San Jose Phowa Course venue update and daily schedule

Please note that the venue for Ayang Rinpoche's upcoming Phowa Course in San Jose has been changed.  The course will begin the evening of September 9 with a public talk, "Short Introduction to Phowa (Transference of Consciousness at the moment of death)".  This talk will be held at the San Jose Scottish Rite Center, 2455 Masonic Drive, San Jose, CA 95125. The remainder of the Phowa Course (September 10-18) will be held next door at the San Jose Masonic Center, 2500 Masonic Drive, San Jose, CA 95125, beginning with the Amitabha Empowerment at 6 PM September 10.
