The film documents the work of Anat Baniel, the founder of Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®, and features interviews with neuroscientists and neuroplasticity experts, including Dr. Michael Merzenich “the father of neuroplasticity,” Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor author of My Stroke of Insight, Dr. Martha Herbert author of The Autism Revolution, and Dr. Rick Hanson of Buddha’s Brain.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A and discussion with a local ABM NeuroMovement Practitioner based in West Seattle, Paige Clark of Bright Mind Movement.
