A Pema "Potluck"
Five Individual Video Talks by Ani Pema Chödrön

Date: Tuesdays, May 29 - June 26, 2012 (five classes)
Time: 7:00-9:00 PM

Location: Shambhala Meditation Center of Washington DC
Suggested Donation: Each session is free; we will gratefully accept any donation you are inspired to offer when you attend.



We are delighted to begin the summer with video recordings of talks by one of the world's most popular Buddhist teachers, Ani Pema Chödrön. She is well-known for her very clear and relevant teachings and wonderful sense of humor. These talks are suitable for everyone and the topics will vary from week to week. It's like a "potluck" -- come see what is offered, it all will be good!

There is no need to register and no fee, although we will gladly accept donations at each session. The talks will follow the regular sitting meditation on Tuesdays from 6 - 6:45 PM, and tea and snacks from 6:45- 7 PM. The video of Ani Pema will start at 7 and end no later than 9 PM.
