Join us for Movie Watcher’s Group on Sunday, June 25 at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT. This month’s movie is Little Buddha, starring Keanu Reeves, Bridget Fonda and Chris Isaak. This movie tells the story of Siddharta, later known as the Buddha. It traces his spiritual journey from ignorance to true enlightenment. Interspersed with this story is the story of Lama Norbu who comes to Seattle in search of the reincarnation of his dead teacher, Lama Dorje. His search leads him to young Jesse Conrad, Raju, a waif from Kathmandu, and an upper class Indian girl. Together, they journey to Bhutan where the three children must undergo a test to prove which is the true reincarnation. This movie will also be featured in the Consistent Gentle Healing Group with Rev. Regina Dawn Akers.
The movie is available on Amazon, Itunes and Youtube. Watch the movie with Spirit, then come and share your insights with the group. Guided movie watching allows us to experience our world and practice forgiveness without leaving our living room! It is recommended you join with Spirit in meditation or prayer prior to viewing the movie and then journal after. Watch for common themes, for characters you like or don’t like, for situations that seem to cause discomfort or joy. Contemplate what your reactions to the movie tell you about your beliefs about yourself and the world you live in. Bring what you learn back to the group and learn from others’ movie watching experience as well. Enjoy the movie and don’t forget to watch your mind!
