Free the mind
It is thought that our personalities are mainly determined by our genes together with our upbringing. But Davidson’s research shows something different – that the brain is actually plastic and shapes personalities throughout life. And there are effective ways of taking control.
In order to create a more harmonious society, one must begin with those who disturb. Can you, by teaching American war veterans Mindfulness meditation, change the distraught and destructive brains of soldiers, thereby giving them a better chance of survival in civil society?
Professor Davidson has instigated a test with a group of veterans who must meditate for eight weeks. The camera will follow the experiment closely both during and after the experiment, posing the ultimate question: is it possible, through meditation, to free the struggling minds of war veterans and finally give them some peace of mind?
