Go Against the Stream this New Year's Eve

Against the Stream; Wisdom Quarterly

On Saturday, Dec. 31, 2011, Against the Stream Buddhism Meditation Society will host two (east and west) "intention setting" ceremonial meditations closing out 2011 and welcoming the last year of life on Earth as we know it, 2012. Author and founder Noah Levine and other teachers will be in attendance at both Dharma Punx celebrations.

Join in the annual event. Each New Year's Eve a large group gathers to set intentions for the coming year and to re-commit to our spiritual practices. There will be an opportunity to go to the three Buddhist guides (Tri-Sarana), often mistakenly called "refuges," and to undertake Buddhism's Five Precepts anew.

This year is special because the ceremony will be offered at both Los Angeles centers. ALL are welcome regardless of spiritual or religious beliefs. Suggested donation of $20 is requested but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
