Film Night- Walk With Me

Saturday 14th September 6pm, for 6:30pm start.

With unprecedented access, ‘Walk With Me’ takes us deep inside the world-famous monastery of Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, and captures the life of a monastic community who have given up all their possessions for one common purpose – to practice the art of mindfulness. Filmed over three years, this visceral film is a meditation on a community determined to develop a deep sense of presence, not just for themselves but for all those they love. As the seasons come and go, the monastics’ inner journey is amplified by insights from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals, narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.

A chance to meet new people and old friends and watch a film/documentary together along with popcorn and snacks. 

The film screening is free – all welcome. Donation for the food and drink is £5. Please book in advance. To book click the green ‘Book an Event’  button above.

Film & Curry Night – Mystic Tibet

To mark our move to 12 York Place, Leeds LS1 2DS we will be screening ‘Mystic Tibet‘ in the quiet of the candlelit gompa at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds on Saturday 29 September.

About the documentary:

“Follow fifty pilgrims as they travel to the roof of the world for the spiritual adventure of a lifetime! In 2002, ordinary people from around the globe were drawn to Tibet, the mystical land of enlightenment. Guided by renowned Tibetan master Lama Zopa Rinpoche, this was no common tourist trek, but a rare and powerful experience in which the invisible world of great yogis and saints was magically revealed. This intense journey takes the viewer directly into the culture of Tibet and its arresting, spiritually rich landscape in a way that is not often seen. It explores the deep inner meaning of pilgrimage, which purifies the mind and creates the good heart. These pilgrims discovered more than temples and holy mountains. They touched the extraordinary potential of their minds, their enlightened nature.”
