Shambhala Day Celebration with Los Angeles Shambhala

Year of the Iron Ox  

Shambhala Meditation Center of Los Angeles invites you for a morning of practice, celebration and recognition for the coming year of the Iron Ox. 

SHAMBHALA DAY marks the beginning of the New Year, and represents one of the most important traditions of Shambhala Buddhism. Based on the traditional Tibetan New Year’s celebration of Losar, the day is calculated astrologically according to the Tibetan lunar calendar, and changes every year to coincide with the annual lunar cycles.

Please note this will replace our regular Sunday sitting. There will also be a seperate celebration with the wider Shambhala mandala on February 12, 2021. You can register for the worldwide practice here.
Your generous support will help us provide online programming that will sustain our community in difficult times.  When donating please note that the donation is for "Shambhala Day". Please give what you can.
Here are some technical and practical tips for being together in an online community: Arrive early for help from the host; Learn how to Mute/Unmute; Ask for help from the host via the Chat function; Consider that we’re together in a meditation hall supporting our own and others’ practice of mindfulness and awareness.

The Shambhala Center of Los Angeles remains open because of the ongoing generosity of our community. One of the cornerstones of our policy is that no one be turned away for lack of funds. If you can’t afford a program, please call our office (323-255-5472) to register based on what you can afford. At the same time, the Center relies on program revenue to cover costs. For those who are able to pay more than the program price, your generosity in paying the Patron Price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price, and provides additional support to the Shambhala Center of Los Angeles. Thank you for your kindness!

If you cancel more than 7 days prior to your class (and have already paid), you will receive a full refund less a processing fee of $15. If you cancel between 1 to 7 days prior to arrival, we will credit your payment towards another program at Shambhala Los Angeles to be used within 1 year. No refunds or credits are issued for cancellations received fewer than 24 hours prior to arrival.
