A Cruise for Spiritual Movie Lovers
The “Woodstock” of Spiritual Cinema
By Heidi Metcalfe



When the chill of winter sets in and the warm summer sun is only a faint memory of yesterday, it is time to think about one thing: a vacation.

Look no further than the world’s leading online DVD club, The Spiritual Cinema Circle, for an answer.

In April, The Spiritual Cinema Circle will offer its second annual floating film festival, the week-long Spiritual Cinema Festival-at-Sea. Departing from San Diego on April 22, 2006, movie lovers and like-minded seekers will sail the Mexican Riviera from April 22nd through April 29th aboard Holland America’s luxury cruise liner, the M/S Oosterdam.

“There is no better place than the limitless expanse of the vast Pacific to convene for this annual gathering of the Spiritual Cinema Community,” says Executive Festival Director Stephen Simon, veteran producer of films like What Dreams May Come and Somewhere in Time. “The cruise is so much more than a vacation. It is a time for us to connect, to explore and to celebrate the magic of Spiritual Cinema,” says Simon.

Last year’s special guest, Mark Vicente of What the BLEEP Do We Know!? called the cruise the “Woodstock” of Spiritual Cinema. “Both filmmakers and movie-lovers were magnetically drawn to this gathering of the tribe,” he says.

Best-selling author, Neale Donald Walsch, will join the festivities this year to premiere exclusive footage from the mystical new film based on his life, “Conversations with God”, directed and produced by Stephen Simon, starring Henry Czerny in the role of Neale.  

Spend a week with like-minded people from around the world to watch films about life, love, art and transcendence, and share a week of screenings, snorkeling and spiritual community building. It will be a magical experience for all who attend.
