Month of November, 2011
Eileen Fisher, the great American clothes designer, let us screen CRAZY WISDOM at her extraordinary offices in Irvington, New York on Friday night. (Nov. 18) One of Chogyam Trungpa’s most immediate and pertinent teachings was the importance of environment, and how the look and feel, the authenticity, functional beauty, the simple space affects how we manifest in the world. It affects our creativity, our attention span, our confidence. It’s about how positive, open space produces positive open energy. Fisher’s building, a sustainable, light-infused, loft-like space (I especially appreciated The Lactation room!!) was a beautiful setting for CRAZY WISDOM. It hosted a full house and a good time was had by all ( I can usually tell by the laughter and the tears). Thank you Eileen, for coming to see and host CRAZY WISDOM.
And now, I’m in Boston, getting ready for a screening at the famous Coolidge Corner Theatre, Monday night, Nov. 21. We’re hoping to pack the 400 seat theatre for our first screening in the Boston area. Since I grew up in nearby Belmont, it feels like I’m bringing the film home.
And the Phoenix (Boston’s cool, free weekly) has a nice welcome. Check it out.
