    Join us for games, music, community, and food! 

    We welcome the year's longest day with a small lhasang, or smoke purification ceremony at 11:30 am, enjoy a potluck of fresh summery goodness, play music and yard games, and enjoy each other's company.

    Please bring a lovely dish, beverage, or dessert, and a musical talent or instrument to share.

    We’d love to see you!

    Over the years our community has adopted a tradition of celebrating the changes of the seasons. These are called "nyida" days from the Tibetan words nyima (sun) and dawa (moon), and they occur on or near the days of the equinoxes and solstices. Nyida days are family-oriented celebrations and occasions for local Shambhala communities to gather socially. Midsummer Day observes the summer solstice.
