Pizza and Center Cleaning Social

February 10 / 1:00 PM - February 10 / 4:00 PM

Shambhala Day (Tibetan New Year) will be Monday, February 11.  Many of you know of the Winter Retreat that precedes this day; this year, we will also be observing the “neutral day” that falls between the end of the Retreat and Shambhala Day.  It is traditional to thoroughly clean our home shrines on this day, and to make special or "best" offerings for the New Year.  This is also a time to focus on our households, to prepare our space for a fresh start, and to make ready for hosting friends.


Please join us on Sunday, February 10, to help clean our sangha’s space to welcome the new year. We'll be deep-cleaning the entire Center and enjoying each other’s company over pizza and other food. The cleaning will start at 1:00 pm, and will continue through the afternoon until all the dust, grime, and food are gone!


We’ll need to know how much food to order, so please register to let us know that you’re coming. (If you have a special baked goody that you would like to share, feel free to bring it!)
