    Harvest of Peace is celebrated near the Autumn Equinox in the Northern hemisphere and the Spring Equinox in the Southern hemisphere. It is one of four annual Nyida Day celebrations in Shambhala culture. Each of these holidays mark the turning of the seasons, hence the name Nyida Day (Nyi = sun and Da = moon). Historically, this special day is associated with the feeling of appreciation, the spirit of generosity and sharing the bounty of the seasons. It’s an opportunity for our community to gather, hear teachings, enjoy good food and drink, and celebrate the richness of our local cultures and heritage. The theme of appreciation includes all of these things, and especially the goodness of our bond as a community.

    Donations Welcome!
