Do you wish to learn more about spiritual community and living in harmony with your values?

Our friends at New Renaissance Bookshop invite you to join them for kirtan (devotional chanting), community, and a screening of the docu-drama Finding Happiness.

Order of events:

  • Kirtan: 5:30-6:30pm

  • Movie Screening: 6:30-8pm

  • Q & A:  8-8:30pm

The film follows fictional journalist Juliet Palmer, an investigative reporter specializing in stories that expose corruption, when she receives an unusual (and unwanted) assignment from her boss at Profiles magazine: to visit a spiritual community in northern California that has developed alternative solutions to the world’s problems for nearly half a century. While at Ananda World Brotherhood Village, she’ll interview its visionary founder.

With a fair portion of skepticism and a dash of curiosity, Juliet embarks on a professional and personal journey that will open her eyes and change her life.

Filmed on location at the Ananda communities in California, Italy, and India, Finding Happiness follows Juliet as she talks with the real residents of Ananda, who answer her questions and welcome her to a reality she had never imagined possible.

Tickets $10 each; available by calling (503) 224-4929, or by purchase at the front desk or at the door.
