Garchen Rinpoche on 'Living a Meaningful Life'

Tibetan Buddhist teacher Garchen Rinpoche will share the secrets of "living a meaningful life." Imprisoned for 20 years and sent to a forced labor camp during China’s Cultural Revolution, Rinpoche will detail his turmoil and triumphs—and how they informed his teachings. Rinpoche has been featured in films such as Yogis of Tibet and For The Benefit of All Beings.

All benefits go to Seattle nonprofit Drikung Seattle, and American Sign Language interpretation will be provided.

Garchen Rinpoche Talks 'Living a Meaningful Life', Fri, July 3, 7pm, Town Hall Seattle, 1119 Eighth Ave, $20

Back ‘Crave,’ Aneesh Sheth’s Original TV Series 

With actresses like Laverne Cox and award-winning shows like Transparent making waves, transgender representation is on the rise. But Aneesh Sheth, who broke through as the first South Asian trans actress on TV in Outsourced, still believes her experience is underrepresented.

That’s why she’s producing her own Seattle-based original series, Crave, which, with a Seattle cast and crew, focuses on the lives of three people: Bobbi, a gay man stuck in an abusive relationship and a job he hates; Karen, a military housewife who finds her marriage crumbling after her husband’s return from a year away in Afghanistan; and Maggie, a trans actress trying to make her mark in show business. 

Sheth needs help to produce a full season—check out the pilot episode and help her raise $35,000 for a full season before July 6.
