THE MIND profiles the pioneering work of renowned psychologist Richard
Davidson, who, by studying the practices of Tibetan monks and others,
found that it is possible to rewire the brain through meditation and
mental training exercises.
Named one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2006, Dr.
Davidson has dedicated himself to applying this hopeful discovery to
improve the lives of people throughout the world. He founded the Center
for Investigating Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin to study
whether and how contemplative traditions change our brains and can help
people overcome mental trauma and live happier lives.
“Hopeful and inspiring…There’s something healing about simply
watching Free the Mind, Danish filmmaker Phie Ambo’s gentle,
compassionate documentary…” – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
