Special One-Day Benefit for Tara Mandala: Intimate Dialogue and Afternoon Tea with Pema Chödrön & Evening Concert with Krishna Das

July 29, 2017

Join us for this exciting one-day event with two of the most beloved figures in Dharma and Kirtan in the West!

Bestselling author and Buddhist meditation teacher Pema Chödrön has touched the lives of millions with her down-to-earth guidance for becoming happier, “saner” people in an ever-changing and challenging world. Grammy®-nominated recording artist and Bhakti yogi Krishna Das has been a source of inspiration worldwide through his music, kirtan, and soulful vocals.

The benefit will begin with an afternoon talk with Pema Chödrön who will share her insights into life’s “big questions”- including how we can begin to face uncertainty and engage the unknown – along with practical guidance in becoming more vulnerable, authentic, and present with ourselves and with each other. The audience will submit questions they want her to speak about.  We will all have dinner together and then our evening will be blessed by a special musical performance by Krishna Das who has become a worldwide icon and the best-selling chant artist of all time with over 300,000 records sold on which he sings both Buddhist and Hindu chants.

“I guarantee you one thing…. No one’s problems will be solved. So just forget about everything and sing. Let go and give yourself wholeheartedly to what we’re doing for this short period of time. Sing your heart out and we’ll see what’s left to worry about when it’s over.’” — Krishna Das

This one-day fee is based on a sliding scale of generosity from $160 to $360 which includes the afternoon, dinner and concert. No separate pricing is available for this event. Membership discounts do not apply to this benefit and there are no refunds.

Thank you for your support and enjoy the day with us!
