    Celebrating the seasons is an important part of mainaining our connection to  the natural world in Shambhala. Around the globe, Shambhalians celebrate four 'Nyida Days' around the solstices and equinoxes. The roots of the word are 'Nyi' (from Nyima, 'sun' in Tibetan) and 'Da' (from Dawa, 'moon' in Tibetan) which "are meant to commemorate the ongoing dance of sun, moon and earth as reflected in the changing seasons solstices and equinoxes"
     
    By joining spiritual practice with the practicalities, challenges and joys of everyday urban life as well as the cycles of our environment, we forge a society that expresses the dignity of human experience. Midsummer Day is an opportunity for families and friends in Shambhala to celebrate the longest day of the year together.
