With Marilyn Freeman
October 4, 2020 - May 2, 2021
The long-term program, Cinema Divina, began a second season on October 4, 2020. Cinema Divina is the meditative film work and shared contemplative viewing practice of media artist, writer and St. Placid Oblate, Marilyn Freeman. Focusing on topics from everyday life, this program includes a series of sessions adapting lectio divina into a sacred film screening process with facilitated silence, reflections, writing and sharing.
“These films have been transformative for me in the deep spiritual way that I have encountered other artists like Annie Dillard, Mary Oliver and bell hooks.” Gabriel Molinaro, Pastor, Sanctuary Church Seattle.
Marilyn Freeman is a media artist, writer and spiritual director.
