Listening Circles regarding future CYMD/ Festivals

Two listening circles are scheduled to discuss the future of Change Your Mind Day in Portland. Background on this can be found here. Organizers and Portland BPF hope that there will be as much participation from Portland communities as possible.

Place: Nichiren Buddhist Temple, SE 20th and Yamhill
Days: Monday, September 26 and Friday, September 30
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We will take detailed minutes and put a report here. We have scheduled two times so if your sangha can't send a representative to one evening, perhaps you can the other.
