Harvest of Peace Celebration – Sept. 20, 2014

This year’s Harvest of Peace gathering was a small but very joyful group of members who were delighted to connect again and celebrate the autumn equinox together. It seemed like a long summer without a centre at which to unite as a community.

It was such a pleasure to meditate together, do the sadhana practice which was led by Shastri Henry Chapin, and have a sumptuous lunch. We also listened to the Sakyong’s inspiring talk. Given that the People’s Climate March and Mobilization was taking place in New York City and other major centres this weekend, the Harvest of Peace celebration offered our members the perfect opportunity to reflect and engage around environmental issues and climate change. Afterward, most of us trekked over to see the new Centre. It’s coming together very nicely!  Check out our Move Page periodically for updates.

The fundraising campaign for the relocation to a new centre continues as we have experienced a financial shortfall due to the project being significantly over budget. As of September 20, our community members and friends donated $20,728! We thank you very much for your continued generosity, and welcome more donations in order to reach our target of $60,000.

We look forward to seeing you at the new centre!
