Francis Ford Coppola - when, where & how to see him

I've read that Francis Ford Coppola will be here for the Orchid Festival. I'm having some difficulty figuring out when, where and how to get in to see him.

Any help with figuring this out would be greatly appreciated.

Free lecture: How to Find Inner Peace through Meditation

The keys to inner peace often seem hard to find. But inner peace need not be complicated or mysterious. Many have found that the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, who brought the wisdom tradition of yoga to North America in 1920, offer simple techniques that open the door to peace, joy, and success.

Cuenca's Self-Realization Fellowship center is sponsoring a special free lecture entitled “How to Find Inner Peace through Meditation.” This lecture will be given by Swami Devananda from Self-Realization Fellowship in California, and will include an introduction to Kriya Yoga meditation techniques that will be taught the following days. All lectures will be in English.

The public lecture will be at 7 PM at Teatro Pumapungo, Calle Larga at Huayana Capac. No reservation is required for the free lecture, but
