Year of the Water Tiger

Earlier this month the Los Angeles Shambhala community began the year of the Water Tiger with a roar at a gathering of 45 warriors — many of whom haven’t been seen off Zoom since the pandemic closure began two years ago. This event took place at the Neighborhood Church in Pasadena and marked the first in-person gathering after the local indoor mask mandate had been lifted. Smiles were unmasked and abundant! Not even the chilly weather and rain could dampen the spirits of those who attended. This was also our first hybrid event with some participants at home tuning in virtually.  The event was organized, led and staffed by local Council leaders with everyone pitching in for setup and take down. Please join us at the Neighborhood Church for monthly sitting practice and a program for families and children.
