Get Real with Reel Talk: Dinner and Movie with Community

Summer is a time for self-care, whether that be splurging on that pair of sandals you’ve been eyeing, taking some time to read a good book under the sun at your neighborhood pool, or picking up a new favorite hobby. Oftentimes, when we are taking care of ourselves we tend to overlook a crucial component of our wellbeing, our mental health. So, take some time to yourself this summer to relax with your neighbors, watch a film, and enjoy a healthy meal with Reel Talk by Tipping Point Wellness.

Togetherness and community is what Reel Talk is all about!

What is Reel Talk?

Conversation can be powerful. Conversations can provide comfort and foster a sense of community. Reel Talk is a place to have conversations that will engage you with members of your community and cultivate lasting relationships. Once a month Damon and Tim from Tipping Point Wellness host a dinner and movie at Brick Row where community members come together to watch a captivating documentary on a real-world issue, enjoy a dinner made by Chef Tim himself, and converse about topics covered in the film.

Documentaries range in topics from climate change to healthy eating, and Reel Talk meals are guaranteed to be fresh, wholesome, and healthy! In honor of Father’s Day on June 16, this month’s edition of Reel Talk will focus on masculinity in our society, and will feature the film “The Mask You Live In”. Take a look at the trailer below!
