My friend, Siobhan, forwarded this movie to me about the brain's plasticity, or ability to change and grow. This documentary is about the scientific research being done on the benefits of Buddhist meditation. Fascinating! Dan Rather hosts. My mom and I are planning on attending a retreat with one of the monks featured in this video, Mingyur Rinpoche, in 2009.
