    Room: Online Program (See description for details)

    Sunday, September 20, 2020 10am - 4pm

    You are warmly invited to join together for a Harvest of Peace Gathering.

    Our community is going through a challenging time. In the midst of feeling all of the uncertainties we are all grappling with, we could gather to offer each other support and to mark the changing of the seasons and the beauty of the natural world.

    Harvest of Peace is one of four annual Nyida Day celebrations in Shambhala culture. Each of these holidays mark the turning of the seasons, hence the name Nyida Day (Nyi = sun and Da = moon).

    It is an opportunity for our community to gather both online and in person, hear teachings, and celebrate the richness of our local environment. The theme of appreciation includes all of these things, and especially the goodness of our bond as a community at this time.


    Our community has never needed this support and stability more. Please register to receive final details, including zoom link.
