Together we will be watching the film...
Looking at the spiritual and psychological affects of the worldwide phenomenon of "sleep paralysis."
The Nightmare is a 2015 American documentary film directed by Rodney Ascher. The documentary focuses on eight people suffering from sleep paralysis, an occurrence where people find themselves temporarily unable to move, speak, or react to anything while they are falling asleep or awakening. Occasionally this paralysis will be accompanied by physical experiences or hallucinations that have the potential to terrify the individual. In the film, Ascher interviews each participant and then tries to re-create their experiences on film with professional actors.
After the movie we will be discussing the very probable scientific and potential spiritual explanations of such occurances. Happening to differing people of varying ages, nationalites, religions and locations.
Is it astral projections?
REM sleep cycles?
Caused by stress and anxiety?
