Did you know that you can help bring a small indie movie to a local theater? I didn’t either until a friend emailed me asking if I was interested in seeing a buzzy new documentary she’d become a “movie captain” for. The film, Walk With Me, is a documentary that goes deep inside a Zen Buddhist community in France to explore what it means to live in a true state of mindfulness.
Mindfulness is everywhere these days — from my 7-year-old who took mindfulness classes in first grade to the shelves of Barnes & Noble, where there are numerous books on the subject. But there’s still a lot of confusion as to what it truly means. Is it about letting your mind rest and meditating — or is it about being so in tune with your surroundings in the present moment? Or both? Let this documentary bring clarity since it follows world-famous monk and mindfulness teacher Thich Nhat Hanh who is considered a Zen master. (Just the trailer left me feeling inspired.)
Anyway, here’s the really cool part: My friend organized a Westchester screening of the movie at the Bowtie Cinemas in Bronxville on November 1 at 7:30pm. That means that if enough people sign up to see it by October 24th, the movie theater will order the movie and run it for about 50+ people. If you buy your ticket and not enough people show up, they’ll automatically refund your money. Come! We’ll be there!
