Practice Session & Discussion in support of the people of Tibet

Many of us are familiar with the deteriorating situation within Tibet over the past couple of weeks. China has recently expelled tourists and foreign journalists from the Tibetan Autonomous Zone, and cut communications from this region. At the same time thousands of military personnel have been deployed to quell a growing unrest. With the Summer Olympics around the corner, all eyes are on China to see if it will revert to its brutal policies regarding the Tibetan people or if it will step up as a global citizen and engage in meaningful dialogue to find some peaceful resolution to this ongoing conflict.

For those who feel a connection or concern for Tibet, the ancestral lands of Shambhala, and its people, the Victoria Shambhala Meditation Centre will be hosting a brief practice session (including tonglen) and discussion about possible local responses to this situation - Thursday, March 27th from 7- 8 30pm at the Victoria Shambhala Meditation Centre,
#1 - 2033 Belmont Avenue

Please feel free to forward this invitation to others who may be interested. I
f you cannot make it this Thursday but would like to be involved or have any questions please contact Silas at
