READING TIPS - Stage Presence! If you have never done something like this, it is not like reading to your cat in the easy chair. Your Voice, Body Language, Hand Gestures and Looking at The Audience all help to convey what you want The Listeners to hear & understand. Practicing in front of a mirror or a small group of friends does help. Reading your bits out loud (in the shower, in the car at a stop light, whilst making love… ooo maybe not, but you get the gist) will do wonders for your performance.
*This is Rain or Shine! The Refuge is HUGE and we have plenty of room.
*Lots of Parking. Carpool to save gas.
*There will be Food Vendors with Yum Yums (Will post these details soon!)
Check back every day or so and this will have been updated.
Peace and Much Love!
GETTING TO THE REFUGE:
*ADDRESS: The Refuge in Dakeng DongShan Paradise 東山樂園! 台中市北屯區東山路二段151之2號 東山樂園 Taichung Taiwan
This is VERY easy!
From Taichung: Zhong Gang Road… get on to Wenxin (or Wenshin) Road and go NORTH.
you stay on this road the WHOLE WAY.
Wen Xin (OR WENSHIN) Road turns into DONGSHAN Road or Route 129!
Cross over BEITUN (sometimes spelled PEITUN). Though this Road changeS its name from Wenxin to Dongshan - IT IS THE SAME ROAD!
Stay on DONGSHAN until you get to the DAKENG TRAFFIC CIRCLE (If there wasn’t a Temple in the middle, go straight ahead!)
Go around the Traffic Circle and continue NORTH on 129 (Dongshan Road) (you’re almost there 5 more minutes!)
DongShan Paradise is on THE RIGHT SIDE ON DONG SHAN ROAD.
It looks a bit like a castle. We are the serfs in the back of the castle hidden snug away!
Look for a Big Yellow Home-made REFUGE Sign then LOOK FOR Yellow SIGNS AND FOLLOW THEM… to the Parking lot.
