As You Watch

Click here to review our April forecast, then consider the following as you watch this month’s selection.

  • Notice how Jack’s disharmony comes from within (alcohol, self-inflicted wounds), and Dina’s comes from without (severe debili- tating illness); also ponder where and how they could direct Life or merely respond to it, yet always conduct their own symphony.
  • Observe how their rigidity (Jack’s roguery, Dina’s opinions) starts to overtake their lives, and how this causes disharmony.
  • Watch how each makes major shifts to their life in order to re-align and restore their ability to move forward with integrity (Jack’s major confession) and acceptance (Dina’s bond with the students and willingness to try as much as her body will let her).

Success Tools for Movie Lovers – A Note from Lisa Elin, Cinema Therapy Mentor

Lisa Elin

Watching movies like we’re doing with Brooklyn 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.

Visit Reel Happiness Cinema Therapy for more tools and movies to support you on your path, and please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or requests. I love hearing from you!
