    Come join us for our annual midsummer's day celebration!

    Over the years, the Shambhala community has adopted a tradition of celebrating the changes of season. These special days of celebration are called nyida days – from nyima (“sun”) and dawa (“moon”). Nyida days occur on or near the days of the spring and autumn equinoxes and the summer and winter solstices.


    This year, we will be at Pavilion #8 at Ridley Creek State Park for a potluck picnic.


    It should have BBQ grills as well as picnic tables and nearby bathrooms.
