October 21   CLIFFORD OWENS: YOUR HEAD IS ATTACHED TO YOUR BODY
Williams College Museum Of Art
15 Lawrence Hall Drive - Suite 2
-
Williamstown, MA
Clifford Owens is an artist, writer, and curator. Influenced by performance art practices of the 1960s, he is known for live and photographic works that center on the body. His work often asks audiences to manipulate, move, dress, touch or otherwise engage directly with his body, resulting in spontaneous actions. Owens’s work “Anthology (Benjamin Patterson)”, 2011 will be included in “Active Ingredients: Prompts, Props, Performance.” For the Plonsker program, his performance-based, “audience-sensitive” lecture will be radically different from the standard artist slide talk.

October 24   HEAL DOCUMENTARY SCREENING AND Q&A w/DIRECTOR KELLY NOONAN GORES
Kripalu Center For Yoga And Health
57 Interlaken Road
 - Stockbridge, MA 
(800) 741-7353
Director Kelly Noonan Gores’ documentary takes us on a scientific and spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. The latest science reveals that we are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should we buy into a scary prognosis. The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe. This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all.

HEAL not only taps into the brilliant minds of leading scientists and spiritual teachers but follows three people on 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 doesn’t, and why.

Featuring Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr Joe Dispenza, Anita Moorjani, Bruce Lipton, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Michael Beckwith, Gregg Braden, Anthony William the Medical Medium, Dr. Kelly Turner and many more.

This special documentary screening and Q&A is part of the upcoming program Your Destiny Beyond Your DNA: The Full Potential of Your Consciousness at Kripalu Center from October 23 - 27, 2017.
