Gentle and Strong: A Fresh Start to the New Year is the theme of this year's Sit-A-Thon for the Shambhala Meditation Center of Denver (SMCD).

This fundraising event will take place online and in your home from 12 Noon Saturday, January 2nd, 2021 until 12 Noon Sunday, January 3rd, 2021 and will naturally be full of sitting meditation, walking meditation, as well as periodic dharma talks.

We aim to reduce our Center's monthly Covid deficit with this light-hearted and spacious 24-hour fundraising event (via Zoom). This year SMCD is coordinating jointly with the Boulder Shambhala Center and Dorje Khyung Dzong. While participants from all Centers will sit together on Zoom, 100 percent of any donation you make through SMCD will stay with SMCD.
