  3. Tibetan Buddhist meditation master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, developmental psychologist Dr. Robert W. Roeser from Portland State University, and cognitive neuroscientist Dr. David R. Vago from Harvard Medical School participate in an evening dialogue that explores the concept of sustainable happiness from modern scientific, contemplative and practical perspectives.

    What is sustainable happiness? Is sustainable happiness possible in this life? How might it be cultivated through contemplative practices like meditation? What does scientific research tell us about how meditation affects health and happiness? How might sustainable happiness be linked to the broader concept of ecological sustainability?

    Mingyur Rinpoche provides an introduction to the practice and science of meditation as a key means of realizing sustainable happiness and guides the audience in a short experience of meditation. Drs. Roeser and Vago, based on their work in educational and medical settings, and with the Mind and Life Institute, discuss new psychological and neuroscientific research findings about how meditation seems to affect health and happiness. Audience members ask Rinpoche and other dialogue members questions at the end of the program.

    Outtake

    From Neurons to Nirvana: The Great Medicines is an in-depth analysis
    of psychedelic drugs in light of current scientific, medical, and cultural
    knowledge, and on the validity of psychedelics as adjuncts to therapy; as
    crucial but neglected ‘taboo’ medicines; and as technologies of consciousness.

    In the last few years psychedelics have been given a new respectability in
    science and in therapy. Universities in Zurich, at Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and
    at the University of California, are conducting human trials with psychedelics
    to treat a number of afflictions from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to
    cluster headaches, addictions, and end-of-life anxiety.

    But the story is much bigger: outside of research centers, a growing
    population has embarked upon psychic adventures using all manner of exotic
    substances, natural and synthetic, illegal and not-yet-illegal.

    This richly illustrated documentary is poised to tap into a phenomenon which has only recently and superficially touched the mainstream media. November 2008, CNNʼs Dr. Sanjay Gupta presented a segment on Iraq War PTSD veterans who testified to the efficacy of therapy enhanced by MDMA. A December 18, 2008 headline on a double-page spread inThe Economist stated, "Ecstasy may be good for those who can't get over something truly horrible." Even Fox Network ran a (misleading) headline stating that LSD might 'extend the life of terminal ill patients'. What's new is that for the first time in nearly two generations the use of these drugs is not being presented as harmful or as self-indulgent, but as a rational and valuable addition to therapeutic practice.

    Banned worldwide from research labs for nearly 35 years, mind-altering drugs from Ecstasy to LSD are again becoming the focus of serious scientific study. Researchers in several centers, including John Hopkins and the University of California, are conducting clinical trial to treat a range of afflictions: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), addictions, and the psychological stresses suffered by late-stage terminal cancer patients. The initial results of all these studies is remarkable.

    But the story is much bigger than these trials. Outside the research centers, a growing population is embarking on psychic adventures using all manner of exotic substances natural and synthetic, illegal and not-yet-illegal. Experimenters and clients of licensed therapists use these underground drugs not as escape routes, nor as addictive crutches, but in a quest for transformation, mental health, creativity, intellectual and spiritual enhancement and insight.

    From Neurons to Nirvana introduces a vibrant spectrum of characters that champion psychoactive drugs as medicines and as enhancers. Noted contributors include Amanda Feilding, Countess of Wemyss, director of the Beckley Foundation to Further Consciousness; Dr. Michael Mithoefer who conducted groundbreaking, successful posttraumatic stress disorder trials with MDMA; Dr. Dennis McKenna, author, ethnopharmacologist, expert on DMT and Ayahuasca, and Dr. Gábor Máté, the award winning Vancouver author and expert on addictions.

    Using state of the art HD image processing, filmmaker Oliver Hockenhull intellectually engages his viewers with riveting subject matter, and uses a visually stunning approach to give the audience tantalizing glimpses into the exquisitely beautiful world of the psychedelic experience.

    From Neurons To Nirvana explores the promise of brave new advances in psychopharmacology and neuroscience, guiding the viewer in a thought-provoking journey, led by those determined to hold open the doors of perception.
