Shambhala Day Online Gathering

February 12th

Date details +
    Room: ZOOM - This is an online event

    Shambhala Day is our community's observation of Tibetan New Year (Losar), and it is a time to come together in appreciation of our sangha. As the Phoenix Center is currently closed to the public, this year's celebration will be held online on the day of the New Year, Friday, February 12. See below for the Zoom meeting information.

    Join us for an event that will include a brief meditation session, a Heart Sharing circle, and viewing a portion of the official Shambhala Day broadcast. The theme of the broadcast is Celebrating Shambhala Culture and will have a particular focus on Shambhala contemplative arts and culture. Presenters will include Acharya Arawana Hayashi, Acharya Dan Hessey, and arts and culture features from Centres and Groups around the world. Programming elements will include a lhasang, Kyudo shot, Ikebana demonstration, tea ceremony demonstration, calligraphy exhibition, and Miksang presentation. This will truly be a celebration of our rich Shambhala culture. 

    Our Kasung will also hold a transition ceremony. Thanks to Lynn Vineyard, our outgoing Rusung, for protecting our space in these difficult times, and welcome to our new Rusung, Jim Duetsch.

    Shambhala Day is also traditionally a fundraiser for Shambhala Global Services, which supports Shambhala Centers worldwide. (See this document for an overview of SGS activities.) If you feel inspired to make a donation to Shambhala, you may do so at this page.
