Save the date: We will welcome Lama Losang to the Piedmont KTC for the first time for a weekend teaching Sept. 26-28 on "The Art of Living". This will be an interactive teaching weekend, involving the practices of sitting and walking meditation, accupressure, and Chi Kung, amongst others, to learn Asian healing techniques.   [details]
