Mantra: Sounds into Silence with post-film discussion

Mantra: Sounds into Silence with post-film discussion
One Night Only! Tuesday, May 14! Suzin Green will introduce the film and lead a post-film discussion after the film. 

This film is a part of Hopewell Theater's ongoing The Art of Living Well series featuring inspiring films, speakers and interactive discussions exploring ways of cultivating serenity, meaning and a deeper connection to one’s self and the world.

MANTRA – Sounds into Silence is a feature-length documentary that charts the history, expansion and effect of the new music and social phenomenon of chanting. It focuses on the everyday people who are finding healing and a sense of inner peace by singing mantras together with others just like them, but it also features the artists and musicians who are the focus of this new music-based movement. It’s a film about spirituality not religion, it’s about people reconnecting with their true selves and finding meaning in their lives.

As our characters’ stories about their connection to the music unfold, we meet the musicians who have inspired them deeply. Through these encounters, we will discover how Deva Primal & Miten, Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur, Lama Gyurme, Jai Uttal, MC Yogi and others came to this music themselves and to the practice of Kirtan*, and how, over the years, it transformed their lives too.
 

Directed by Georgia Wyss.
Runtime: 85 mins.
Rating: NR

About Suzin Green: 
A gifted musician and healer with roots in western classical, improvisation, and the avant- garde, Suzin was one of the early voices of the American Yoga and Kirtan scene.  Her chant-based albums Hearts on Fire (2000) and Devi Demo (2001) are genre classics and her recently released albums, Daughter of the Mountain and Mantras of the Sun, have been praised as groundbreaking albums in the field of yoga music. Suzin is also a pioneer in the Expressive Arts Therapy movement. She developed a multi-arts approach to teaching music to children in the '80s, which morphed into the meditation and mantra-based therapies for adults and teens that she offers today.
