Event description
Please join us for this special event with two beloved teachers.

About this Event

Anushka Fernandopulle and Pascal Auclair will offer a guided meditation and a dharma talk, as well as reflections from their many years of practicing and teaching together. There will be time for Q&A from the community.

Registration fees from this event will go to BCIMS's new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) fund. The intention of this fund is to make the dharma more accessible to those who have traditionally been underserved in the Insight tradition: Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC), the young, and the LGBTQIA+ community.

In addition to the registration fee for this event, we hope that you will make a tax-deductible contribution to our new DEI fund, in the same spirit of great generosity with which Pascal and Anushka are offering their teachings. Reflecting on the value that BCIMS holds for you, please offer your utmost financial support.

If you cannot attend the live event, please consider making a donation to the DEI fund to ensure BCIMS can make the Dharma accessible to all.
