Upcoming Workshop

Making the Most of Life

Please join us on Sunday August 23rd from 12:30-3:30pm for a workshop titled Making the Most of Life. Kelsang Sangdrub will share Buddha's wisdom on how we can use our Precious Human Life to benefit all sentient beings.

Sangdrub will be retiring from teaching in September 2015 so this may be the last workshop he will lead. If you have ever heard Sangdrub teach before you know how special his precentations are and you also know that this presentation is not to be missed.

Suggested donations are $25/person at the door. No one will be turned away due to a lack of funds. Pre-registration is not required... and light snacks will be served.

Hope to see you there.
