Kaleidoscope Movie Magic – November 2017
Our Kaleidoscope group recently added a feature we call “Magic from our Members.” Member Lisa Elin of ReelHappiness.com is now sharing her Reel Happiness Cinema Therapy through a write-up called “Movie Magic.”
This month’s selection is The Way Way Back.
Painfully at odds with his divorced mother’s decisions, struggling 14- year-old Duncan discovers solace and friendship under the wing of a nutty water park manager.
Directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. Starring Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Sam Rockwell, Liam James, Allison Janney, Maya Rudolph, Amanda Peet, Rob Corddry, Annasophia Robb, River Alexander. Fox Searchlight Pictures, 2013.
As You Watch
♦ Notice the wise ways in which Owen is playful without being immature; irreverent yet not irresponsible; humorous yet not sarcastic; frank yet not insensitive.
♦ Observe Owen’s stance toward life: how his frolicsome attitude cloaks a marvelously astute perspective; how his good-natured incorrigibility contains a fierce loyalty, with deep maturity and capacity for connection.
♦ Consider the legacy of Owen’s stance in the lives not only of Duncan, but also of Peter (in only a few hours), and of Pam (in a mere few minutes).
Lisa generously shares an awesome report with watching suggestions & guided journaling exercises created specifically for our Kaleidoscope group. Enjoy benefits & perks like this and more when you join our colorful community!
Each month, we take a deep dive into the month’s colors and energy. I also share what you need to know based on your own personal color preferences.
Plus, we explore Angel messages & affirmations for additional inspiration & loving support. Since we have 2 live calls each month, there’s plenty of open Q&A and group share time with me & our members.
Success Tools for Movie Lovers – A Note from Lisa Elin, Cinema Therapy Mentor
Watching movies like we’re doing with Whale Rider is a self-growth approach that inspires natural and lasting change. As we watch with conscious awareness, we help our unconscious become open to new ideas and ways of doing things—leading to enhanced well-being and faster progress toward our goals! It’s the bridge between knowing the path, and walking the path.
