A free movie screening and Q&A session with researcher and CCARE Associate Director Emma Seppala

Check out the Greater Good Events Calendar.

Note: The Greater Good Science Center is a co-sponsor of this event.

CCARE presents the official West Coast premiere of “Free Your Mind”, a documentary detailing research on breathing practices, yoga and meditation for OIF/OEF veterans with combat trauma, and on mindfulness practices for children. The documentary raises the questions:

  • What is a thought?
  • How does it create a manifestation in the body?
  • Can we make a physical change of the brain only by the power of thought?

Join us in finding answers to these questions at this FREE event. For more information, visit, and watch the movie trailer here.
