Upcoming 1/2 Day Workshop

Please join AKBC's resident teacher - Western Buddhist monk Kelsang Sangdrub on Saturday Nov. 22nd from 10:30am to 2:00pm at beautiful Glen Williams Historic Town Hall. Sangdrub will offer practical Buddhist advice on how to find and maintain lasting happiness.

The historic Town Hall, located at 1 Prince Street in Georgetown, is a tranquil spot in a busy world, and it is well worth the drive. Experience the energy and enthusiasm of sharing our understandings and deepening your experience. Our last workshop in August was well attended and well received by those in attendance. People attending these workshops seem to bring something very special and we all benefit.

Suggested donation is $25 (but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds).
