Why study Dharma in Film?
Whether a comedy, drama or thriller, the medium of film brings us great joy. Astrologically speaking, film is ruled by the same planet as meditation and the transcendental unitive experience: Neptune (which also rules things like delusion, fantasy and substance abuse).
How can we use our pleasure from film to explore the experience of spiritual awakening? Join us in these webinars to learn how. We’ll examine these films together from a dharma perspective.
