Family and Friends,

It is my honor to invite you to attend a special event bringing together Southeast Michiganders of many different walks of life for a one-time film showing and discussion forum around the visionary "Zeitgeist" movement: this Thursday, January 20th, 7pm at the Royal Oak Main Art Theatre. Titled "Zeitgeist: Moving Forward" (here is an extended trailer), this is the third major film coming out of the Zeitgeist movement, which began in 2007 and has since grown into an international phenomenon raising the consciousness of humanity's true potential beyond the current state of affairs. The film is being released simultaneously this month in 20 languages throughout 60 countries.

"Zeitgeist" is a German word defined as "the spirit of the time; general trend of thought or feeling characteristic of a particular period of time." The tumultuous, unparalleled era of history we now live in could be briefly summed up as an inadequate economic system that is dramatically teetering in the face of technological realities and levels of social consciousness that are both revolutionary in character. This situation has rendered the old systems and institutions obsolete, demanding an entirely new paradigm be created to fulfill our true potential.

If you believe the system as it stands is adequate, that "band-aids" will fix our economic system of unending cyclical debt, that there is no pragmatic potential outside of the current monetary paradigm and that war, hunger, disease and exploitation are merely inevitable consequences of human existence, then this film and this movement is not for you. But if you accept that our system of money and debt is a sham that can and must be dismantled, that it is well within humanity's potential to provide itself with an abundance of the necessities of life (leaving NOBODY behind), that technology can provide such levels of collective liberation and that YOU have something to contribute to such a future, then I emphatically encourage you to attend the regional premier of "Zeitgeist: Moving Forward." This is a one-time showing, Thursday, January 20, 7pm at the Royal Oak Main Art Theatre (118 North Main Street, Royal Oak, MI 48067). Tickets are only $5 and can be purchased at the venue's box office.

If you cannot attend this Thursday but are still interested in this growing movement, please feel encouraged to reply to this email saying so and I will be excited to follow up with you!

Sincerely yours,

Your name
