The Event Program
- Movie presentation of Free the Mind
Professor Richard J. Davidson, one of the world’s leading neuroscientists, took the Dalai Lama’s advice to apply the same rigorous methods he used to study depression and anxiety to the study of compassion and kindness. Dr. Davidson, who was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2006, did just that, and the results of his studies at the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds are portrayed in this fascinating new documentary about the science behind meditation. The film poses two questions: What is consciousness and how does it manifest in the brain and body? And is it actually possible to change the brain physically through mental practices alone?
Come support and understand your veterans through this amazing documentary on the effects of a meditation study on those suffering from PTSD. All donations will go to Dryhootch Fox Valley, which is a volunteer-based, non-profit for veterans while they readjust to civilian life.
