Starts: 3:30 PM

Saturday, September 12th, 3:30pm: Pelican Dreams

Sundance-and-Emmy-Award-winning filmmaker Judy Irving (with her first film since the widely acclaimed and loved “The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill”) follows a wayward California brown pelican from her “arrest” on the Golden Gate Bridge into care at a wildlife rehabilitation facility, and from there explores pelicans’ nesting grounds, Pacific coast migration, and survival challenges of these ancient birds, sometimes referred to as the flying dinosaurs. The film is about wildness, and asks the following questions: how close can we get to a wild animal without taming or harming it? Why do we need wildness in our lives, and how can we protect it? PELICAN DREAMS, stars “Gigi” (for Golden Gate) and Morro (a backyard pelican with an injured wing).

Testimonials

  • The Conscious Nest is an amazing community. I started going to the Nest back in 2008 and have been studing different cultures, religions and spiritualities in depth since 2003.  Since that time, I have attended a variety of classes including Mediumship, Ghost Hunting, Drum Circles, Moon/Wind Lodges and other community based activities.  Each class is taught by a well educated instructor.  These concepts have many different presentations in the different cultures, religions and spiritualities of the world.  I myself am a melting pot of beliefs.  The instructors may be Christian, Buddhist, Pagan, etc and teach based on that viewpoint, but they welcome anyone with an interest in learning.  You do not have to be a specific religion/spirituality to take part, enjoy and learn.  So whether or not you want to explore your spirituality, learn about different beliefs or just hang out with a great group of folks, I highly recommend heading towards the Conscious Nest.
