Zoom: Cinema Divina – On Wondering
With Marilyn Freeman
November 1, 2020
In this distressing time of surging uncertainty, upheaval and life-threatening tribulations, we are called to greater love. But how do we open our hearts in a way that metabolizes what many of us experience as the least welcomed emotions—anger, fear, disgust, hate? Together, in this session we will lean into the holy mystery in contemplative practice with a cinematic meditation on wondering. Marilyn will guide participants through a mindful and sacred screening process of a short film she has made for this session. You will be invited into reverent silences, writing, sharing and spacious listening.
