Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things asks the question; How might your life be better with less? It examines the many flavors of minimalism by taking the audience inside the lives of minimalists from all walks of life -- families, entrepreneurs, architects, artists, journalists, scientists, and even a former Wall Street broker -- all of whom are striving to live a meaningful life with less.
The Minimalists, Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Fields Millburn lead you on an adventure to live deliberately with less and be present with the people around you.
78 Minutes. Discussion Facilitator: Nikki Clifton

-Viewpoint Diversity, Objective Reasoning
-Triggering, Defenses, and "Being Right"
-How our Minds Play Tricks on Us
-Emotional Vs. Critical Reasoning
-Why Everyone Else is a Hypocrite
