Feel free to come and share your own personal insights sometime; the Saturday Night Video and Discussions here in Austin, Texas are a lot of fun and fascinating. (They're free, too.) Here are the questions the group came up with, based on the personal growth themes in the movie:


  1. How can I convey a sensitive, loving wisdom to future generations?
  2. How do my boundaries hold me back?
  3. How have I overcome my boundaries?
  4. How do I release my emotions in a non-destructive manner?
  5. How does shared memory connect me with others?
  6. How much planning do I need to do in order to take a risk?
  7. How risk-tolerant am I, and why?
  8. What's the payoff for me to minimize my feelings? What's the risk?
  9. How can I get the courage to do the things I'm afraid of?
