Mindful Cinema

Bi-weekly on Fridays, 6:30–9:30pm

Fusing international culture, diversity, and kindness, Mindful Cinema is a new gathering for Shambhala Boulder cinephiles and foodies. Welcoming new members, visitors, and committed practitioners, this group shares culinary delights and movies that explore meaningful themes, such as tradition, generosity, loyalty, forgiveness, and death. We screen international films from Sundance, Cannes, and other festivals.

We encourage diffusing culture, diversity, and kindness through the dish you bring and the foreign films we watch together over a nice glass of wine. Join us for a true potluck dinner—your contribution makes it happen! A short discussion follows the film.

Kindly RSVP at the following link and note in the comment section what creative, elegant dish you’d like to bring: https://doodle.com/poll/ew2bt6izz2pysyg9
