If you live in Southern California and have an interest in receiving teachings from HHDL, this post will be of interest to you. I think there's already another thread announcing the official dates, place, and content of the upcoming teachings.
I'm attending the two-day event and taking my 14 year-old niece. Like many teenagers, she's a bit unpredictable and not the most reliable person. So I think there's a chance I'll wind up going alone and in possession of an extra ticket. So be on alert in the next few weeks; there may be a free ticket available for this sold-out event.
I'm hoping my niece will go; I think it would be really good for her. But it's a little hard to be sure with her. She's been having a tough couple of months and it doesn't seem to be getting better at the moment.
