Both events are open to the public and are held at Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains, 246 S. Church St., Grass Valley.

At Sunday’s event, “Sacred Art of Tibet: Meaning and message,” Geshe Lobsang Tsultrim, an expert in Buddhist philosophy and monastic art, will bring samples of Tibetan art and talk about their symbols. Attendees may also bring their own Tibetan art to the event.

At the Oct. 25 meditation group, attendees will focus on Tara, the mother goddess of Tibetan Buddhism, known for her compassionate activity. She is also particularly associated with healing and long life.

These sessions use visualization techniques relying the feminine energy of White Tara to overcome physical, mental and emotional suffering. Admission is free or by donation.
