The Shambhala Ball

February 16 / 7:00 PM - February 16 / 10:30 PM

Please join the Northern California Shambhala regional leadership for this year’s Shambhala Ball at Sharchen Dzong. This will be an uplifted affair for the whole region including a ceremony for our regional Shastris and Acharyas, live music, dancing and good food.  

Come dressed in your most uplifted attire and be prepared for an amazing night! The Shambhala Ball is a tradition started by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche as a way to celebrate the New Year together with style, dignity, and cheer. The evening will open with a ceremony to appreciate our regional senior teachers, the Shastris and Acharyas. We will then be serenaded by a string quartet, have waltz lessons, and get to practice what we have learned with more dancing.

     7:00 Appreciation of our Regional Shastris and Acharyas
     8:00 Live music and hors d’oevres
     8:45 Waltz lesson for beginners and experienced dancers
     9:15 Waltzing
