Does anyone know of any
films that have to do with Spirituality?
I would like to be able to sit down and watch a nice film without it being all about ghosts and things that go bump in the night.
Feel free to post films about astrology and alternative healing if you know of any.
Love and light to all.
It's probably 20 years old - film stars Ellen Burstyn. Its out on tape and DVD, I believe, and may be on netflix...
Also, check out GAIAIM TV...lots of options...

Concerned with spirituality but about keeping family traditions.
The Keeper:The Legend of Omar Khayyam (2005) starring Vanessa Redgrave.
A movie made by a Persian, Kayvan Mashayekh, about the life of Omar Khayyam of Naishapur, that shifts between his time and the present day people of Persian descent in Houston.
Omar is childhood friends with Hassan. Hassan grows up and becomes a religious fanatic. His followers were the Hashashin, where the words "hashish" and "assassin" come from. (This is historically verified.)
Omar is court astronomer to Sultan Malikshah.
Hassan urges Omar to join his crusade because he has religious authority.
Omar says, "And just WHO.........has......absolute.....religious......authority?
Omar also says, when Hassan asks him to join his jihad, "The Holy Koran says that the most excellent jihad is conquest of self."

The guy that plays Omar (Bruno Lastra) is quite handsome)!!
Omar Khayyam was an astronomer, mathematician and poet, author of the famous Rubaiyat, a book of four-lined stanzas.
Into Great Silence
In this contemplative documentary from filmmaker Philip Gröning, the Grande Chartreuse monastery opens its doors to the public for the first time since being founded by St. Bruno in 1084 to offer an intimate look at a lifestyle rarely experienced by those outside of the brotherhood. Located in the remote regions of the French Alps, near the Dauphiné Alps, the Grande Chartreuse is the top monastery of the Carthusian order.
It's available for live streaming on Netflix.
I got a lot out of it. Hope you enjoy.
It's not a spiritual move per se, only maybe to the extent that all movies (as with all works of art) could be seen as spiritual movies -- in their own way:
