6:30pm - The Elixir of Life, A Birthday Practice is a short liturgy written by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche for use by Shambhala practitioners on their birthdays. Includes a series of simple yet pithy contemplations which are reminders of one's precious human birth and of the aspiration to help others.

7:30pm - Viewing of An Uncommon King, a documentary film about Sakyong Mipham, 72min. long.

$5 suggested donation for viewing the film
