In 1992 Professor Richard J. Davidson (one of the world's leading neuroscientists) met the Dalai Lama, who encouraged him to apply the same rigorous methods he used to study depression and anxiety to the study of compassion and kindness.  Dr. Davidson, who was named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in 2006, did just that: the results of his studies at the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds are portrayed in this fascinating new documentary about the science behind meditation.  The film poses two questions: What is consciousness, and how does it manifest in the brain and body?  Is it actually possible to change the brain physically through mental practices alone?
