Explore the Claims Made in the Movie: Grounded
Friday, December 13th, 7:00 p.m.
The movie tells the story of an Alaskan wildlife filmmaker's persistent curiosity and quest to test the claims of what appears to be an outrageously simple and too good to be true healing concept. The concept is that physical, bare skin contact with the Earth may have healing power. Who knows? It may change the way you look at the Earth beneath your feet!
