Documentary focuses on the power of the mind to heal

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The body has everything it needs to repair itself including one of the most powerful medics in the universe: the mind. In the new documentary Heal, writer and director Kelly Noonan Gores said, “I wanted to sit down with these teachers and see what was truly possible. It feels like so many people are sick these days, and that they are ready to hear this information.”

Noonan Gores, who lived in Wilson for a time, will be in town to introduce her new film and take questions from the audience after the screening.

The film opened to theatrical release October 20, and has played to sold-out screenings in LA, New York, and other markets as well as being featured in several recent film festivals.

“I’m really excited to be presenting Heal in Jackson and Wyoming,” Noonan Gores said. “This is such a uniquely robust and special community, with a remarkable focus on health, wellness and natural living. I loved my time in Jackson and am anxious to share this film and its ideas, which have helped transform my life, to the community.”

Jackson Hole Center for the Arts and Treeline Events, in conjunction with the Riverwind Foundation and local natural wellness providers, will host a screening of Heal, a nationally acclaimed documentary on the healing powers of the mind, as well as a wellness fair on November 15 at 7:00pm.

The film event also includes a popup natural wellness fair, which will take place in the Center lobby, featuring practitioners from the local Jackson holistic wellness provider community starting at 5:00pm. The wellness fair is being coordinated with NewWu: Modern Wellbeing Magazine.

Tim O’Donaghue, executive director of the Riverwind Foundation, which is helping put on the event, said he is excited by the event to help stimulate the holistic wellness community in Jackson. “At Riverwind, we focus on the sustainability of our community, our natural resources and our people,” he noted. “Integrating a total approach, to include full integration of mind and body, is key to sustainable health. We hope this film provides our community with a broader perspective on that integration.”

Tickets for the film are $15 and are on sale at the Center Box Office. Admission to the health fair is free and starts at 5:00PM.
