April 24 2012 – “I AM (Movie/Documentary)”

Consciousness, Spirituality No Comments »

Join us on Tuesday April 24, 2012 for our discussion group topic, I AM  (Movie/Documentary) presented by Becky Backert.

I AM,” a prismatic and probing exploration of our world, what’s wrong with it, and what we can do to make it better, represents Tom Shadyac’s first foray into non-fiction following a career as one of Hollywood’s leading comedy practitioners, with such successful titles as “Ace Ventura,” “Liar Liar,” and “Bruce Almighty” to his credit.  I AM recounts what happened to the filmmaker after a cycling accident left him incapacitated, possibly for good.  Though he ultimately recovered, he emerged a changed man.  Disillusioned with life on the A-list, he sold his house, moved to a mobile home community, and decided to start life anew.

Armed with nothing but his innate curiosity and a camera crew, Shadyac embarks upon a journey to discover how he as an individual, and we as a race, can improve the way we live.  Appearing on-screen as character, commentator, guide, and even, at times, guinea pig, Shadyac meets with a variety of thinkers and doers–remarkable men and women from the worlds of science, philosophy, and faith–including such luminaries as David Suzuki, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Lynne McTaggart, Ray Anderson, John Francis, Coleman Barks, and Marc Ian Barasch.  An irrepressible Everyman who asks many questions but offers no easy answers, he takes the audience to places it has never been before, and presents even familiar phenomena in completely new and different ways.  (source)

April 10, 2012 – “The Power of Thought”

Consciousness, Thought No Comments »

Join us on Tuesday April 10, 2012 for our discussion group topic, “The Power of Thought presented by Rory Colgan.

Rory’s main thesis is that the Nature of Life is extremes, opposites, and the interplay between apparent differences for the benefit of sentient consciousness.

This shows up in quantum physics, atomic physics, and our daily interactions in human existence.  In the ups and downs of the human mind, magic happens. It is only useful in the sense that it is harnessed for power, vitality, creativity, and ultimately Enlightenment. Rory will focus on TRUTH, INTELLIGENCE, the parallels between “human problems” and failure to use The Power of Thought.

Through timeless wisdom of the ancients, to the New Age movement many of us believe or know that the mind functions off of thought. So what is thought?  A form of light.  What does that mean?  Where does it come from?  How is thought indestructible?  How is thought permeable?  What is the metaphysical nature of thought and how can we trace it into the physical?   How can we objectively observe the structure of thought?  How do we create thought?
