Shambhala Arts Day

March 30th (2013)

Date details +
    Room: Main Shrine Room
    Program Registration is Closed.

    We are planning to offer brief workshops, demos, and lectures on all the arts represented by our community. Arts specific to our community such as Ikebana and calligraphy, as well as poetry, music, dance and more.

    We will be offering workshops in the morning and late afternoon. In mid-day the Sakyong is speaking to the community and we expect that this will draw even more people to the event. It's clear that the Sakyong has a vast vision for Shambhala and a great respect for the role that the arts play in creating enlightened society. Let's make our center shine with our natural brilliance!

    Attend any workshop you want or stay the whole day. No RSVPs necessary.  Workshops are being held in the main shrine room and small shrine room concurrently.

    CHILDREN'S ACTIVITIES: The Shambhala Center is offering art and music activities for children, facilitated by Sharon Doetsch-Kidder. 11:00 to 12:00 pm in the Director’s Office. Contact [email protected] for more information; RSVPs are encouraged but not required.
