Movie Night: “The Oxford Murders” (w/ Dharma discussion)

March 30, 2019 @ 6:15 pm - 9:30 pm UTC+0

We will do a very short sitting tonight, and then order food and watch the movie: “The Oxford Murders” followed by a brief Dharma discussion as related to the movie.

About the movie: A 2008 movie starring Elijah Wood and John Hurt. Synopsis: At Oxford University, a prestigious professor of logic and a young graduate student work together to try to stop a potential series of murders seemingly linked by mathematical symbols. As they try to crack the code, an elaborate puzzle begins, in which nothing is as it seems and the truth is elusive. At heart is the question: “can we really know the truth?”

For those wishing to order take-out from next door’s Opart Thai, please bring cash; 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 a short discussion

Beginners welcome. No cost to attend, but donations much appreciated, to help support the continual operations and growth of this group, such as paying our monthly rent, Meetup subscription fees, and more.

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