Festival of yoga and meditation

The Loving Kindness Festival is a free introduction to meditation, yoga, and related activities to celebrate and increase loving kindness in the South Central Pennsylvania area. It is the work of the Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple, which is guided by Bhante Somananda, a 28-year-old Sri Lankan monk who came to live in Carlisle two years ago and who has been teaching meditation and loving kindness at area yoga studios and churches. The event is co-sponsored by the Dickinson College Center for Service, Spirituality, and Social Justice and Dickinson College Department of Religion. The Loving Kindness Festival will include live music, children's activities, vendors, and workshops, talks and classes all day. RSVP for the festival is not required. However due to classroom size, certain classes and workshops require reservations. For more information about Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple PA, please visit the website.
