  • Inspirational Film Circle – Patch Adams

    Posted Aug 17th, 2014 By in Archives With | No Comments Patch Adams Banner 2 Inspirational Film Circle
    A Tribute to Robin Williams
    Fri 5th Sept 2014
    7pm-10.30pm

    The Film

    PATCH ADAMS is fact-based story of an unconventional physician who attempted to heal patients with laughter. Based on his own book and mixing equal doses of scatological humour and pathos Robin Williams stars as Hunter Adams, a troubled young man who commits himself to a mental institution in the late 1960s.

    His experiences there convince Adams to become a doctor, and he enrols in medical school, where he is appalled at the cold, clinical professionalism that alienates patients from their caregivers. Determined to provide emotional and spiritual relief as well as medicine, Adams clowns around for his patients, getting to know them personally.

    Although his efforts seem to work wonders and the hospital nursing staff is grateful for the levity Adams provides, his methods alienate his uptight roommate Mitch (Philip Seymour Hoffman) as well as the staff and faculty of his school.

    Adams perseveres, however, even starting his own low-cost rural clinic called the Gesundheit Institute, and wooing a pretty fellow student, Carin (Monica Potter). Tragedy strikes, and Adams’ career is put in jeopardy, forcing him to defend his style and philosophy before a board of jurists determined to bar him from practicing medicine.

    PATCH ADAMS (1998) was produced by former M*A*S*H (1972-83) star Mike Farrell, who met the real-life Adams when the offbeat doctor served as an advisor to the actor’s popular TV series.

    Welcome to the
    INSPIRATIONAL FILM CIRCLE

    The Inspirational Film Circle is held in the intimate and tranquil setting of Thorpe Village Hall – away from the hustle, bustle and noise of multi-screen cinemas.

    Each month, Naked Dragon offers a different Inspirational Film for your enjoyment. Our choice of award winning films is based upon each film’s inspirational message and its ability to Connect with Our Hearts – as well as our minds.

    heart of film

    Part film society, part book club style, the Inspirational Film Circle gives you the opportunity to truly enjoy and explore each film and to connect with other like-minded film goers.

    The evening will begin with an Introduction of Our Featured Film before we sit back and relax in our informal seating. Following the screening, we will have a fun and lively discussion as we explore the key themes of the film and how these have inspired us.

    Inspirational Talk
    Wed 5th March 2014
    7.30pm-10pm

    Loveability: To Know How to Love & Be Loved

    “Your destiny is not just to find love; it is to be the most loving person you can be”.

    The Simple Maths of Love is:-

    The more you love – the more you enjoy Happiness, Success, Abundance, Health and all Good Things in Life.

    Conversely, not loving enough is the root cause of every problem and conflict in your life and on our planet. 

    In this evening’s talk Robert will share the key themes and principles from his 3-day Loveabiity program.

    These include:

    1) The Truth about Self-Love

    2) Undoing the Basic Fear

    3) Releasing Blocks to Love

    4) The Miracle of Forgiveness

    5) Why Love Really is the Only Sane and Satisfactory Answer to Human Existence.

    Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to spend an evening with The King of Love and Happiness!

    Robert Talks About Inspiration, Miracles & Life’s Lessons

    robert-holden-loveMy work is an expression of everything that inspires me. My whole life, I have had wonderful teachers. My family was my first classroom, and I learned enough lessons here to last a lifetime!

    At 18 years old, I enrolled on a 3-year program to study psychology and philosophy. Here I met my first mentor who introduced me to spiritual texts like The Bhagavad Gita, The Upanishads, The Tao Te Ching, and The Dhammapada. I have been learning ever since.

    I am a student of A Course in Miracles, since 1992, and a Patron of The Miracle Network UK. I study The Enneagram, and have trained extensively with The Enneagram Institute. I deliver leadership programs worldwide, and I am a Fellow of The Leadership Trust.

    I am inspired by Tom Carpenter, my friend and mentor for 20 years, and his work with The Forgiveness Network. I am also an Elder for the One Spirit Interfaith Foundation.
