Kaleidoscope Movie Magic – July 2019
Kaleidoscope group member Lisa Elin of ReelHappiness.com shares her Reel Happiness Cinema Therapy through a write-up called “Kaleidoscope Group Movie Magic.”
Wonder, curiosity, and delight takes a unique form for each of us — what sparks them in one might leave another cold, and what special focus we choose will differ as well. Perhaps where one is passionate, another is analytical. With this in mind, let’s get to our movie!
This month’s selection is … Tim’s Vermeer.
Texan inventor (and non-painter) Tim Jenison seeks to replicate the painting techniques of the legendary 17th-century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer.
Dir. Teller. Starring Tim Jenison, Penn Jillette. Sony Pictures Classics, 2013.
As You Watch
With Tim’s Vermeer, we find two of the world’s great titans in an [arguably artificial] battle: art vs. analysis, spirituality vs. science, the unfathomable vs. the fathomable.
♦ Notice how Tim’s analytical, methodical temperament differed from that of the artistic genius (who clearly demonstrated an analytical approach of his own), as each pursed his flavor of wonder and delight.
♦ Note how both the artistic inspiration and the linear path brought joy to the practitioner, and how both still demand tenacity!
♦ Observe how Penn Jilette’s perspective as an atheist informs his view of the proceedings, and how that of a person of deep faith or spirituality would reach a very different interpretation …or would it?
Lisa generously provides a handout with watching suggestions (the above represents just a portion!) & guided journaling exercises created specifically for our Kaleidoscope group.

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.
