Hello all -
Based on a model of 'exploring dharma in prison' that Awake in Action organized last year, the Interspiritual Centre contacted us to use the same format and organize a similar event, but expanding the evening to a larger, ecumenical audience base.
If you missed the event that took place at the Vancouver Shambhala Centre Oct. 2007, please come out and support this important film with a very important theme; for those incarcerate, doing time in institutions based largely on violence and aggression, a meditation practice can be the seed of transformation.
If you have questions, please contact me -
For the benefit of all sentient beings -
Hey everyone - for those of you who have seen this already, bring a friend who hasn't! See you there - Jennifer
