Midsummers Day: A Celebration of Summer


June 21 / 12:00 PM - June 21 / 5:00 PM

Everyone is warmly invited to our annual Midsummers Day celebration.


Over the years our community has adopted a tradition of celebrating the changes of the seasons. These are called "nyida" days from the Tibetan words nyima (sun) and dawa (moon), and they occur on or near the days of the equinoxes and solstices. Nyida days are family-oriented celebrations and occasions for local Shambhala communities to gather socially.


Midsummer Day recognizes the joy and brilliance of the summer solstice.  We celebrate with games, feasting and community.  We will begin with a lhasung around 12:30, followed by the things of summer.
