Dharma Film Night

May 11 / 6:30 PM - May 11 / 9:00 PM

"Touch and Go - Chögyam Trungpa's Epic Journey to the West", A video documentary by Grant MacLean

Fifty years ago, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche led hundreds of Tibetans as they attempted to flee their homeland. They trekked for nine months through some of the world's most beautiful and brutal terrain, sometimes in near-Arctic conditions, and towards the end, were forced to eat their leather belts to survive. Touch and Go traces the escape route with the help of Google Earth and Microsoft's Flight Simulator, showing the terrain that was crossed—its extraordinary beauty and its monumental challenges.

We're going to try something other than Pizza this time!  If you are a routine attendee to Dharma Film night please bring a potluck side dish. The Coordinators will provide a meat main course, dessert and non-alcoholic beverages.  This will serve as a welcome gift to first-time attendees who need not bring a thing except themselves!

Of course, if you decide to come at the last minute, please attend whether you have food or not!!  We will get you next time.  :)

Any questions please contact Pat Dunlap or Joel Watson
