You are warmly invited to join us to mark the changing seasons with meditation practice, reflection, discussion and celebration at this year's Harvest of Peace on Saturday 23 September. 
In a time of global turbulence and unrest we welcome all of you to come as you are, and take comfort in the vision of sanity and wakefulness that we have to offer the world.
For the first time this year the address will be given by the Sakyong Wangmo, as she takes her seat as a teacher in the Shambhala lineage.
Other highlights include a vow ceremony for our new Shastris, community contemplation and discussion and Shambhala Sadhana practice.
And of course the night would not be complete without a festive dinner and dance party!
