Shambhala New Year 2021: Year of the Iron Ox (Online)

February 14th

Date details +
    Room: Online


    Shambhala New Year 2021 will usher in the Year of the Iron Ox. The Iron Ox has a strong quality of earth, and discovering what is already naturally available to us. The Ox doesn't have to look far to find what is needed. The Ox year is also connected with unity, and focusing on hard work - such as ploughing the fields. We are advised not to be too hasty in Ox years, but to take time for consideration before acting or making decisions. It is said that some efforts planted in the Ox year will take time to harvest and enjoy fruition.

    We will celebrate Shambhala Day on Sunday, February 14th, 9:30-11:30 AM. Our local schedule will be announced here (please check back) and in the weekly e-newsletter.

    We look forward to celebrating the Year of the Iron Ox with a focus on our shared love of the Shambhala dharma and a sense of deep appreciation for community bonds.
