Hi Folks:

We're looking forward to another great Change Your Mind Day!

Here are a few last-minute reminders about service possibilities:

If you'd like to volunteer to help out, please stop by the white BPF canopy near the entrance to the Shelter #1 area.

Throughout the day, there will be opportunities to serve at the LITERATURE TABLE and TEA AREA.

At lunch time, a couple of folks could help coordinate the food arrangements.

Additions to the altar are most welcome -- we'll have a couple of Buddhas, incense and glass vases, but we could use FLOWERS, and other appropriate additions.

And all sorts of lunch-time entertainment are welcome -- music, poetry, appeals, ...

And of course, everyone is welcome to contribute food, and to join in the discussions.

Here's the Schedule:
10:00-10:15 -- Opening ceremony: Pali chanting and 108 bells.
10:15-11:45 -- Discussion 1: Taking it off the cushion: Applying Buddhist Practice in Everyday Life.
11:45-1:15 -- Pot-luck vegetarian lunch; misc entertainments.
1:15-2:45 -- Discussion 2: Buddhism as Philosophy vs Buddhism as Religion.
2:45-3:00 -- Closing ceremony: Heart Sutra and 108 bells.

Call 813-850-8168 (Rick's cell phone on site) if you have questions or need to contact the coordinators.

all best wishes,

Rick Ferriss and Tom Lacey, event coordinators
