Fearless Compassion

An Online Retreat with Venerable Robina

7 – 8 November 2020

Discover the inner strength and resiliency that comes from true compassion. Often we associate compassion with passivity, but in fact, true compassion is powerful. As His Holiness the Dalai Lama says “The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your actions will be.”

Return to Gandhi Road - Movie Night

6:30pm Saturday 14 November At Colville Community Hall

About the film:

Return to Gandhi Road is a New Zealand-made film on the extraordinary life story of Kangyur Rinpoche and of the select few Westerners who discovered him in Darjeeling India in the early 1970’s. Told through the eyes of one of Kangyur Rinpoche’s first Western students, New Zealander Kim Hegan, will trace the journey he made from New Zealand to Darjeeling 45 years earlier, to tell Rinpoche’s story.

About the film-maker: 

The film is directed by New Zealander Yeshe Hegan. The film is told by her father Kim Hegan. Yeshe lives locally in Thames and will be here on the night for question and answers. 

Join us for an interesting evening!

Death Cafe

7pm Wednesday 18 November 

At the Foragers Cafe, Colville
At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea, and discuss death. The object is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives. A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

Everyone warmly welcome!
