‘Free the Mind’ film

May 17th, 2013
Stanford, CA

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 http://ccare.stanford.edu/event-registration, and watch the movie trailer here.
