Must See Film!

 In case you missed it: Journey From Zanskar 

The amazing film "Journey From Zanskar," which was screened and discussed by award winning director Frederick Marx at Unity on Wednesday, was so moving that we wanted to make its purchase ($20) possible for those of you who missed it.​

The film is also available for purchase on DVD or as a digital download on warriorfilms.org or through iTunes.

About the Filmmakers 
Warrior Films produces compelling documentary films about solutions to the world's problems: everyday people finding ways to overcome oppressive socio-economic barriers. Most known for Hoop Dreams, we tell transformational stories that transform lives. Though we specialize in stories of the poor, youth, people of color, the dispossessed...each story is issue specific. We go worldwide to tell the right story. 

About the Film
Zanskar is one of the last remaining original Tibetan Buddhist societies with a continuous untainted lineage dating back thousands of
years. In nearby Tibet and Ladakh, in Sikkim, Bhutan, and Nepal, traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture is either dead already or dying. The horror of Chinese government design in Tibet is being matched by the destruction of global economics. Zanskar, ringed by high Himalayan mountains in northwest India, one of the most remote places on the planet, has been safe until now. But that's changing. 
In 3-5 years a road connecting Padum, the heart of Zanskar, with Leh, the heart of neighboring Ladakh, will be finished. The route which previously took up to two days by car will take only 4-5 hours. As economic growth descends on Zanskar it will bring with it an end to this unbroken Buddhist social tradition. Will the native language, culture, and religious practice be able to survive? Watch Journey From Zanskar to discover how two humble monks, far from their Buddhist temple, honor their vows by supporting these remote village children to get a great Buddhist education.

Spiritual  LINKS
We at Unity are open to many paths which lead to the Universal One or God.  We study the Bible metaphysically, and we have hosted Buddhist monks from the Sera Jey Monastery in India, Swami Sankarananda, and followers of KaHuna, the native Hawaiian religion.  We have ongoing classes on  A Course in Miracles and   Science of Being, led by Rudolf Steiner students Renée and Burt Lattimore. We frequently reference Buddhism, Hinduism, the Sufis, and Gurdjieff, and we will be starting a Yogananda Sunday school class soon, all in an effort to access Christ Consciousness. Most importantly, we endeavor to let that Consciousness guide our daily lives. We want to “walk the talk” and be that which we study, as Unity co-founder and mystic Charles Fillmore succeeded in doing.

We are a center of practical spirituality; thus, we enrich our lives through books, music, and healthy lifestyle choices, reinforcing the fact that all beings are one with each other and with the Divine. We believe that this divine connection and perfection can and should pervade our lives. We want to connect the dots between the intellectual, spiritual teachings and our daily endeavors.

We are a very open-minded family of spiritual seekers, and we invite others to explore these spiritual ideas with us.
