Zoom: Cinema Divina – On Opening
With Marilyn Freeman
December 6, 2020
As the miseries of our moment intensify by the day, our longing for the divine light of love is intensifying too. This session, On Opening, invites you to presence your mystical heart in communion with others in a cinematic contemplative practice on the centuries-old season of advent—a time of hope, love, joy and peace. 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.
