Announcement about the "Hannah" film screening in Tijuana, Mexico

We will have special guest Marta György Kessler a student of Lama Ole Nydahl in Tijuana, Baja California Mexico after the Thanksgiving course on Monday November 26th.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION about the Border crossing into the US at Tijuana, Mexico.
Currently there is a lot of extra activity at the Border crossing in Tijuana. There is a US Military presence in addition to the Border & Immigration control at the entry. The lanes into the US have been reduced thus making the wait to back into the US is much longer than usual. The infamous CARAVAN that President Trump says is an invasion of the US is already arriving at the border in Tijuana. It is in the news daily. Therefore... we suggest that you proceed with caution and travel into Mexico at your own risk.
Make a clear plan and know exactly where you are going and how you will get there and back. Better to go with a group and not alone. Each person is responsible for their own safety and possessions while traveling and at course.

Please see the US Dept of State's Mexico page and Mexico Travel Advisory for details.
