    Register below to join the morning lhasang and practice session IN PERSON.
    Our morning practice session will be a hybrid practice, with both in-person and virtual participants. The in-person practice is limited to 10 participants and registration is required. On-site details will be sent by email to registrants.
    This program is part of the 2021 Harvest of Peace Celebration at the Boston Shamhala Center.
    The Harvest of Peace is a special Shambhala Community celebration of the Fall Equinox - harvesting in the northern hemisphere and planting in the southern. This time is associated with Ratna energy of nourishing, supporting and enriching. It is a time to contemplate what nourishes us personally and as a community.
    Balancing home, work, social and spiritual lives can be very demanding, so we can take some time to examine and re-seed our relationship with generosity and abundance which strengthen and sustains us throughout the year.
    It's a time of encouragement, raising each other's energy and rousing excitement for the year to come.
