Reel Spirit Movie Project

Monthly Film Discussion

Coming Attractions


At Center for Spiritual Wisdom, we started the Reel Spirit Movie Project (RSMP) in the middle of 2020, and participants have found it to be a rich place for exploring films in community with each other. The goal of the RSMP, which holds film discussions the third Thursday evening of every month, is to spark meaningful discourse via films that delve into the religious, social, spiritual, and/or mystical dimensions of our human experience.

The format of these film discussions has been well-received by participants, who are encouraged to pursue free and open expression. The organizers of this monthly series strive to create an informal and fun atmosphere, one that’s safe for all to share their views without fear of judgment. The facilitator creates a discussion guide that focuses on key themes for the film, and the guide is shared with all registrants. Participants view the selected film ahead of time on their own. A 2-hour facilitated discussion follows on the appointed evening, hosted online via Zoom.

There is no fee to attend these events! However, donations to Center for Spiritual Wisdom, a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, will be gratefully accepted. A suggested donation of $5 or more per film discussion will help us continue to offer this and similar events.

Stay tuned for the following movie discussions planned by the Reel Spirit Movie Project! Registration for each film will open approximately one month in advance.
