    Room: Meditation Hall

    SAVE THE DATE: Shambhala Day is on Friday January 16th

    We will have an evening celebration together! In Shambhala we celebrate the New Year - also know as Losar in the Tibetan tradition - based on the Tibetan lunar calendar. Meditation practitioners are encouraged to view the start of the new year as an opportunity for a fresh start and a letting go of habitual tendencies and patterns of the past. In Shambhala, this is the biggest occasion of the year. 

    This event will be a potluck celebratory banquet. The evening will include His Majesty Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche's Annual Address. We will practice together as well as enjoy eachothers company -- you are encouraged to bring an offering such as a poem, song or other personal inspiration to share. Within our celebrating, we will have our annual Shambhala Day Fundraiser that supports our Center as part of Shambhala International.
