In an interactive workshop, the Tibetan monks from Tashi Lhunpo introduce details of the unique costumes worn in the dances of the Gutor Festival at Tibetan New Year, and invite you to learn a few of the steps. A demonstration and explanation of Taksel, the art of dialectical debate and teaching some of the intricate mudras (hand gestures) from Tantric prayer give an insight into Buddhist monastic life. Places are limited. After the workshop, bring a picnic and enjoy the Springhead Gardens ahead of the evening performance of 'The Power of Compassion'.
