Program Details

"Off the Cushion"

September 8 / 9:00 AM - September 8 / 5:00 PM

In the coming week you will find a full year of exciting and profound programs that will be offered here at your ABQ Shambhala Center. I will let you know when everything is confirmed and on the web site. Put your seatbelts on for a wide variety of programming. Surely, there will be something for everyone!


In the meantime, the outdoor space at the Center needs some major tending to, due to the rain and a long stretch of my inability to walk. (I am healing up nicely.... however it's still slow going). We have a big weekend coming with many out of town participants and a very highly respected teacher in mid September. It is my wish to get the yard shining in all its glory between now and then.... and we need our help!


On Sunday, September 8th we will take our mindfulness off the cushion and place our minds on beautifying our space. The gardening project will take the place of our public meditation practice that day. We will begin at 9am, serve you lunch at 1230 and invite you to come and stay for as much time as you can offer. Feel free to bring family and friends. (the more the merrier!!) If you will be able to help, let me know so we can set up appropriate crews to accomplish big things together! it will be a very satisfying day. Be sure to wear good shoes, gloves and bring tools if you have them. If you want to do lighter work, there are some things that can be done indoors as well. If you can't come that day but want to volunteer some time on another day, please contact me and we'll set something up.


I continue to feel grateful for your time and generosity and I'm so pleased that you are part of our community.
