Description: http://www.davidlynchfoundation.org/ In this clip from the launch of Operation Warrior Wellness NYC at the Urban Zen Center, neuroscientist Dr. Fred Travis provides an insight into how Transcendental Meditation can help restructure the parts of the brain that have been damaged by severe trauma. He explains how the brain functions and how every experience we have changes the brain: Traumatic experiences physically change the brain structure, effecting memory, fight or flight response, and causing fragmentation in the brain. He goes on to explain how Transcendental Meditation actually gives the brain a uniquely healing experience that restores integrated functioning to the brain—and holistic thinking to the mind.
