Cofacilitated by Alexandra Arborgast, Local Chapter Leader, Dharma Voices for Animals

Doors open at 6 p.m.

Please join us for a screening of the film “Animals and the Buddha”, directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Keegan Kuhn (“Cowspiracy”, “What the Health”), to raise awareness and encourage deeper reflection on how extending compassion to all animals, particularly the animals we might typically forget about, is consistent with the Buddhist path.

Delicious, healthy plant-based food will be served to give participants a first-hand experience of one of the most powerful and positive steps they can take to reduce the suffering of sentient beings, improve health, and heal the planet.

We will share in group discussion of the film’s message and explore what we can do personally and collectively to arouse more compassion for all beings. 

This venue is not accessible for those with mobility impairments.

Suggested donation of $10 is appreciated to cover costs. All proceeds benefit Dharma Voices for Animals and the work of spreading compassion for animals.

What is Dana?

This event is offered freely. There will be an opportunity to offer dana (a donation) to support the teacher and venue.
