Dharma Film Series presents KUMARE
Saturday, May 3, 7pm ~ Hoping to document the blind faith he found among spiritual disciples in India, filmmaker Vikram Gandhi devises an outrageous experiment: he’ll transform himself into ‘Kumaré’an Indian holy man espousing bogus philosophy and practicesand settle in the American southwest to develop a following. To Gandhi’s surprise and growing embarrassment, he finds himself ensnared in the actual role of ‘Kumaré’ and yet somehow liberated by it. Hilarious, thrilling, provocative, and deeply moving, this prize-winning film asks some of the most difficult questions that face the spiritual seeker: how much do we really need others to guide us toward our own truth? And, do the ends justify the means? Presented with the Institute For Meditation & Psychotherapy. $10 at the door, with free refreshments, post-film discussion; $35/3 CEUs, mental health professionals
