    Last night I saw this documentary on Dutch television.

    http://danishdocumentary.com/site/freethemind/

    It is a beautiful documentary about the work of psychologist Richard Davidson, who in this film does research on the employment of mindfulness and breathing techniques on a group of young children with ADHD and a group of Iraq-veterans suffering with PTSD, to see if it helps them to get more grip on their emotions.

    Personally I loved the doc, I even shed a tear. Not that is filmed with that purpose, thanks to the scientific approach it has become a pretty down-to-earth film, but to see the 5-year old Will finally ride an elevator that normally gave him anxiety attacks was wonderful.

    I can't find any link to the video other than this one, sorry for the Dutch subtitles. Enjoy...

    Hi Gigalos,

    I was unable to watch the video, it returned a message in Dutch. Is anyone else able to view the video?

    Ahh, perhaps it's not available to view outside of the Netherlands.

    Hmmm... I think mike is right. It is a service that gives you the opportunity to watch tv-programs broadcast on Dutch national television and that you may have missed. I'll see if I can find another link, because I think it is worth viewing.
