Dharma Civilization Foundation (DCF) is proud to bring Shanti to the Bay Area for the first time.  The Bay Area premiere of Shanti on April 30th, was attended by an audience of over 1800 people, and was a unique and captivating performance! A second performance of Shanti is being scheduled in Oakland, at the Mormon Temple Interstake Center Auditorium.
