Mindful Cinema is featuring a Summer-long Environmental Film Festival with biweekly themes on caring for our planet—and a potluck dinner, 6:30–9:30 pm.
Fusing interdependence, international awareness, diversity, and kindness, Mindful Cinema is a gathering for Shambhala Boulder cinephiles and foodies. Welcoming new members, visitors, and committed practitioners, this group shares culinary delights and movies that explore meaningful themes, such as tradition, generosity, loyalty, forgiveness, and death. We screen films from Sundance, Cannes, and other international festivals.
A short discussion follows each film.
This summer our films are chosen for environmental themes and our concern for the planet—water, sustainable farming and food, local economy, well-being, and renewable energy. Throughout the summer, we will also be collecting your nominations and votes for a juried selection to show one of the final nights of the festival.

One Earth Sangha offers a global list of events that express a Buddhist / mindfulness response to ecological crises. We invite you to join or add events that develop and demonstrate our interdependence with all of life! Events that address multiple issues (e.g., racism, economic injustice and environmental health) are encouraged. You’re invited to list events from your local sangha, including earth-oriented day-longs, retreats and even regular sangha meetings. We also want you to share demonstration and direct action events. You, the members of our Sangha, are encouraged to submit events, whether they be from the Dharma community, other faith groups or secular, where you wish to gather other Buddhist / mindfulness practitioners to participate. To submit an event, please email us.
This growing list of events will always be available here and in the main menu under “Get Involved.”
