May 5    Mysterious Universe - Madame Helena Blavatsky  Audio Recording by Gary Lachman (Facilitated by Gary Contesti)

Gary Lachman discusses his new biography, ‘The Mother of Modern Spirituality’, Madame Helena Blavatsky. Still being hailed as an icon and scorned as a fraud more than 120 years after her death, Blavatsky was a mystic, occult writer, child of Russian aristocrats, who traveled five continents, and founded the Theosophical Society.  Gary, the acclaimed spiritual biographer behind volumes such as Rudolf Steiner and Jung the Mystic, brings us an in-depth look at Blavatsky, objectively exploring her contributions toward introducing Eastern and esoteric spiritual ideas to the West, as well as the controversies that continue to colour discussion on her life and work.

 May 26  What The Health  Video by Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn (Facilitated by Winnie Wylie Standish and Miles Standish)

What The Health is a surprising, and at times hilarious, investigative documentary that will be an eye-opener for everyone concerned about our nation’s health and how big business influences it.  The film exposes the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars, and keeping us sick.
