A time for our community to come together to practice the Shambhala Sadhana. All are welcome—and encouraged—to join, no matter what your level of experience.
In January of 2011, toward the end of his year retreat, the Kongma Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche composed the Shambhala Sadhana as a way to celebrate and strengthen our understanding of basic goodness and enlightened society. He requests that on or near the full moon, we gather as a community to practice the Shambhala Sadhana. These Full Moon gatherings (we actually hold the practices on the Sunday closest to the Full Moon so that more of our community can attend) are a community practice for members to celebrate and strengthen our understanding of basic goodness and enlightened society. This remarkable practice will serve as a way to connect our community with the vision, dignity and delight of Shambhala.
Once a month on a Sunday morning, the Shambhala Sadhana, followed by a potluck feast, will be offered on or near the full moon in place of our morning sitting meditation practice.
