Midsummer's Day Garden Party & Community Celebration!

June 27th

Date details +
    Room: Off Site
    The Midsummer’s Day Festival was initiated by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche (the founder of Shambhala) in the late 1970’s. He encouraged us as a community to have a deep connection with the seasons and the natural world. Midsummer's Day is a celebration of the Summer solstice (June 20th) – the longest day of the year - and we will be celebrating it on the following Sunday, on June 27th.

    Community members, families and friends are welcome to attend this outdoor event!

    Bring: A potluck dish to share (if you are vaccinated); grill available for those who would like to cook on the spot; BYOB; BYOC (bring your own cushion or chair for meditation). Serving utinsils and silverware will be available but scarce, so whatever you can bring of your own, including dishes and glasses, will be appreciated.
