    Shambhala has a tradition of marking the turn of the seasons with global community celebrations on or near the equinoxes and solstices.

    Harvest of Peace is a celebration held at the time of the autumn equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. Related to the Sakyong Wangmo (“Lady Earth Protector”) principle, this day is an opportunity to enjoy each other’s company, hear teachings by The Sakyong Wangmo, and celebrate the riches of our culture and heritage.

    Everyone is invited. Please Register to RSVP. 
    We want to know that you are coming!

    …when we say, “Harvest of Peace,” here, it is peace within ourselves - we feel like we belong, we feel like we actually want to participate in the community. That sense of peace in us is what is going to make a big difference. Not meditative stabilization and peace, we’re not particularly talking about that. But a sense of harmony. If we feel a sense of harmony with ourselves and the community, it’s going to naturally express itself. I feel that that is going to be one of the important binding factors.
