Shambhala Center Cleaning for Year of the Wood Horse
March 1 / 9:00 AM - March 1 / 4:00 PM
Neutral Day: Uncovering Sacred Space
On Saturday, March 1, 2014, we will gather together as a community for the traditional activity of Neutral Day cleaning! SMCD will be open from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM to accommodate people's schedules. You can sign up for a pre-designated time slot, or individualize your sign up!
Please sign up for a cleaning shift here.
Neutral Day is the day before the Tibetan New Year and Shambhala Day. It falls in between Dön season, which is the end of the previous year when it is said that karma and negativity ripens and extra care and attention is vital, and the fresh start of the New Year. This year we will be entering into the Year of the Wood Horse and celebrating Shambhala Day on Sunday, March 2.
Cleaning before the New Year is a way of attracting positive energy into the environment, or as we might say in Shambhala, “drala.” It allows us to put time and energy into uplifting our space to start the year with a sense of freshness, new beginning, openness and possibility.
Doing so as a group adds some extra fun and zeal to the whole experience. Please join us!
