Harvest of Peace: A Celebration of Riches


October 6 / 9:45 AM - October 6 / 2:00 PM

Harvest of Peace is an annual worldwide Shambhala community celebration held at the time of the autumn equinox. Everyone is welcome. (This event was originally scheduled for 21 September, the actual equinox, but we'll be celebrataing it closer to Thnaksgiving this year.)


Related to the Sakyong Wangmo ("Lady Earth Protector") principle, this day is a time to gather and enjoy each others' company, hear addresses by global Shambhala leaders, and celebrate the riches of our lineage and local culture.


Schedule for the celebration:


9:45 arrive

10:00 Shambhala Sadhana — The entire community is invited to practise the Shambhala Sadhana, written by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.  Please be on time because it's not possible to entire the shrine room once the Sadhana has begun

10:00  Concurrent children's program  — arts and crafts

11:45   Sakyong's address to the Shambhala community
