Victoria Film Debut with Filmmakers: Conscious:Fulfilling our Higher Evolutionary Potential

Is crisis pushing us toward a leap in consciousness?

The new 1 hour documentary film Conscious asks about our potential to achieve a transformation in consciousness, which might be both inevitable and essential at this juncture in our development if we are going to continue the human journey.

A film inspired by the work of Sri Aurobindo featuring interviews with Brian Thomas Swimme, Stanislav Grof, Michael Murphy, and many more. Our esteemed visionaries delve into science, the arts, love, and divinity to unveil our most profound human potential.

With beautiful imagery, inspiring music, and the wisdom of respected scholars, the documentary film Conscious unveils a deeper spiritual meaning in our radically changing world.

Link to watch trailer: www.integralinspirations.com/film

Suggested Donation: $5.00 – $10.00

The filmmakers will be available for Q&A after the film.

Wednesdays, 7:00 – 8:30 pm  
Oneness Wednesdays – details here

 

Friday, November 3, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm 
Free DVD showings, silent sitting and dialogue.
Facilitator:  David Bruneau

These meetings, now on the first Friday of the month from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, are sponsored by the Krishnamurti Educational Centre of Canada.  J. Krishnamurti, the world-renowned 20th century philosopher and educator, has written and lectured extensively on relevant subjects such as freedom, love, truth, and meditation.  His ability to tackle these themes with great honesty and insight has helped many to see themselves and the world around them in a new way. The focus is on self understanding through self inquiry and includes contemporary teachers other than Krishnamurti.  The gatherings will include a short video clip of “K” speaking on a chosen topic, a printed handout from his book “Freedom From the Known”, which will be read at the meeting, and a group discussion. In this type of discussion, purposeful awareness of the goings on of the mind is suggested while a chosen topic is being looked at. This allows us to listen to others and observe ourselves in the process of discovering each subject anew and with clarity, as though encountering it and ourselves for the first time, and to share our spontaneous insight as it arises… Thus, this is an invitation to learn about ourselves and to act on our new discoveries. Then a video will be shown of another spiritual teacher such as Eckhart Tolle, Mooji, Rupert Spira, or Scott Kiloby – the specific person may vary each time – speaking on the same subject.  Finally, there will be another opportunity for group dialogue as time allows.  There is no charge for these events.
