Numata Lectures updated times

Buddhism around the World Education Events Toronto

Please find below this year’s updated Numata Program. There had been some concerns about the late afternoon times.

Accordingly the only changes (apart from a few typos) concern the times (now 3-5 pm) of the UTSG events (except the first lecture by Shaman Hatley, which remains unchanged) and the time (now 2-4 pm) and room of the UTM event.

Please update your personal calendars accordingly. The poster will go out and up later this week.

Looking forward to seeing you all there,
warmly,
Christoph
