    The Shambhala tradition believes in the inherent wisdom, compassion, and courage of all beings.
    It holds that these noble qualities are ultimately more stable than aggression and greed.

    The Shambhala Sadhana is a profound practice, written by the Sakyong, that reminds us of humanity's noble qualities by reconnecting us with the basic goodness inherent in ourselves, in our community, and in the greater society. Once a month on or near the full moon, community members gather to share in this practice as a way to cultivate community through food, meditation, and conversation.

    Practicing the Shambhala Sadhana normally requires that one receive a reading transmission and empowerment on the text. However, on these full moon gatherings, all community members are warmly invited into the practice.

    The practice begins at 6p and is followed by a potluck feast. Participants are invited to offer food and/or drink, if they are inspired and able.
