Please forward widely

Meditation teacher Noah Levine will be visiting Vancouver this week and

doing a number of talks and retreats. Noah, author of /Dharma Punx/ and

/Against the Stream/, is a Buddhist teacher, author and counselor. He
trained to teach by Jack Kornfield of Spirit Rock Meditation Center in
California. Noah teaches meditation classes, workshops and retreats
throughout North America, as well as leading groups in juvenile halls
and prisons. Noah holds a masters degree in counseling psychology from
CIIS. He has studied with many prominent teachers in both the
and Mahayanan Buddhist traditions. He's a teacher of mine and a friend
I can vouch for him being a hilarious and wise teacher.

Noah's story is much like many of ours. His search for meaning led him
first to punk rock, drugs, drinking, and dissatisfaction. But the
didn't end there. Having clearly seen the uselessness of drugs and
violence, Noah looked for positive ways to channel his rebellion
what he saw as the lies of society. Fueled by his anger and so much
injustice and suffering, Levine now uses that energy and the practice
Buddhism to awaken natural wisdom and compassion. Noah has sparked a
movement called Dharma Punx, represented by a network of meditation
groups throughout North America.
