Sept 30, 2020

It is so deeply gratifying to hear about people's experiences at our gatherings. Here are some comments from the past two screening salon series, The Road to Dharma and Connection & Belonging. Thank you to all for adding your unique ingredients into what ended up being the most delicious recipes for connection, conversation and ripples...

Featured Guests: Christine, your film salons create avenues for true connection and community. Watching amazing content together online and then diving into deep discussions is such a vital and vibrant platform during these times. It was such a joy to participate. - Jeremy Seifert, Director & Cinematographer. Featured Guest, Summer 2020 Salon Series What a gift you have created by holding these events. I feel revitalized as an artist, getting to see how these films land on people and what it sparks for them, and to offer my own backstory and reflections. It’s a special and generous group of people you’ve cultivated. Thanks again for all you do. - Gabriel Diamond, Video Producer, Skoll Foundation & Filmmaker, Outside Films.

Featured Guest, Summer 2020 Salon Series What an overwhelming joy it was to showcase my docuseries, THE ROAD to DHARMA, through this StoneSoup forum and discussion. This is Incredibly unique and so rewarding on a deep and personal level. It’s so rare to get to engage with those that watch and really contemplate your work. It was that personal feeling and knowing of real impact that really keeps one reminded that media can impact lives. - Adam Schomer, Director Producer, i2i Productions.

Xoxo - Karen Wood Christine, thank you for connecting us and for inspiring deeper conversation and connection. Beautiful and courageous! - Cynthia Good I have been moved by all of the RTD sessions, seeing a profound shift and re-awakening of my inner self… These Tuesday evenings… [have been] eye-opening, heart-opening and spirit opening, as well... I learn so much. I would welcome [an 11th session] with these salon-mates as “a community”, especially as we all ponder the integration of what we learned and/or discovered on The Road To Dharma, and look forward to your next Stone Soup Ripple Salons. - Mark Ross Thanks so much for a really interesting and thought-provoking experience. Very glad to be a part of this! - Ani Ohanessian Very special evening - ❤️❤️❤️ - Denise Miller Thank you again Christine for creating such a beautiful salon series. It has opened my heart and helped sustain me during these challenging times. Count me in for the next series for sure.

I feel like I have stepped into a new world with these beautiful and open human beings who emanate so much love and authenticity. I look forward to these screening salons so much. I love that I carve out time to watch the films for the screening salons and I get to be fully present for every moment. I look so forward to next week already. With so much appreciation. - Angela Weller And again, many thanks to you, Christine for your heart, insight, integrity and tireless efforts to make these salons happen. - Mark Ross Christine, thank you again.
