Phoenix Exclusive!! Free the Mind Movie Premiere

A hugely important film documenting the scientific benefits of meditation... Watch the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBF89r_VW6w

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?

Short Q and A session following the movie. Bring your friends and loved ones. We need 75 people to purchase advanced tickets in order for the film to be shown! Purchase tickets: http://www.tugg.com/events/5144

    I wish I could go, but I'm going to a spiritual discussion group tonight. Do you know if this will show in theaters later on?
