Children's Day


December 22 / 3:00 PM - December 22 / 9:00 PM

Children's Day - our Shambhala solstice celebration!


We will start by decorating the shrine with greenery and lights and offerings from the children. We will also have arts and crafts (cookie decorating, crown making) before the King and Queen lead the procession into the shrine room, around 4:00. There, the children will offer a performance and gifts to donate to a local charity. The King and Queen will offer a story and give gifts to the children. We will wrap up the evening with a festive Solstice Celebration from 5 - 8 pm.
