About Harvest of Peace
Harvest of Peace is one of four annual Nyida Day celebrations in Shambhala culture. Each of these holidays mark the changing of the seasons, hence the name Nyida Day (Nyi = sun and Da = moon).
The tone for Harvest of Peace is usually based on fostering closeness and community in local sanghas, with practice and seasonal social events. Traditionally, celebrations would include plans for sharing the bounty of the seasons together as a society, such as cooking together, planting or harvesting a garden, having a communal meal, going on a nature walk or sharing a picnic together. It would also be appropriate to organize volunteers from your community for a “day of service” in support of a local charity or specific initiative as a way to engage with generosity during this time of year.
Due to rising COVID cases in Boulder County and worldwide, we ask that you practice social distancing & mask requirements.
We wish you the best in health and well-being!
