CONTEMPORARY CINEMA & SPIRITUALITY: Summer Session
Friday, July 26 - Sunday, July 28, 2019
The greatest human and spiritual truths are often embodied in stories and narratives. Today much of the burden of story-telling is carried by movies. We will view four mainstream films and have intensive discussions on how spiritual realities are shown through their plots, symbols, acting, and so forth. These films will be chosen around a theme and are traditionally kept a mystery. This workshop seeks to raise and focus consciousness of the medium and offer ways to use it in the ongoing project of spiritual growth. (The winter session is offered January 11-13, 2019)
