Free the Mind
Directed by Phie Ambo
Free the Mind
In 1992 Professor Richard Davidson, one of the world's leading neuroscientists, met the Dalai Lama, who encouraged him to apply the same rigorous methods he used to study depression and anxiety to the study of compassion and kindness, those qualities cultivated by Tibetan meditation practice. The results of Davidson's studies at the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, are portrayed in Free the Mind as they are applied to treating PTSD in returning Iraqi vets and children with ADHD. The film poses two fundamental questions: What really is consciousness, and how does it manifest in the brain and body? And is it possible to physically change the brain solely through mental practices?
"An enlightening documentary about using mindfulness, breathing techniques, and yoga to reprogram the brain and ease the mind."
"Davidson's compilation of seemingly immeasurable data is interesting, as is the doctor himself."
If you focus on its fascinating subject matter and the dramatic revelations presented here with irrefutable impact, "Free the Mind" qualifies as a pioneering inquiry at the outermost boundaries of neuroscience.
"By the end of this documentary, you'll feel like a kid again, filled with wonder and questions about humanity and yourself."
