If you wish to turn off for awhile and ease your spirit, you might be interested in a group that I am subscribed to. It is called Spiritual Cinema circle. It is a wonderful company that produces films. I have received a DVD every month since they started years ago, with some of the most amazing shorts, full length and often award winning, excellent films. If interested, take a look and do their free trial. They are amazing and inspiring. Click the link if your curiosity is peaked!!
Another group, Star Thrower Distribution is one of my favorite places to find films that offer inspiring insights and practical lessons. The offer a wide range of topics and can help you make every gathering more effective. They are passionate about creating engaging training programs with superior production quality and useful support materials. In particular their "Celebrate What is Right with the World" is amazing!
