10/29 HIUHBWA Membership Meeting and Education Seminar at Puna Hongwanji.

HIUHBWA Membership Meeting and Education Seminar

The Hawaii Island United Hongwanji BWA (HIUHBWA) will hold its General Membership Meeting and Education Seminar on Saturday, October 29, 2002, at Puna Hongwanji Social Hall. This will be an in-person event.

The Education Seminar, held in conjunction with the Membership meeting, will feature the film:

Celebrating the Secret, Wit and Wisdom of Age

The film will be followed that day by a live Dharma talk by Hilo Betsuin’s Rimban Kazunori Takahashi relating the film’s themes and Jodo Shinshu themes.

Sky Bergman, producer and director of this documentary states:

Four years and forty interviews later, I listened; capturing the images, ideas, and ideals of those who are proving that aging is something to cherish. Through the film, I hope to inspire people of every age to think about what they can do in their own lives to achieve the longevity of both health and spirit that these people have achieved, and to realize that growing older can be a journey to be celebrated.

If you are interested in attending the general meeting and seminar in person, please sign up at the temple office. The cost for the event is $15.00.
