This is the story of Perpetua, a young Roman woman living in the city of Carthage in North Africa early in the 3rd century A.D. Perpetua came from a noble Roman family, was a wife and mother of a young child and was secretly a Christian at a time when they were being widely persecuted. When the Roman governor ordered the arrest of Christians - mostly lower-caste servants and others - Perpetua publically declared her faith. Despite her nobleman father's pleas to save herself, she insisted on being treated like any other believer. After a long imprisonment and trial, Perpetua died as a martyr in the Roman Colosseum, along with thousands of others. She left behind her husband and small baby, but was later canonized as St. Perpetua for her courage.The film is not only a story of enduring faith, courage and sacrifice, but also a universal tale of love and family.

Ariston was once a Guardian of the Kalliopolis, a perfect city designed according to the instructions of the Philosophers--Philosophers who, in their wisdom, found the human Guardians of Ariston's generation imperfect and replaced them with warrior machines with engines for minds. Phaleas Peneste, a poor farmer's orphan the new Guardians rescued from the devastating winter that killed his family, now serves as a mechanic and servant to them. Unhappy with their positions in the Kalliopolis's new order, each man decides to escape, a coincidence that leads to their first meeting. Afraid to risk his life in the wilderness beyond the Kalliopolis, Phaleas hesitates and is recaptured by the Guardians while Ariston discovers he doesn't have anywhere to run. Back inside, drawn by their shared resistance, the two begin a secret affair. Phaleas hopes that together, they might give each other the strength to escape the Kalliopolis forever... but first he has to convince Ariston to try again.

Mindfulness involves learning to be more aware of life as it unfolds moment by moment, even if these moments bring us difficulty, pain or suffering. This is a challenge we will all face at some time in our lives, and which health professionals face every day in their work. The Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living programme presents a new way of learning how to face the pressures of modern living by providing an antidote which teaches us how to cultivate kindness and compassion - starting with being kind to ourselves.
Compassion involves both sensitivity to our own and others' suffering and the courage to deal with it. Integrating the work of experts in the field such as Paul Gilbert, Kristin Neff, Christopher Germer and Tara Brach,Erik van den Brink and Frits Koster have established an eight stage step-by-step compassion training programme, supported by practical exercises andfree audio downloads, which builds on basic mindfulness skills. Grounded in ancient wisdom and modern science, they demonstrate how being compassionate shapes our minds and brains, and benefits our health and relationships. The programme will be helpful to many, including people with various types of chronic or recurring mental health problems, and can be an effective means of coping better with low self-esteem, self-reproach or shame, enabling participants to experience more warmth, safeness, acceptance and connection with themselves and others.
Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living will be an invaluable manual for mindfulness teachers, therapists and counsellors wishing to bring the 'care' back into healthcare, both for their clients and themselves. It can also be used as a self-help guide for personal practice.
