CHANGE – Movie Night! Blessings: The Tsoknyi Nangchen Nuns of Tibet
We are sorry to announce that we will be unable to show “A Joyful Mind” at our movie night on June 17. It is to receive its official premiere in October, so we shall all have to wait until then! However, in it’s place, we’ve decided to show the 2009 Film “Blessings: The Tsoknyi Nangchen Nuns of Tibet”, directed by Victress Hitchcock.
Devoted to the ancient practices of Tibetan Buddhism – once primarily a male domain – over 3,000 nuns have attained elevated status. Director Victress Hitchcock follows the journey of a small group of Western women to remote mountain hermitages to meet these nuns. Buddhist teacher and spiritual leader Tsoknyi Rinpoche III leads the group, imparts his knowledge, and bridges the gap between cultures.
