17th June – Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock.
Indigenous water protectors are coming from Standing Rock, North Dakota to present this new film about the standoff between North American Indigenous groups, and a highly-militarised police force driving corporate interest groups. The water Protectors will be going on to show the film at Glastonbury, and added a stop in at triyoga along the way.
29th July – One Track Heart: the story of Krishna Das
Set in 1970, this movie shows the life of Jeffrey Kagel. Walked away from his American dream of rock n roll stardom as lead singer for the band Blue Oyster Cult. Instead he sold all his possessions and moved from the suburbs of Long Island to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness. The movie follows his journey to India and back, witnessing struggles with depression and drug abuse, to his eventual emergence as Krishna Das, world-renowned spiritual teacher and Grammy nominated chant master. The 72-minute documentary finds Krishna Das in the foothills of the Himalayas where he lived and learned to chant and play a harmonium.
9th September – As she is
‘As She Is’ takes us along filmmaker Megan McFeely’s personal journey as she rediscovers the femininity of the human psyche. The film proves to be essential for our survival and wholeness in this time of global crisis and opportunities. It explores how masculine domination and drive can give way to feminine relation and belonging. McFeely explores our natural capacity to relate, receive, merge and express feminine power. A brave and vulnerable celebration, the artful film gracefully blends story and conversation, amplifying each with stirring music and stunning images of our wildly creative planet.
‘This is my personal inquiry, but I have a sense that this film is also about our collective journey towards wholeness because I am simply a microcosm of the macrocosm, and so are you.’
Triyoga opened its doors on the 19th February 2000. Founder, Jonathan Sattin’s vision was to create the highest quality centre for true well-being, combining three key elements of yoga, pilates + treatments. His idea was to offer great teachers, authentic styles of yoga in a gorgeous uplifting environment and that yoga could be for everyone – regardless of age, size, gender, fitness, diet and lifestyle. Today there are four centres. The new addition to the triyoga family is triyoga in Camden which opened in 2015.
About Candlelight Cinema
While watching the film, two candles are lit either side of the screen, representing the energy that we share, and that we all stem from one source. We’re all neighbours embodying many levels of consciousness within the spheres of our shared precious planet. There are many inspiring films that never make it in the Cinema’s or on TV due to the distribution companies not believing there is an audience interested in them. So, Candlelight Cinema intends to bring viewers the world’s best social, environmental and life changing films delivered to move hearts and minds towards positive action.
Time: 7:15pm – 8:50pm
