Saltwater Buddha Screening Benefit for The Most Fearless

June 22, 2017
7:00 pm

The Glass Group of Engel & Völkers San Anselmo is excited to sponsor the screening of Saltwater Buddha. Featuring the story of Jaimal Yogis, who after leaving a note for his family, a lost teenager runs away to Hawaii with just enough cash for a surfboard. Through surfing misadventures, zen monasteries, and travels, he finds his way home. Tickets Here: http://saltwaterbuddha.brownpapertickets... Jaimal, will attend and join in a discussion about the film and his experience. A graduate of the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, Jaimal Yogis is the author of Saltwater Buddha, a coming-of-age memoir about how surfing and the sea helped him transition back to the world after a year in a Zen monastery (now also a documentary film); and The Fear Project, which looks at the neuroscience of fear and courage, using science, mindfulness, and sports to reveal ways in which humans can live more fully. His new book, All Our Waves Are Water (July, Harper Wave) uses the sea as a metaphor to explore the true self. Jaimal is an SF local and the writer and a producer of The Most Fearless (https://www.facebook.com/TheMostFearless...) a feature documentary in post-production. The funds raised for the screening will support the completion of The Most Fearless. A remarkable story about Nasima who has to escape a life of desperation and poverty. Her only chance at a better life is becoming the best surfer ever in Bangladesh. A conservative country where women don't even swim in public. Come out and see this amazing film and help us finish Fearless! We are so close - thank you! Sponsored by: The Glass Group Engel & Volkers 500 San Anselmo Ave. San Anselmo, CA 94960 There will be a cash bar serving wine and beers from the EV Lounge Collection.
