Harvest of Peace

September 22nd

    Room: Main Shrine Room

    It is clear that summer has come to an end when you walk outside and breathe in crisp, cool fall air.  Autumn is a season of abundance and harvest and is also a time to recognize impermanence and show gratitude.    

    The Baltimore Shambhala Center will be hosting our annual Harvest of Peace celebration on Sunday September 22nd, just before the autumnal equinox takes place the next day.   We will gather at 10 a.m. to practice and celebrate together, which will include a membership pin ceremony for all of those who have chosen to officially join the sangha as members in the past year.  All of this will be followed by a potluck lunch together.  So break out your favorite fall recipes and come join us for warmth, community, and a delicious meal!
