This new documentary by Phie Ambo (Mechanical Love) explores and seeks to quantify the power of meditation for skeptical audiences. Studies by neuroscientist Richard J. Davidson provide the foundation for an investigation into the impact of meditation, yoga and breathing exercises on heightened peacefulness and happiness in veterans, children and a host of others. Initial local screenings will feature Q&A sessions with several medical professionals. The opening night event includes a talkback with Steve and Sandi Amoils, doctors and medical directors at the Alliance Institute for Integrative Medicine. The following evening screening (at 7 p.m.) will spotlight Dr. Richard W. Sears, clinical psychologist at Union Institute & University and the University of Cincinnati Center for Integrative Health and Wellness; and John Orr, founder and executive director of Mindful Youth. Opens Feb. 28 at Mariemont Theatre for one week only. (NR) Not screened in time for review
