Sunday, October 6th

Noon - 1pm: Guhyasamaja Center: Universal Love
Lorne Ladner presents a talk and guided meditation, based on Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche's unique presentation of a meditation on equanimity and universal love. This teaching is based on Rinpoche's new book, Easy Path: Illuminating the Panchen Lama's Secret Instructions," where he presents a beautiful meditation that includes nine contemplations on Mahayana equanimity.

1pm - 2pm: Heart Songs
Angela Blueskies leads a session that invites you to embrace self-expression. Using embodied meditations on sound that are inspired by yoga, she will lead group chants and facilitate simple and fun exercises that connect your voice and heart, and that encourage the expression of your authentic truth.

2pm - 3pm: Shambhala Meditation Center of Washington, DC Presents
Shastri Jerry Webster leads an exploration into how the practice of meditation allows us to come into contact with our own basic goodness and that of the world around us. In Shambhala Buddhism, as in most forms of Buddhism, love and compassion begin at "home."

3:30pm - 5:00pm: Film - BUCK See Trailer HERE
This film was the documentary winner of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award. BUCK is a richly textured and visually stunning film that follows a real-life "horse-whisperer".
