From the creative minds behind "Adaptation," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," and "Being John Malkovich," comes another mind-bending mix of reality and fiction. In the movie, a New York theater director (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman) experiences the slow crumble of his familiar universe as it transforms into the fictitious world he's concocted for a new play. (See trailer and movie info.)SCHEDULE

AMC Empire 25
234 W. 42nd St. (close to 8th Ave.)
We maintain meditative awareness as we watch the film, and have discussion afterward to see what Spirit may have revealed to each of us through the film. The purpose of "Meditation & a Movie" is not to critique films as being "good" or "bad" and the films we see will not necessary have spiritual themes. Metaphysically speaking, life is neither good or bad, and everything in life is spiritual anyway. This event is to help us practice staying awake, witnessing what life presents before us, and learning to articulate and apply whatever wisdom we see in our everyday lives. (Movie starts at 2pm. If you're skipping meditation class, go straight up to the movie.)4:15 - 5:30ish Conversation & a Bite to eat
We'll choose a nearby eatery to share our meditative insights.
