Doc:The Connection Connection is a documentary that dives into the mind, body, medicine connection. It explores the health benefits that meditation has been documented to have over chronic illness.

The film includes an internationally recognized lineup of scientists, including Dr. Herbert Benson; researchers, including Dr. Dean Ornish; writers, including Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn; and renowned medical doctors, including Dr. Andrew Weil.

The film also features compelling true stories of recovery such as Professor George Jelinek, a Professor of Emergency Medicine who has recovered from multiple sclerosis, and Dr. Ian Gawler who recovered from an aggressive bone cancer.

The Connection is a film that proves we have more influence on our health outcomes than we ever thought possible.
