Buddhism and Mindfulness

In conjunction with Balboa Park's 150th construction anniversary, Sake Talks will be featuring guest lecturers speaking on the topics related to the four pillars of Balboa Park: horticulture, recreation, arts & culture, and education. Dr. Reverend Kenji Akahoshi from the Buddhist Temple of San Diego will be sharing his knowledge on Buddhism and mindfulness for this month's Sake Talks.

"If life is a nightmare, wake up to a dream.  Learn some simple daily habits that can lift an ordinary life to one that is in harmony with reality."

- Rev. Dr. Kenji Akahoshi,
Buddhist Temple of San Diego
