Join us for Movie Watcher’s Group on Sunday, May 28 at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT. This month’s movie is “Peaceful Warrior.” Dan Millman (Scott Mechlowicz) is a driven gymnast who dreams of winning gold in the Olympics in this transformational spiritual drama based on Dan Millman’s autobiographical novel The Way of the Peaceful Warrior. This movie highlights the relationship between a student and a wise teacher. Dan’s mind is filled with a constant barrage of thoughts and emotions that keep him in a state of agitation. His teacher, Socrates (Nick Nolte) sees that this college student has kept his body in fine shape but has not done much inner work. He wants Dan “to take out the trash,” all the stuff that passes through his head that he doesn’t need.
The movie is available on Amazon, Itunes, Vudu and Youtube Red. 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!
