Zoom: Cinema Divina – On Beholding
With Marilyn Freeman
February 7, 2021
We are called to greater love and ever-increasing consciousness as we move into a new season of promise. This session, On Beholding, invites you into stillness with others to apprehend the everyday bare natural world in a cinematic contemplative practice on our humanity, our mortality and our sacred imaginations. Marilyn will guide participants through a mindful screening process of a short film they’ve made for this session. You will be invited into reverent silences, writing, sharing and spacious listening.
