Shambhala Day 2019: Year of the Earth Pig

About This Event

SHAMBHALA DAY marks the beginning of the New Year, and represents one of the most important traditions of Shambhala Buddhism. Based on the traditional Tibetan New Year’s celebration of Losar, the day is calculated according to the Tibetan lunar calendar, and changes every year to coincide with the annual lunar cycles.

It is a time for us to express the wealth and richness of our spiritual and cultural heritage through feasting, conviviality, and elegance. Shambhala is an ancient tradition that is rooted in the longing we all have to be completely authentic and to live in a society that cultivates our true expression as human beings.

This is also the time when members of the Shambhala community are encouraged to make a financial donation to Shambhala in order to help support the activities of our worldwide community.

You are invited to join the Kootenay Shambhala community in welcoming in the new Tibetan year – that of the Earth Pig.

All are welcome, come for whatever parts of the day you like. The schedule is:

2.30pm – Sadhana of Basic Goodness

3.30pm – Coffee, tea, desserts

4.15pm – videos from Shambhala Global Services, group practice,

                welcoming new members, and more!

5.30pm – Potluck dinner

7.00pm – Evening Gathering: offering from the sangha (including

                our children & youth sangha and you!) and dancing.

Hope to see you there!

To drop deep into the practices and connect with my true nature. Rubin

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
