EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education and The Healing Place of Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire will sponsor a bus trip to "Peace Through Inner Peace: A Public Address Featuring His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama" May 8 at Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis, Minn.

The bus will depart from UW-Eau Claire's Water Street parking lot at 10:45 a.m. and the Kmart parking lot in Menomonie at 11:15 a.m. and will return at 5:15 p.m. to Menomonie and 5:45 p.m. to Eau Claire. Those interested in learning how to promote health and well-being for themselves and others are invited to attend.

The Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. He frequently states that his life is guided by three major commitments: the promotion of basic human values or secular ethics in the interest of human happiness; the fostering of inter-religious harmony; and the welfare of the Tibetan people, focusing on the survival of their identity, culture and religion.

The Rev. Dr. Bob Salt will provide background information on his holiness the Dalai Lama and an overview of his teachings on the bus ride to Minneapolis. He is an ordained interfaith minister who leads worship at the Menomonie Interfaith Fellowship and serves as department chair of the human development and family studies department at UW-Stout. Dr. Salt also teaches meditation workshops at The Healing Place each spring.

The $99 fee includes main floor tickets to see the Dalai Lama and transportation to and from Minneapolis. Lunch is not included. Enrollment is limited, so early registration is recommended.
