* FRI MAR 20 2015 7:15pm – Monthly Movie Night *THE POWER OF THE PLACEBO” (free/love-offering)

After a 3-month hiatus for Dr. E’s maternity leave – our favorite DTW tradition of Movie Night returns!

tedkaptchukplaceboThis month we are watching the new BBC documentary *THE POWER OF THE PLACEBO*, showcasing the fascinating new research on the Placebo Effect, fresh new perspectives on what it means about the power of our human mind to affect our physiology in the most miraculous ways! This short & fun 58min documentary will open our minds & hearts – inspiring us to take a deeper look at the tremendous healing power we all have within ourselves. The placebo topic also aligns beautifully with our name “Dan Tian” – which translates to “field of medicine”. Dan Tian is the chinese Qigong / Tai Chi term for the energy centers or Chakras within our body. But as many of you know, the name specifically refers to the pharmacy of (free) medicine we can all activate from within. See Trailer. Join us!
