Buddhist-themed Movie Night

  • Dec 10, 2011 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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!

    This is a great idea and should make for a great gathering. I thought about something like this awhile back and I'm so happy to know someone will actually make this happen. Awesome!!!
    Keep up the good work, folks.
