WHAT TO WATCH – LISTEN TO – AND WHY

– NOVEMBER ISSUE –

Dear Friend,

I am excited to write that we have revamped our monthly newsletter. We at Conscious Good realize that time is short and it’s difficult to know what conscious media to watch or to listen to. So we decided to do the work for you. Going forward, each monthly newsletter will include a current theatrical release film review, written by our Contributor Karen Henry, a listing of the best in conscious cinema on streaming platforms, our recommended podcast(s), and, every so often, an interview with a featured Creators Network member. Remember, whenever possible, go to the movie theater to watch conscious cinema; it makes a huge difference, not only for your viewing experience, but also for filmmakers and organizations serving consciousness through visual storytelling (like Conscious Good).

In gratitude,

Trina

Louie Schwartzberg is known for decades of gorgeous time-lapse nature videography which he has employed as an award-winning cinematographer, director and producer. His latest documentary Fantastic Fungi does not disappoint, offering indescribably exquisite nature photography coupled with a message. That message: Mushrooms rule, they always have and always will. Majestic beauty frames every shot, accompanied by a narrative of fantastical fungi facts. We learn of the magnitude of fungi’s importance to our continued existence, as well as the potential healing properties of mushrooms not yet fully explored. read more
