Ehipassiko — Come and See for Yourself
T.B.I.F.: Thank Buddha It's Friday!
Social Dharma Gatherings at NYI
every Friday, March 6–June 26
fee by donation; no pre-registration required
May 15, 2015
07:00 pm - 09:00 pm
This is not your Tuesday Night Dharma! These by-donation sangha evenings will offer more interactive and engaging programs with NYI teachers — e.g. Insight Dialogue, specific topic explorations, mindful movement.
This evening there will be a showing of the short film “ Partly Cloudy” followed by a discussion on Taking the Bad with the Good: The 10,000 Joys and Sorrows.
Fee by donation: Suggested starting donation is $15 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. For this event all donations are split evenly between the teacher(s) and NYI.
