What: Enlighten Up!

Enlighten Up!, a film about the experience of yoga as intriguing, challenging, funny and, in the end, deeply meaningful. Kate Churchhill, the film’s director, says of the practice, “Most Americans experience yoga at a local studio for a 90-minute class in any number of styles. For some people it is a workout, for others it is a spiritual path and for others it is a great business.”
Synopsis: Filmmaker Kate Churchill is determined to prove that yoga can transform anyone. Nick Rosen is skeptical but agrees to be her guinea pig. Kate immerses Nick in yoga, and follows him around the world as he examines the good, the bad and the ugly of yoga. The two encounter celebrity yogis, true believers, kooks and world-renowned gurus.
After the film, REAL ART WAYS presents, What is Enlightenment? A lighthearted talk with Master Hyunmoon Kim, a yoga & meditation teacher in the Taoist tradition. All anti-intellectuals welcome! ; )
