Session 5: Openness to Belonging in Film: Transforming Intolerance by Embracing the Other as a Way of Resilient Well-being

Egg Harbor, WI US
July 29, 2024 to August 2, 2024
 “We must learn to live together as brothers and sisters--or perish together as fools.” —Martin Luther King, Jr.

Through mindful viewing of 5 feature films—today’s vehicles of myth--participants will open their hearts to the quality of belonging with others and belonging to others that is so important in our time. We will trace how cinema’s greatest directors have depicted intolerance and ways of eventually embracing the other through compassion, love, and recognition of our interdependence as humans. This seminar aims at a mindfulness experience through viewing 5 feature films from Japan, the United States, and the United Kingdom in which inspiring characters embody belonging as a way to resilient well-being for the purpose of renewing these qualities in the lives of the seminar participants and in our work with patients. On each of the 5 mornings, 1 film is shown via Blu-ray video projection and 6 loudspeakers with an introduction and centering process to begin the session and processing after the film focusing on the participant's own experience of the movie including silent reflection, journaling, dyadic sharing, and group discussion. Supplementary optional films (non-CME) will be shown on 2 evenings (Monday and Thursday). Films take on an exquisite cumulative power when shown over 5 days at the DCSI in a group setting that is truly remarkable and unforgettable.
