Part of the "Alternative Therapies" series. What takes place in the brain and body during meditation? Can science shed any light on what is essentially considered a "spiritual" practice? Pursues scientific possibilities by examining the effects of meditation on the human mind, nervous system, and anatomy. Accompanied by physicist and science education expert Dr. Kathy Sykes, viewers meet practitioners and medical researchers who have developed theories and insights into meditation-related phenomena. Cardiologists and palliative caregivers who use meditation to treat angina, multiple sclerosis, and insomnia explain their findings. Renowned psychologist Paul Ekman provides commentary, while patients who use meditation to relieve clinical conditions recount their experiences. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
