Session 5: Zest, Vitality, and Humor within the Mindful Experience of Viewing Films
This symposium will bring a mindfulness perspective to the experience of viewing 5 feature films (and 1 short one) in which characters exemplify zest, vitality, and humor with the purpose of renewing these qualities in the lives of participants while understanding mindfulness and positive psychology character strengths in our work with others. One film will be shown each of the five days 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, didactic sharing, and group discussion.
Optional, non-CME Tuesday and Thursday evening sessions will be offered in which an additional film will be shown and processed. The films take on an exquisite cumulative power when seen and processed in a group setting at Door County that is truly remarkable and unforgettable.
