“Mindful Movie Night”
Friday December 13, 2019
A DOUBLE FEATURE
Begins at 7:00 p.m.
One Track Heart: The Story Of Krishna Das (72 mins)
In 1970, suburban teen Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock ‘n’ roll stardom – turning down the lead singer slot in the band that would become Blue Oyster Cult. He sold all his possessions and moved from Long Island, NY to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness and a guru named Neem Karoli Baba, otherwise known as Maharaji. After years of struggling with drug addiction and depression, Kagel is ‘reborn’ as kirtan singer, Krishna Das.
Ram Dass, Going Home (30 mins)
A psychedelic pioneer, author of Be Here Now, beloved spiritual teacher, Ram Dass is now one of the most important cultural figures from the 1960s and 70s. An outspoken advocate for death-and-dying awareness, Ram Dass is now himself approaching the end of life. Since suffering a life-changing stroke in 1997, he has been living at his home on Maui and deepening his spiritual practice – one centered on love and his idea of merging with his surroundings and all living things.
Shona Burke and Christopher Palbicki will be leading a discussion after the films are shown.
