Dharma Film Series presents MANAKAMANA
Saturday, October 1, 7pm ~ What would it be like to see the world as if through a divine, equanimous eye? Manakamana is shot entirely inside a small Nepalese cable car that transports tourists and locals - not all of them human - over sparsely populated Himalayan foothills to an ancient, lofty Hindu temple. We go along for 11 trips, each a single unedited take, observing the unself-conscious passengers continually transform in ways both subtle and striking. Even though little seems to happen - we are certainly not being 'entertained' - each transit is a fresh opportunity to quietly abide, acquiring something of the camera's unblinking tranquility as the magic of the everyday reveals itself. Confined though the film's setting may seem at first, Manakamana's rigor and simplicity convey us directly into the heart of a world whose pace and outlook are vastly different than our own, and open out onto a universe of interdependence. Presented with the Institute For Meditation & Psychotherapy. $10 at the door, with free refreshments and post-film discussion; $35/3 CEUs for mental health professionals

Special Dance Event!
5 RHYTHMS: An Ecstatic Moving Meditation with Margaux Skalecki
Friday, October 7, 7:30-9:30pm ~ The 5 Rhythms offer an invitation to come as you are ~ no dance experience needed, just your curiosity as a first step to awareness through movement. The 5 Rhythms are an ecstatic and meditative practice of vibration and movement. $15 at the door. Please wear comfortable clothes to dance in ~ layers are great for heating up and cooling down ~ wear soft soled shoes, socks or move in bare feet

Release Into RESTORATIVE YOGA* with Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon
Saturday, October 8, 2-4pm ~ Join Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon for an in-depth experience of Restorative Yoga - a therapeutic system that uses the comfortable support of cushions & blankets to nurture the body in various gentle, long held resting postures. Restorative Yoga allows the nervous system to completely quiet and return to a balanced state, quieting the mind. At the same time the body gently stretches and opens, releasing even chronic patterns of tension. And, as attention focuses on each breath, Restorative Yoga also cultivates mindfulness and presence. $35 or class card x 2 + $5 at door; $28 if registered by 10/5 via email with Karen or Keith
