Free the Mind: A New Documentary on Mindfulness

Free the mind banner

I had the great pleasure of reviewing the new film by Danish filmmaker, Phie Ambo: Free the Mind. It’s a beautiful and compelling film about how mindfulness can help us to overcome fear and heal from trauma. It features of the work of pioneering neuroscientist, Richard Davidson at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

I interviewed Dr. Davidson an Phie Ambo for the piece I wrote for the Buddhism section of Beliefnet. YOU CAN READ MY COMPLETE REVIEW HERE.
