Meal and a Movie

Sat December 28th: 4:00 PM - 7:30 PM

As a celebratory ending to our 3-day Holiday Intensive Sitting Practice, we invite everyone to join us at 4:00 p.m. to enjoy an early dinner and then watch the movie, When the Iron Bird Flies (watch the trailer).

This movie will take us on an up-close and personal journey, exploring the complex interactions between contemporary Tibetan Buddhism and western culture. The film goes in-depth to portray the experiences and insights of both teachers and practitioners in the US and around the world. Along the way, it illuminates the wide ranging dialogs taking place between Buddhist teachings and science, psychology, gender theory and the arts.

The film creates a vivid and entertaining portrait of the world of Tibetan Buddhism, as it is manifesting in the West and asks the vital question — “In these increasingly chaotic modern times, can these age old teachings help us to find genuine happiness and create a saner, more compassionate 21st century world?”



Nyinthun (day-long meditation retreat): 9am – 4 pm.

Set-up for meal:  4 – 4:30 pm

Movie:  5:45 to 7 pm


Come for all or part of the day.  Everyone is welcome.

So that we can send the filmmakers a donation, we are asking for a small donation of $10-20.
