We're letting loose and allowing them to run the show, with proceeds going to support their cause. We'll be rotating through non-profits and local sponsors each month to spread the love as much as we can. It's a win-win! Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram @FlickItFridays to stay in the loop.

Dying To Know: Ram Dass and Timothy Leary
 Dying To Know: Ram Dass and Timothy Leary
Wednesday, August 31 at 7:15pm – 'New Non-Fiction Film'

In the early sixties Harvard psychology professors Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert (who later became Ram Dass) began probing the edges of consciousness through their experiments with psychedelics. The establishment soon became fearful of their movement and fired them both. Leary became a missionary for mind altering drugs, and ignited a global counterculture movement. He landed in prison multiple times after Nixon called him “the most dangerous man in America”. Meanwhile Alpert journeyed to the East becoming a spiritual teacher and the author of the ground-breaking ‘Be Here Now’. Now 50 years later, a new documentary arrives with narration by Robert Redford and with the voices of such visionaries as Andrew Weil , M.D. who was a fellow Harvard colleague. (95 mins)

Post-film discussion:
Tim Sanderson, M.D. is a Jungian Analyst, psychiatrist, art therapist, and Assistant Professor in the Graduate Art Therapy and Counseling Program at EVMS.
Graham Schweig, Ph.D. is a Professor of Philosophy at CNU and an author and translator of Classical Vedanta texts including an original adaptation of the Bhagavad Gita..
Tom Crockett is a teacher, artist, photographer and the author of several books including 'One Drop Awareness: Picturing Enlightenment and Nonduality' and 'Stone Age Wisdom: The Healing Principles of Shamanism'.

"'Dying to Know' is a love story, but not in a physical sense; instead, the love here thrives in the spiritual realm, an intimacy that makes this biographical documentary quite appealing." – David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle

"Nothing tops the discussions of mortality between Leary and Ram Dass, during which both of these battered but unbowed explorers of reality come off as nothing less than enlightened." – Marc Mohan, Portland Oregonian
