Harvest of Peace is a special Shambhala Community celebration of the Fall Equinox - harvesting in the northern hemisphere and planting in the southern. This time is associated with the Ratna/Earth energy of nourishing, supporting and enriching. It is a time to contemplate what nourishes us personally and as a community. 

Balancing home, work, social and spiritual lives can be very demanding, so we can take some time to examine and re-seed our relationship with generosity and abundance which strengthen and sustains us throughout the year.

It's a time of encouragement, raising each other's energy and rousing excitement for the year to come. Members and friends are invited to reconnect with the Shambhala community. Newcomers are welcome to see what we are all about!

We will be following all CDC recommendations and local regulations regarding in-person gathering, including social distancing and masks. Refreshments will be scaled back this year given the current circumstances. Though we will provide some packaged snacks, please bring your own drinks and any food you’d like for your own consumption. No alcohol permitted. 


3:00 to 4:00 pm - Lhasang and community practice.

4:00 to 5:00 pm - State of the center address, appreciations.

5:00 to 7:00 pm - Prayer Flag making for all ages and socially distanced Social! Some packaged snacks will be provided but please bring your own snacks and drinks if you’d like. No alcohol. There are picnic tables in the beautiful outdoor space.

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 us at 323-963-3001 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 (when available) 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.
