Green Sanctuary Fourth Friday Film – Teach Me To Be Wild
Date(s) - 04/26/2019
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This month we are screening the film Teach Me To Be Wild.
The filmmakers Rajesh Krishnan and Anne Veh will be joining us for this very special evening. After the film John Malloy (featured in the film and Healing Circles) has offered to anchor a healing circle. The film helps create a safe space and it lends itself well for a circle of reflection.
Here is what the filmmakers say about the film:
“This film is a universal healing story that brings together many interconnected elements: children, animals, nature, silence and the power of safe, non-judgemental listening spaces. One of our greatest inspirations to make the film was witnessing how Steve Karlin and John Malloy do not teach the children—rather, they create a “safe space” where the children learn experientially. As we began screening the film in schools, juvenile detention centers, community groups andspiritual institutions, we experienced that the film was also naturally culminating in creating a safe space. Although hurt and vulnerable, the children in the film share deeply with wisdom and clarity. Both the children and the animals visibly heal, creating a container that allows for deep reflection.”
