Thank you for signing up!
My yoga practice is a life practice. Yoga, to me, is both a practice and the culmination of a practice. It’s the daily practice of showing up fully and then getting out of my own way, but it’s also the serendipitous connection to myself that arises as a result of my practice. I live yoga in my kitchen, my relationships, and my everyday life. The medium may change, but the process remains constant.
This month’s Spiritual Cinema Circle film collection is all about overcoming the odds.
It Ain’t Over is a story of hope from a man with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) who has been defying medical odds for over a decade. Granny’s Got Game follows a group of women in their seventies who have been playing basketball together for nearly 20 years. The Birdman celebrates a shopkeeper in New York City who has maintained a sanctuary for music lovers in the midst of the digital age.
This month’s film program is all about love and inspiration.
In Jillian’s Vantage, a couple on a blind date learn to see from one another’s perspective.
In The Most Beautiful Thing, two teenagers getting ready for the school dance teach each other about communication and compassion.
In Revelations, a man’s life is judged in an unexpected way.
Our films for this month focus on communication and imagination. In the high-concept short Baggage, a young man reclaims some emotional baggage he thought he had left behind for good. In The Gambling Man, we visit the inspiring real-life story of Alby Hurwit, a retired doctor who pursues his life-long dream to compose a symphony. And in What is That?, a father and son learn to reconnect.
Spiritual Cinema Circle’s September films focus on the journeys we take to find love.
The Last New Yorker, starring veteran actor Dominic Chianese (Uncle Junior in The Sopranos), asks the question: “Is it ever too late to find happiness?” This feature is a great exploration of a man looking at his life all over again.
Have you ever found an unexpected connection? Spiritual Cinema Circle’s selections for August follow connections between friends, family and strangers.
In our feature film, Take Me Home, a woman looking for purpose in her life finds herself on a cross-country drive from New York City to California with a charming rogue taxi driver. Starring, written and directed by Sam Jaeger, known for his role in the TV series Parenthood.
