We have had slow reading clubs, today we explore the ‘Slow TV movement’. From the introduction: “You’ve heard about slow food. Now here’s slow … TV? In this very funny talk, Norwegian television producer Thomas Hellum shares how he and his team began to broadcast long, boring events, often live — and found a rapt audience. Shows include a 7-hour train journey, an 18-hour fishing expedition and a 5.5-day ferry voyage along the coast of Norway. The results are both beautiful and fascinating. Really.” (video is 18 minutes long or you can read the transcript with a quiet cup of tea).
You can also view the mere 2 our long slow television from the UK and watch your mental habits go wild, this would be a great a way to learn how the monkey mind gets going. You have to commit to sit through the whole thing, no matter what. No excuses! A longer practice perhaps. We could not resist finding the 7 hour long train journey documentary for you, who might brave this advanced stillness practice?
