Join us on New Year’s Eve for our traditional Celebration and Potluck Dinner


Doors open at 5:30
Sadhana begins around 6:00


The Sadhana of Mahamudra contains a vivid description of the obstacles presented by physical, psychological, and spiritual materialism in the modern age and prescribes unwavering devotion to wakefulness as the antidote to the materialistic outlook.


It is an excellent practice for bringing the intention of awake and compassionate mindfulness into the New Year. All are welcome and invited to participate. No prior experience with this practice is necessary.


The Sadhana is practiced on special occasions as well as when there is a full or new moon. A powerful and inspiring practice, it was written in 1968 by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche at Taktsang in Bhutan, in a cave where the great Tibetan Saint Padmasambhava meditated.


Potluck and Festivities to follow.  Bring food, drink, dance music, artistic offerings, etc. The party will last as long as there are partiers who want to party!
