First, apologies if you get more than one copy of this announcement ? you may be in more than one of my groups.
There?s a significant movie you might like to see, that has been produced by a member of the School of Practical Philosophy in New York. It?s called ?The End of Poverty?? and is based in part on the research of the school into economic principles. One of the things the School believes is possible is that by suitable understanding and application of economic knowledge, world hunger could be eradicated.
The movie is showing at the Valley Art Theatre, 509 South Mill Avenue, Tempe; showings: 1:00, 3:30, 6:05 and 8:25. Ends Thursday.
I haven?t yet seen the movie, which won awards at the Cannes Film Festival, and was screened in New York. I was not fortunate enough to be in either location at the time, but we are blessed to have it come to this area. We?re going to see it on Wednesday.
This group will interest thoughtful men and women who want to:
• apply the wisdom of the ages to modern living; • connect with the underlying unity amidst the diversity of life; • experience stillness, peace and joy while participating in the hustle and bustle of daily activities.
The group is not for profit and offers 10-week (on average) classes to both new and continuing students.
Classes provide a forum where like-minded people can communicate and explore philosophical ideas.
These practical classes range from a 10-week introductory course which covers basic principles and techniques, to more advanced courses offering instruction in human development and meditation.
