The Laramie Project to be shown at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Evansville

Matthew Shepard, a gay student of the University of Wyoming, was brutally attacked, tied to a fence, and left to die on October 7, 1998. He died from his injuries five days later. After the murder, members of the Tectonic Theater Project in New York City traveled to Laramie, Wyoming, to interview residents about how the attack had affected the town. These transcripts were transformed into The Laramie Project, the stories of real people who lived at the epicenter of one of the nation’s most heinous anti-gay hate crimes.

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Evansville, 2910 Morgan Avenue, is proud to host The Laramie Project on Friday, December 1. Doors open at 7 PM. Performance begins 7:30 PM. Advance tickets can be purchased http://www.uuevansville.org or by check for $15 to UUCE at the address above.

Residential Retreat with Annie Nugent at Sarto Retreat Center, April 6-8, 2018

The Mindful Heart Buddha Sangha is hosting a retreat with Annie Nugent on Friday April 6 through Sunday April 8, 2018

Cultivating Wisdom and Compassion

A wellspring of joy arises when we realize the scope of the Buddha’s teachings and its impact on our relationships and activities. This silent retreat, open to all, is an invitation to explore the core teaching of mindfulness and how it supports the cultivation of wisdom and compassion. With practice, we can interact with our world with an ease of mind, especially amidst the fullness and vibrancy of everyday life.

Annie Nugent has practiced in the Theravada and Tibetan traditions since 1979 under the guidance of a range of teachers including Sayadaw U Pandita, Tulku Akong Rinpoche, and various western teachers. She was the resident teacher at the Insight Meditation Society from 1999-2003 and has since been teaching elsewhere in America, including the annual IMS 3 month retreat and The Forest Refuge. Her teaching style aims to reveal how our all aspects of our lives are opportunities to develop a clear and direct understanding of the Truth.


Registration begins at 6:30 p.m. on Friday April 6 and the retreat starts at 7:30 p.m. Retreat ends after the noon meal on Sunday April 8. This retreat will be a typical Vipassana style retreat with much of the time devoted to sitting and walking meditation. Dhamma talks will be given daily. There will be time to meet with the teacher, Annie Nugent, in small groups. There will also be an opportunity for mindful yoga each morning. Noble silence will be observed throughout the retreat, and the day will begin with a wake-up bell at 5:15 a.m.

Price for the retreat is $160. This includes a private room with bathroom and shower, and all meals on Saturday and Sunday.
