This month’s offering from The Ossining Documentary and Discussion Series (ODDS) is Heal, a scientific and spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions can have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. The free screening will take place on Thursday, January 17th, 2019 at the Ossining Public Library. Seating begins at 06:15 p.m., admission is always free and all are welcome. A panel discussion will follow with expert panelists drawn from nearby communities.
Heal taps into the brilliant minds of leading scientists and spiritual teachers while following three people in their actual high stakes healing journeys. Healing can be extremely complex and deeply personal, but it can also happen spontaneously in a moment. Through these inspiring and emotional stories we find out what works, what does not, and why. The film features Dr. Deepak Chopra, Anita Moorjani, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Michael Beckwith, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Anthony William “Medical Medium”, Dr. Bernie Siegel, Gregg Braden, Dr. Joan Borysenko, Dr. David Hamilton, Dr. Kelly Brogan, Rob Wergin, Dr. Kelly Turner, Peter Chrone, Dr. Darren Weissman, and Dr. Jeffrey Thompson.
ODDS volunteer Paul Stark said, “With every new year the need for healing, and a different approach to preserving and regaining our health, becomes more urgent. It’s a great thing to begin this year with Heal’s message of new hope and unexpected possibilities.”
As Mira Sorvino puts it, “Seeing Heal was a transformative experience. It gave me a new appreciation for the incredible power of the mind and our own ability to change our health. I was very inspired to look at my own life and body in a new way – from passivity to transcendent empowerment.”
As always, the screening will be followed by a panel discussion. Every month panelists with expertise in the film’s subject matter generously volunteer to help shed light on the issues raised. Audience members are encouraged to respond honestly and ask their questions. The panel for this film consists of: Laurie Gershgorn, Chef and Owner of Good Choice Kitchen; Alan Levin, Psychotherapist and Owner of Sacred River Healing; and Leah Sasha Schwartz, National Certified and NYS Licensed Acupuncturist, Doctoral Candidate, and Owner at Lifted Heart Healing Arts.
The Ossining Documentary and Discussion Series is organized by a committee of volunteers committed to bringing their “community together one film at a time.” This will be the group’s 63nd screening since its founding in 2013 by Victoria Gearity, Mayor of the Village of Ossining and Suzie Ross, Chair of Green Ossining. The public is invited to visit OssiningDocumentaries.org to learn about more upcoming films on a wide variety of topics.
Screenings are always free and all are welcome.
