Thoughtware.tv - Mystical Brain


This is a cool documentary about research efforts (U of Montreal) to understand what happens in the brain when subjects experience "mystical" states.

Mystical brain

This short documentary reveals the exploratory work of a team from the University of Montreal who seek to understand the states of grace experienced by mystics and those who meditate. Filmmaker Isabelle Raynauld offers up scientific research that suggests that mystical ecstasy is a transformative experience and could contribute to people's psychic and physical health, treat depression and speed up the healing process when combined with conventional medicine. In French with English subtitles.
