CinemaDivina is an emerging body of video essays for contemplative screening.

CinemaDivina films are short pieces created to help foster contemplation, reflection, and inspiration. Each film is created through and for a prayerful process based on an ancient prayer practice called lectio divina. CinemaDivina translates lectio divina to a filmic paradigm. Viewing CinemaDivina films within the context of this contemplative screening practice may be especially beneficial; many have found it to be a process that opens hearts, engages imagination, inspires insights, and awakens the sacred in our lives.

Artist Marilyn Freeman creates CinemaDivina works in the context of a Benedictine Monastery - St. Placid Priory and Spirituality Center where she is an oblate candidate. In particular, Sisters Lucy Wynkoop and Mary Giles Mailhot have provided extraordinary guidance and support. Sr. Lucy is co-author along with Christine Valters Paintner of Lectio Divina: Contemplative Awakening and Awareness, recently published by Paulist Press.
