Shambhala Day 2020

February 24th

Date details +
    Room: Main Shrine Room

    You are invited to join the Baltimore Shambhala Center as we celebrate Shambhala Day.  Together, we will enter the New Year of the Iron Mouse and welcome its qualities of adaptability, cleverness, and contentment.  The mouse is the first symbol in the Asian astrological cycle, and is therefore associated with newness and beginnings.

    Please join us for 108 gongs at sunrise, followed by group sitting and practice, and ending with a potluck feast celebration at lunchtime.
