Harvest of Peace

Sunday, September 27th will be the last Sunday morning meditation gathering in our outdoor pavilion. This is also one of four annual Nyida* Days in Shambhala culture that mark the changing of the seasons. We celebrate the transition from summer to autumn as the Harvest of Peace.

We will begin practice at 9:oo am, and end the morning with a community lhasang and picnic lunch offered by Dorje Denma Ling.

Please join us, but first let us know if you are coming by registering for this event.

* (Nyi = sun and Da = moon)

If you are coming on the land, please review and observe our health and safety guidelines below.


Coming to DDL?

Please Follow These Guidelines

  1. If you’re coming, we need to know.
    Before you come, please call our main number (902.657-9085) and leave a message at least a day before. Or you may text the Director’s mobile phone 919.259.5451. She will call you back to make a plan for coming to the land.
  2. You need to be healthy and without symptoms.
    Please monitor your health before you come. If you have any symptoms of illness, we ask that you stay home.
  3. Please do not enter the main building: it is reserved for our “staff bubble.”
    When you arrive, we will direct you to the location of the event. The main building, which includes our shrine room and dining room, is for staff use only at this time. Other restrooms will be made available for use.
  4. Please bring your face mask. We are required by law to wear a face mask whenever we are inside an enclosed space. For Sunday morning meditation, you should wear a mask when entering and taking or leaving your seat. Once seated for meditation, it is OK to remove the mask during practice.
  5. Don’t forget to wash or sanitize your hands a lot, and cover all coughs and sneezes using the inside of your elbow or a tissue.
  6. At all times, maintain the physical distance of 2 meters between you and others who are not in your household or personal bubble.
