MOVIES FROM THE HEART
I’m inspired by films that move me emotionally and lead me to think and learn about what it means to live more heart-connected and in oneness with my authentic self. An important part of my learning comes from discussing my thoughts and feelings. I will suggest a new film every Tuesday. I hope that by sharing my favorite movies that this site touches off discussions that can be part of that experience for you.
This week’s movie is DANGEROUS BEAUTY
Dangerous Beauty is based on the true story of a 16th century woman facing many challenges in living in integrity with her true self. At a time when only women who were courtesans could be educated, Veronica Franco chooses a life that allows her to develop her mind, personal power and creative ability through poetry. The film concludes when facing death at the hands of the Inquisition she speaks directly from her heart to ours.
- What are some of the choices you have faced, or are facing in living true to yourself?
- What are the negative consequences of compromising your integrity?
- What are your fears of standing squarely in the truth of what you think and feel?
- What do you need to do and what support would be helpful in overcoming those fears?
