Dear Community,

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 22 September. 
This is a challenging time for Shambhala, and for the world around us. Deep inequalities and injustices are surfacing. Hidden power structures and abuses of that power are being revealed. There is much pain, confusion and loss. There is also much more clarity, and a stronger desire to change, to be better and to do better. Can we take this opportunity to engage with our deepest communal and societal problems?
Our willingness to come together, to appreciate each other, and to support each other has perhaps never been more important to the future of the Centre. Let us also take this opportunity to celebrate all that is good within our tradition, our practices and our lives.
