Cinema Divina with Marilyn Freeman
February 23, 2019
Hosted by Sanctuary Church Seattle
Plymouth Church Seattle UCC
1217 6th Ave
Seattle, Washington 98101
Open your mystical heart in communion with others in this restorative evening of contemplative practice with film screenings and beneficial conversation. Re-imagining the ancient text-based lectio divina prayer practice as a sacred film viewing process, Marilyn Freeman will engage participants in meditative screenings of short films made for contemplation and in generative conversation.
Come solo or come with others, most importantly come open hearted. As you think about attending, notice what your heart is longing for presently. Maybe you are seeking stillness, inspiration or insight, or connection. Maybe you simply need rest. Whatever you are seeking, bring your heart’s desire. Know you will find yourself among kindred spirits. And bring a pen and notebook if you like to write.
