December can be nutty, so let's spend a relaxed evening exploring Buddhism/Buddhist ideas through the world of cinema. Think popcorn, great folks, interesting flick and a casual discussion. Easy, fun and free!
Our group organizers have combed the Eastern-leaning film archives for just the right feature. The winner: The Dhamma Brothers!
This compelling documentary follows a group of prisoners at a maximum-security Alabama penitentiary as they embark on a transformative odyssey by immersing themselves in a grueling, 10-day meditative retreat rooted in Buddhist teachings. During the wrenching course of self-examination and self-discipline, the inmates are forced to confront their crimes, inner demons and dark memories -- which ultimately puts them on a path to deep-seated healing.
We hope you can join us!
