Mindful Movie Night
The Midwest Alliance for Mindfulness occasionally organizes special screenings of films at local theaters that feature related practices or reflect our values. We pick movies that fit our vision of a kinder, more peaceful, and compassionate world.
- A Quest for Meaning: Thursday August 30th at 7:30 pm at Leawood Town Center 20 (tickets are $12.00 and are available at https://www.tugg.com/events/a-quest-for-meaning-w7io).This uplifting documentary tells the story of two childhood friends and their life-changing journey around the world. Equipped with nothing more than a tiny camera and a microphone, Marc and Nathanael will attempt to uncover the causes of the current world crises and discover a way to bring about change. Through the messages of environmental activists, philosophers, biologists, and guardians of the ancient cultures, they invite us to join their adventure and partake in their questionings of the world. Marc and Nathanael’s quest gives confidence in our ability to influence things for the better. Change is at hand all over the world – a change in consciousness, motivated by our need to live in harmony with ourselves and with the world. Quest tells the tale of an inspiring, life-changing journey that renews our confidence in our capacity to bring about change, within ourselves and within society.Right after the show, a panel of local activists will briefly offer participants some practical tips for how everyday people can play a role in bettering the world. They will help us be the change we want to see! Speakers: Environmental activist Sami Aaron of TheResilientActivist.org and Social justice activist Ave Stokes of TraumaMattersKC.org
