Film: The Sacred Science
Saturday, Aug 25
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Narrow Ridge invites you to join us for our bimonthly Film night Saturday, August 25 at 7:00 p.m. at the Mac Smith Resource Center. Our bimonthly film nights feature films that inspire reflection and discussion about our place within the larger Earth community.

This month's film is The Sacred Science.

Synopsis: Witness the story of eight brave souls as they leave the developed world behind in search of deeper answers. Living in seclusion for one month in the heart of the Amazon jungle, these men and women take part in the powerful healing practices of Peru’s indigenous medicine men, working with centuries-old plant remedies and spiritual disciplines.

In their most desperate hour, these patients suffering from Parkinson’s Disease, Diabetes, Depression and Cancer are forced to confront not only their physical ailments, but their own spiritual and psychological barriers in the process.

Five will return with real results, two will return disappointed, and one won’t come back at all.
