As we reopen our lives in the midst of uncertainty, injustice, loss, and longing, you are invited to open your heart through Cinema Divina - a contemplative, creative, communal practice. In this live virtual event, Cinema Divina creator Marilyn Freeman will guide participants through a meditative screening ritual with a film Marilyn created through and for contemplative practice.

Marilyn re-imagines the ancient Judeo-Christian ritual of sacred reading, or lectio divina, in todays audiovisual vernacular as Cinema Divina - a contemplative screening ritual to deepen your inner knowing, and to increase your capacity for healing yourself and our world. In this event, as Marilyn guides you through a ritual of four increasingly revealing viewings, you will be invited into reverent silences, reflective writing, sharing and spacious listening.

Marilyn's short poetic film, How Long Will You Sleep - about consciousness, love and the air of eternity - will serve as a vector for mindful attention, transporting participants into deeper awareness of and curiosity about your own thoughts, emotions, intuition, and insights. The film at the center of the practice is continually re-finished by each person who watches and engages with it contemplatively. Participants - individually and collectively - co-create the meaning of the piece with their own awareness, imaginations, and associations. Those who engage in this practice nurture their own source for insight into vulnerability, resiliency, gratitude, stillness, love, wonder, courage

Through this contemplative creative work, Marilyn offers the everyday and the ordinary as realms of profound possibility and essential wisdom. Wherever you are in this time of uncertainty, bring your hearts desire and know you will find yourself among kindred spirits. As a practice, Cinema Divina is a way of cultivating the conditions to be wholly awake and connected if only for a fleeting, wondrous moment.
