Come join world-renowned scholar, teacher, and author, Robert Thurman, for a rare Los Angeles appearance at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica. The evening will feature teachings, guided mediation and conversation with the man The New York Times called "the leading American expert on Tibetan Buddhism."
Thurman is a passionate advocate for the truth regarding the current Tibet-China situation. His commitment to finding a win-win solution for Tibet and China inspired him to write his latest book, Why the Dalai Lama Matters: His Act of Truth as the Solution for China, Tibet and the World, published in June 2008.
Musician Joey Lugassy and his band will perform before the start of the program, beginning at 7:00pm. Lugassy, one of LA's most esteemed spiritual musicians, has sung for Thich Nhat Hanh, written a song for Amnesty International, and received two Emmy nominations for best song in a drama series.
