Register to the right to sign up for ALL End of Year Practice Sessions
Donations are Welcome!
Shambhala Online offers end-of-year practices free of charge to support our community. We gratefully welcome your donations so we can continue to share the Dharma with our community and the world.
All sessions are at 3:00pm EST. Use the time zone converter for your local start time.
Join us each day from Feb 10-19 for a FREE (Donations welcome) line-up of “Shambhala New Year Programming." These special events will take place in the end of year practice period before Shambhala Day, and will feature talks by teachers in our community, followed by group recitations of the protector, mamo, and closing chants.
Each daily talk will follow roughly the same schedule:
- Welcome and Presentation (30 mins)
- Sitting Chants (25 mins)
- Closing & opportunity to give
This year's sessions will offer a daily exploration of the protector chants, deepening our understanding of this tradition and greatly enriching our ability to practice in a whole-hearted way.
Presenters for these end of year practice gatherings are: Lodrö Dorje, Daniel Naistadt, Tillie Perks, Eve Rosenthal, John Rockwell, Jeff Scott, Judith Simmer-Brown, Alfonso Taboada, and Scott Wellenbach.

About Year End Practices:
During the last 11 days of the year, we offer end-of-year practices to lay the ground for a positive transition into the New Year. The first 10 of these days are a time for intensive practice, focused on protector chants as a way to help overcome obstacles in our life, our community and the world. The end of the year is traditionally considered a positive time to do these practices. Other end of year activities could also include cleaning the household and shrine, resolving debts or disputes, and gathering energy for the new year.
The last day before Shambhala Day is a “neutral day” (Feb 20, 2023) on which we could do the final preparations for the New Year, having finished the practice from the 10 days before.
We look forward to seeing you!
