Sattva Social Club Movie Night – Aware: Glimpses of Consciousness

January 21, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

The Sattva Social Club will be hosting a ZOOM movie night to watch Aware: Glimpses of Consciousness.
A “Connect to Zoom” link will appear on this event page 15-minutes prior to the starting time.

From the Aware website:

AWARE follows six brilliant researchers, approaching the greatest of all mysteries from radically different perspectives, from within and without: through high-tech brain research and Eastern meditation, by scientifically exploring inner space through psychedelic substances and by investigating the consciousness of plants. Scientists are arriving at new insights – some have been integral to Indigenous knowledge for millenia.

AWARE opens as a science film but emerges well beyond the explicable, ultimately leading one on a voyage upon the ocean of consciousness, a contemplative, sensual, cinematographic meditation. The networks of consciousness are reflected in ‘grand’ imagery revealing the vast interconnectedness of Nature – from the smallest organisms, to the world of plants and animals and on to the cosmos. It invites one to experience the awe and mystery of life as the researchers do, to dive in with them, returning to see the world anew, to review long-held beliefs and assumptions and initiate one’s own oceanic journey. Ultimately, to be aware one is aware.
