Harvest of Peace

Harvest of Peace 2018

The Harvest of Peace Nyida Day is our opportunity to focus on community, and to mark the changing of seasons as a sangha. “Nyi” comes from “Nyima” meaning sun, and “da” comes from “dawa” meaning moon, so together Nyida is the name given to the holidays where we mark the seasonal solstice and equinox days.

We will share this important community day with our friends at Karmê Chöling.  There will be food, conversation, practicing the Shambhala Sadhana, and chanting. View the details of the day here on Karmê Chöling’s website. The St. Johnsbury Center will be closed on Sunday, Sept. 16; please note that there will be no Sunday Sitting.
