BuddhaFest 2010 DC June 17-20 American Univ

BuddhaFest 2010 is a 4-day festival of Buddhist film, teachings and entertainment to be held Thursday, June 17 to Sunday, June 20 at the Katzen Arts Center at American University. It is being sponsored by American University's Office of the Chaplain.
Eric Forbis and Gabriel Riera of IMCW are organizing the festival, along with the help of many other volunteers.
The festival’s goal is to engage and inspire non-Buddhists and practitioners alike by presenting films and teachings that take a fresh, contemporary approach to the profound principles of Buddhism. As relevant today as they were over two thousand years ago, the Buddha’s core teachings of self-awareness and compassion for all will be celebrated during the festival.
In partnership with other organizations around the DC area, BuddhaFest 2010 will offer its slate of programming as a way of encouraging a deeper appreciation of Buddhism from a cultural, intellectual and practical perspective. IMCW’s GOOD WORKS program is helping to support BuddhaFest 2010 as a way for IMCW members to work together to be of service in the community. Tara Brach of IMCW, as well as Sharon Salzberg and Betty Rogers, are serving on the BuddhaFest 2010 Advisory Council.
