The Last Dalai Lama?: Film Screening and Q&A with Director Mickey Lemle

  • Byrd Theatre 2908 W Cary Street Richmond, VA 23220 (map)

Join us at the historic Byrd Theater for a unique viewing of The Last Dalai Lama? with its Director, Mickey Lemle!

The Dalai Lama explains Tibetan Buddhism as both a religion and a “science of the mind.” Anyone, from any tradition, can benefit from experiencing his crystallized understanding of the nature of mind and the part it plays in the creation and alleviation of our suffering. Now in his 80s, the Dalai Lama is passionate about sharing what he feels is most urgent to communicate to the world. He must decide whether or not he will reincarnate as The 15th Dalai Lama, or if he will be the last in this ancient lineage. A Q&A session with Director Mickey Lemle will follow the screening.

Proceeds from this event will support our scholarship fund for mindfulness programming.
