like on the most basic physical level.

ON MEDITATION is a production of Snapdragon Films. Helming the series is the award winning director/executive producer team of Rebecca Dreyfus and Susannah Ludwig, joined by renowned yoga teacher and author Elena Brower, who is for the first time lending her talents as an executive producer.
