The Timeless Wisdom of Meryl Streep

Films: Multiple

In this session, we will:

1. View various scenes from movies starring Meryl Streep

2. See how those scenes are connected to various universal themes, such as detachment, vulnerability (opening the heart), healing family conflicts, and facing personal pain.

3. Consider how those themes can be integrated into our lives.

(Using scenes from mainstream movies, "The Zen of Hollywood" examines universal life principles from ancient wisdom traditions, combining mainly spirituality (not religion) and psychology in a practical manner, as a way of helping us improve our lives and realize true success, inner fulfillment, and lasting happiness.)

Come join us for good people, good energy, and a stimulating session on how to improve our lives through scenes from good movies.

Program Outline:

19.15 Welcome! Meet and greet over a glass of wine, beer, or beverage and “pica-pica”.

20.00 Start of session. As part of a fun activity, we will form small groups and each group will try to guess which film each scene comes from (with points for correct answers). We will also briefly discuss each scene, and apply the life lesson to our lives.

19.45 End of session. Optional: For those who wish to continue the discussion and enjoy another drink, we will do so until 22:15.

Cost: €5 (suggested price: €6 - 10). Those who have attended our events will tell you that what we offer is good value. So, the minimum price is €5, but we ask you to consider adding up to €5 more, your choice. Again, you choose between €5 and €10 (or anything in between). PLEASE NOTE: drinks are extra at €1 each. Comes with "pica-pica."

Meryl Streep is considered by many to be the greatest living actress. With an amazing 21 Oscar nominations and 3 wins, it's hard to argue the point.
She has an incredible ability to inhabit a wide range of characters to the point that you feel that she IS that character. Perhaps she is most famous for the heartbreaking sadness, vulnerability, and tenderness she often portrays. Like her movies or not, her acting performance is often worth the price of admission alone. But can we enjoy anything other than just a couple of hours of entertainment with her films? Yes. Because Truth is both universal and omnipresent (everywhere), we can find it in movies starring Meryl Streep. Come join us for a fun session as we explore the ancient wisdom delivered by one of Hollywood's most respected and celebrated actresses.

Note: You don't have to have seen the movies to enjoy this session. We will watch scenes from several films. We will have English subtitles. Please RSVP and try to come no later than 19.50 (but later is possible). We encourage you to come early and enjoy a drink with us! Please bring exact change and a little extra if you want more drinks. Also, bring pen and paper if you'd like to do some exercises or take notes. We will have translation in Spanish, if necessary. Please read the comments section below to get directions to the location.
