Our world and local community is in need of large-heartedness, expansive compassion, and everyday kindness. We might even call that “fierce compassion”, a compelling desire to build common humanity where we alleviate the suffering of others and build up happiness as a natural human desire.
DGCEC provides an antidote to difficult world news, affirming fierce compassion in the here and now. YOU are invited to be bravely compassionate!
Join us for DGCEC’s first annual Snow Lion Fest for a fun evening that includes trying traditional Tibetan arts and games, enjoying a delicious meal, a silent auction and more at the beautiful, newly opened Waterfront Botanical Gardens. Tickets for this fundraiser: $65, HERE or 502-614-5616.
