    About Harvest of Peace
    Harvest of Peace, 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).

    Harvest of Peace is celebrated near the Autumn Equinox in the Northern hemisphere and the Spring Equinox in the Southern hemisphere. Historically, this special day is associated with the feeling of appreciation, the spirit of generosity and sharing the bounty of the season. It is an opportunity for our community to gather, practice together, 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 at this time.

    Covid policy: Up-to-date COVID vaccination is recommended to reduce the risk of serious disease, but vaccination or masking is no longer required to attend in-person events at our Center. More details here.
