Midsummer's Day

June 22 / 11:00 AM - June 22 / 4:00 PM

Midsummer Day is an opportunity for families and friends in Shambhala to enjoy summer fun together. Regular Sunday sitting will be cancelled so that the community can gather for this seasonal celebration.

We’ll meet at the D.A.R. State Forest Pavilion at 11 and start with a Lhasang, a traditional offering of juniper smoke.

Then we’ll share a potluck lunch, hike, swim, boat and enjoy each other’s company. Please bring:

  • Food for the potluck. Email to find out what you can contribute.

  • Folding chairs and blankets to sit on. There are picnic tables for lunch.

  • Frisbees

  • Swim suits and towels

  • Canoes, kayaks, and row boats. No motorized boats are allowed.
