Week 4: Movie Night and Deer Park Retreat

Hello UBA friends,

Lots to announce this week!

I'll try to keep the email brief. First off, we continue our regular meetings this Tuesday, October 21st from 5:30-7 pm at the UCC (633 Gayley Avenue, across from the UCLA campus). Our meetings are facilitated by Reverend Kusala, who leads usin a dharma discussion followed by a chance to ask questions and ameditation. Previous dharma discussions are available in podcast format Rev. Kusala's website: www.dharmatalks.info.

Next, we invite you all to come to our first social event of the year with a movie night featuring the (loosely) Buddhist-themed movie Groundhog Day. The movie starts at 8 pm this Friday, October 24th,but we're starting at 7:30 with snacks! RSVP to ucla.uba.online@gmail.com so we can get a head count and for directions.

Finally, in a couple of weeks we will be traveling to Escondido, CA (San Diego area) for the annual Deer Park Monastery weekend retreat for college students, Nov. 7-9th. We plan to leave by 1 pm Friday and return by 4 or 5 pm Sunday, depending on traffic. The retreat is agreat chance to experience a taste of life in a Buddhist monastery and we generally participate in activities such as meditation, dharma discussions, hiking, and enjoying delicious vegetarian meals. More info can be found at http://www.deerparkmonastery.org/events/retreats/college-retreat.ics. If interested, please RSVP as soon as you can so that we can get ahead count - we will try to provide rides but we are extremely limited on car space, so let us know if you would like to go and are able to drive. It will be very much appreciated!!

That seems to be it - hope to see you on Tuesday and please email us at ucla.uba.online@gmail.com if you have any questions. Thanks and happy 4th week!
