The Encountering the Sacred in Film group will be meeting on 11 August at around 7pm to watch Bridge to Terabithia (PG). It is a family film, so do consider bringing younger members of the family along.
Jess (the only boy in a family of five children) is an artist and Leslie (an only girl) is a writer and their combined imaginations are brilliant. The film deals with lots of issues - loneliness, money issues, death, how you never really know what’s going on in someone else’s life - but in a way that children can access.
Below are some links - the trailer and info from BBFC and IMDb.
This course follows the pattern of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Programme as introduced by Jon Kabat Zinn and his colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. The course consists of eight weekly sessions of 2 hours duration and one whole silent day of guided and structured mindfulness meditation practice. The first part of the programme puts emphasis on developing the skills of being present with internal experiences such as body sensations, thoughts, emotions and feelings.
