Movie Night: “Peaceful Warrior”

June 29, 2019 @ 5:15 pm - 8:30 pm CDT

We will do a short sitting tonight, and then watch the movie: “Peaceful Warrior” followed by a short Dharma discussion as related to the movie.

Movie synopsis: A 2006 inspirational movie based on a true story. Dan Millman is a gifted young athlete bound for Olympic gold who will do anything to be the best. Driven by success, Dan has got it all: trophies, fast motorcycles, fast girls, and wild parties. But Dan’s world is turned upside down when he meets a mysterious stranger in a gas station who holds the power to tap into new worlds of strength and understanding. The young man discovers that he has much to learn and even more to leave behind in order to master this new vision of greatness in this moving tale about the power of human will.

We will order food from Opart Thai next door to eat while watching the movie – please bring cash if you wish to order take-out, or feel free to bring your own food / snacks.

6:15 PM: Door Opens – meditation instructions provided if needed
6:30 PM: Short sitting meditation
~6:50 PM: Order food and start movie, followed by short discussion

Beginners welcome. No cost to attend. Donations (optional) at-the-door appreciated, to help support the continual operations and growth of this group.

Wear loose comfortable clothing, and please note that shoes are not allowed on the meditation mat.
