Suggested Donation: $15.
The Biz is full of ups and downs, challenges and joys of all kinds, disappointments, elation, hope and fear. How can the path of meditation and the view of Basic Goodness help those on this career path? Join screen writer Stanley Weiser, longtime student of Shambhala Buddhism, and writer of the films "Wall Street" and "W", and host David Fraioli, for a discussion, Q and A, and reception.
Stanley Weiser is an American screenwriter. He was born in New York City and is a graduate of the NYU Film School. His screen credits include Wall Street and W., both directed by Oliver Stone. He also wrote the 20th Century Fox animal rights film, Project X, and two civil rights dramas for television, Murder In Mississipi and Freedom Song. He is credited for creating the characters of the sequel to Wall Street, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. In addition, he served as script consultant on Oliver Stone's Nixon and Any Given Sunday.
David Fraioli is an actor and student of Shambhala Buddhism.

The Shambhala Center of Los Angeles remains open because of the ongoing generosity of our community. One of the cornerstones of our policy is that no one be turned away for lack of funds. If you can’t afford a program, please call our office (323-255-5472) to register based on what you can afford. At the same time, the Center relies on program revenue to cover costs. For those who are able to pay more than the program price, your generosity in paying the Patron Price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price, and provides additional support to the Shambhala Center of Los Angeles. Thank you for your kindness!

If you cancel more than 7 days prior to your class (and have already paid), you will receive a full refund less a processing fee of $15. If you cancel between 1 to 7 days prior to arrival, we will credit your payment towards another program at Shambhala Los Angeles to be used within 1 year. No refunds or credits are issued for cancellations received fewer than 24 hours prior to arrival.
