Your generous contributions will help provide class and retreat scholarships for BIPOC practitioners, support visiting BIPOC teachers through dana (donations), and cover general costs incurred by the sangha.

Date & Time: July 19th, 2024 | Doors open 6pm, Screening begins 6:30pm

Location: Sacramento Dharma Center, 3111 Wissemann Dr, Sacramento, CA 95826

Suggested Donation: $10-$15 (However no one will be turned away for lack of funds)

About the Film: “The Dhamma Brothers” tells the remarkable story of a group of inmates at a maximum-security prison in Alabama who undergo a transformative journey through the practice of Vipassana meditation. The film offers a profound look at the power of meditation and its ability to bring change in the most unexpected places.

Event Highlights:

  • Inclusive Community Event: Welcoming BIPOC and allied practitioners to explore diverse perspectives within the dharma.
  • Refreshments: Enjoy a selection of snacks and drinks.
  • Support Local Businesses: Take the opportunity to support a few small, local BIPOC businesses that will be present at the event.

This movie night is more than just a film screening; it’s a chance to come together as a community, learn, and support a meaningful cause. Whether you’re a long-time practitioner or new to meditation, this event is open to all. We look forward to seeing you there!
