We will be having 2 events with Rev. Sumedha in the month of August. They are :
A. 13 August 2011 (Saturday)
1. Movie viewing “The Dhamma Brothers” followed by discussion
2. Lunch dana
Time : 9am – 11.30am
Synopsis: “The Dhamma Brothers” tells a dramatic story of human potential and transformation as it closely follows and documents the stories of a group of prisoners as they enter into this arduous program. It will challenge assumptions about the very nature of prisons as places of punishment rather than rehabilitation. Despite the difficulty in obtaining permission to film inside a prison, the Alabama Department of Corrections allowed a film crew to document, not only the Vipassana program, but many other scenes and settings revealing the daily lives of prisoners and staff.
The stories of the men at Donaldson Correctional Facility are those of the unseen, unheard, and underserved. This film shines a spotlight upon society’s outcasts and untouchables as we witness them on their Odyssean journey into their misery to emerge with a sense of peace and purpose.
B. 20 August 2011 (Saturday)
1. Workshop on Satipathanna Sutta
– A quick revision on has been covered in the previous 4 lessons plus some hands on activities.
This workshop is opened to all, including those who have not attended the earlier lessons.
You will be able to bring home something useful.
2. Lunch dana
Time : 7am – 11.30am
