We are combining a nyinthun with Harvest of Peace.
The nyinthun is a time of intensive practice for ongoing spiritual deepening. Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche began nyinthüns, and they continue as a way for us to have an ongoing spiritual path that deepens over time.
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.
The schedule divided into two practice sessions: morning (9-12) and afternoon (1-4:30), and it will include daily chants. This day of practice will also include contemplative readings, and tonglen.
9am Opening Chants & Guided Meditation Instruction
10am Harvest of Peace Talk (Jinpa Heinz)
12pm – 1pm Snack and Beverages will be available.
1pm Contemplation Reading
4pm Closing – Dedicate Merit
