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.

Here is the tour schedule. Check it out if it comes to a theater near you.

Good things come in small packages especially when it is The Poetry of Impermanence, Mindfulness, and Joy edited by the poet John Brehm and published by Wisdom.
