Dharma Movie Night: The Matrix // Sat, March 19, 7pm
Please join us for a screening of a little known screen gem called The Matrix. Starring Keanu Reeves (Little Buddha, 1993) The Matrix popularized the use of a visual effect known as "bullet time," which allows the viewer to explore a moment progressing in slow-motion as the camera appears to orbit around the scene at normal speed. Back in 1999, the movie-viewing audience's collective reaction was, like, whoa. It is now 2011. The Three Jewels Dharma Movie Night is back. Things change. But have no fear, the story still packs a wallop.
Following the viewing, the ineffable meditation teacher, Chelsea Bailey will give a talk on the parallels between Neo's inner journey and transformation and Tibetan buddhist teachings on emptiness.
Hosted by the lovely emanation Monisha Raja, this will be a fun night for all who come. The Three Jewels will provide refreshments - pizza, beverages, popcorn, chocolate....
There is a suggested donation of $7. Give what you can. All are welcome.
