Film Screening: “As She Is” With the Film Maker Megan McFeely
June 15, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Co-presented by Catherine Kormendy and Transition Guelph, Megan McFeely will be visiting Guelph on Wednesday June 15th with a special visit to Silence for a screening of her film, “As She Is”.
“As She Is” is a film about both social activism and personal transformation as Megan McFeely explores the topics of masculine and feminine in our culture and in each of us. Starting with her own personal story and expanding to interview some of the great minds of our time, Megan unravels this fresh approach to the topic of feminine power. She often asks the question “what does it mean to be feminine?” and continues to explore how our currently masculine dominated culture has an affect over other areas such as environmental issues, social equality, and cultural well-being.

Quotes from others
“As She Is is a beautiful, heartfelt film that takes viewers on a journey towards healing and wholeness. Highly recommended.” ~ Tracy Cochran, Parabola Magazine
“As She Is beautifully portrays the nature of this feminine energy, how it has been repressed in cultures around the world, and how its emergence can set a new direction for the human community. The film inspires us to reflect deeply on how each of us, male and female alike, can help restore the feminine to its rightful role so that we can evolve a more balanced human society in harmony with the natural world.” ~ Dena Merriam, Founder, Global Peace Initiative of Women and the Contemplative Alliance
“Your film is really beautiful and profound. I think people watching it will gain a really clear image of what the Feminine is and how it is absent or included in their lives. It is an excellent counter-balance to that madness that is so much in the American and, sadly, the European psyche as well as in the Muslim one. My gratitude for what you have given to the world.” ~ Anne Baring, author and founding member of Rising Women, Rising World
“As She Is embodies the truth of a real search for what is needed in this world, the feminine heart. In her film, Megan McFeely with extraordinary authenticity, has shown the relationship between the maturing of the individual and the wisdom of the culture, knowing that they are interdependent, thus giving each of us the capacity to impact the whole.” ~ Sharman Ahmad, Peace Activist and daughter of first Prime Minister of Bangladesh
