Patrice Simon & Frank Alaghband
Laguna Beach resident and veteran Bikram Yoga teacher, Patrice Simon brings the community together through film. On Sept. 19, over 100 folks gathered together to watch the documentary, Mantra: Sounds Into Silence at Edwards Big Newport in Fashion Island. Before the film opening attendees were guided through a 20-minute meditation and chant by Frank Alaghband, a close friend to Patrice and fellow Bikram Yoga teacher. Both Patrice and Frank teach the original Bikram Yoga series at Pacific Blue Yoga in Laguna Beach (Pearl St. & S. Coast Hwy.).
 
The evening was beautiful according to Patrice, "everyone felt a magnificent energy and closeness through the collective effort of chanting, meditating and viewing this incredible film. Attendees are asking for more evenings like this." 
 
"In an age of isolation, social media addiction and self-disconnect, using group meditation and conscious film viewing are creating a shift into real human connection again," says Patrice.
 
The next gathering is on Wednesday, Oct 24, 2018, at Edwards Big Newport. The film The Doctor from India will be screened at 7:30pm. Meditation and chant under Frank Alaghband's guidance will begin around 7:10pm.
 
Tickets must be purchased online through Gathr.us. The film ID - 24925. Tickets are $15. Watch the trailer.
 
Please join in. Patrice can be reached by email. patricesimon@aol.com for questions.
