Student Life is bringing "Yo Pal Hal" to Clark on Tuesday, November 6 from 11:30am to 12:30pm in Gaiser Student Center.

Hal Elrod has been known as ’Yo Pal Hal“ since hosting his first radio show at age 15. He became a national record-breaking sales rep for a 200 million dollar marketing company at 19, but his real triumph came at age 20 when he was hit head on by a drunk driver and found dead at the scene—

Defying the logic of doctors and the temptations to be a victim, He bounced back to become a bestselling author, Youth and College Motivational Speaker, international Success Coach, hall of fame business achiever, ultra-marathon runner (52 consecutive miles!), and most importantly – proud husband and father.
Hal has appeared on dozens of TV and radio shows across the country, and his story was featured in the all-time bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul book series.

Refreshments will start at 11:00am.

A group of six Tibetan Buddhist monks, newly arrived from South India, are on a three-month tour of the west coast to construct Sand Mandalas, also known as Sand Paintings. Their tour is called ‘ Sacred Tibetan Art – The Sand Mandala: Creating a Picture of Universal Compassion. They are coming to Clark College November 26-29.

This project can be appreciated simply as a piece of "time-based art." But, according to Tibetan Buddhist belief, the creation of a Sand Mandala is meant to create a profound experience of Compassion. The positive effects of a Sand Mandala are believed to radiate out over an entire region, blessing the environment and the beings therein, as an effort for world peace. Once created, the Sand Mandala is destroyed in the Closing Ceremony, as a lesson in the impermanence of all life. The Opening & Closing Ceremonies are very popular, with traditional Tibetan Buddhist chanting and music.

From 12 - 1:00p.m. on Thursday, November 29, don't miss a very special presentation - Sacred Tibetan Art: World Peace Starts With A Meaningful Life, held in the Penguin Student Lounge (PUB 161). In this presentation, the Venerable Geshe Tenphel from the Drepung Loseling Phukhang Monastery will describe the history and meaning of the Sand Mandala within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The six monks creating the Mandala are on their first visit to the western world, and Geshela will share what they hope to accomplish by creating this ancient and unique piece of artwork. He will speak about how a healthy attitude about everyday living can lead to a contented and happy life. As more people experience love and compassion, we will create peaceful communities, and ultimately a peaceful world. There will be time for Q & A. This event is part of the week-long creation of the Sand Mandala at the Cannell Library on Clark College campus.

Your ASCC welcomes Steve Ferreira to Clark on Wednesday November 28th from 11:30am to 12:30pm in Gaiser Student Center. Come listen to Steve inlighten us out his positivity for life while having cerebral palsy.

Hello. My name is Steve Ferreira and I was born with cerebral palsy. When I was 15 years old, I decided that I wanted to try my best to make a difference. I felt I could not only positively affect the lives of disabled people, but also those of everyone else around me. To this day I have spoken over 150 times at more than 20 different regional high schools.

Even now, while attending college, I remain involved in events that aim to raise disability awareness in my community. Not only am I an active member of the Rotaract Club (a club which aims to educate the public about the obstacles disabled persons face in their day-to-day lives), but I have started speaking at churches as well. Regardless of the amount time these various speaking appearances take, I will continue pushing myself and spreading my message.

Refreshments start at 11:00am.
