Sit-A-Thon for Building Mindful Space

April 26 / 9:00 AM - April 27 / 12:00 PM

Join us and participate in the upcoming first annual Sit-A-Thon on April 26 and April 27, 2014 at the Philadelphia Shambhala Center.  During this day-and-a-half of sitting together, we will raise money to strengthen our capacity to better serve you. These funds will be used towards finding new space, which will help us grow the various programs we offer: children's and family programs, various urban meditation retreats and classes, contemplative arts programs, community support groups, and the many other groups that have come to count on our center.


Each participant in the Sit-A-Thon will create a schedule that they can commit to.  We will each pace ourselves, taking breaks when needed. Snacks and beverages will be provided. There will be an area for quiet contemplation at the center, and if you can’t be here for the whole event, commit to what part of it you can and make sure that those sponsoring you understand that commitment. 

There will be an event page launch on February 1, which will allow participants and sponsors to register online. Reminder emails will be sent to all those who express interest in participating."
