His Holiness the Dalai Lama...that's right I'm not making this up. He is speaking at an engaging youth symposium in Calgary at the end of September and so I got tickets. They put out a call for presenters on engaging youth for a better world and I submitted my proposal about a project to build schools in Kenya that I have started in my school. They accepted it, and the Dalai Lama himself will be coming to my presentation as it interested him. HOLY SHIT!!! (Literally)

I am humbled, thrilled, excited, and nervous. Pretty big for me, as a Buddhist, to have this. Here is the web site:

Here is the group my school partnered with to build a school in Kenya:

The events schedule is not up to date yet, but I can't wait to go.

Namaste all!

The other presenters are pretty high caliber as well, FW de Clerk, Stephen Covey, etc.

I hope this went well, because I am going to kick your ass in hockey.

It went very well and I actually got to meet him. He shook my hand, blessed my katak (scarves) and touched my face....It was an amazing experience.

My presentation went well, he did not come to it, but that is ok. There is a newspaper article about the trip here:

Cheers.
