Shambhala Sunday Gathering
Celebrating Touching the Earth Collective’s 5th Birthday!
Join us in a Celebration of 5 years of being a Collective! What have we done? Where are we now? What did get wrong? What else are we going to do?
Even though we are 5 years old, there are those that are still unaware there is such a thing in Shambhala! This is a chance to take a peek! In October 2018, we got together. On our 5th birthday we will take a snapshot of the last five years of activities.
We will be reporting live from Karme Choling, where Touching the Earth has been invited to present Earth protection as an integral part of Warrior Assembly.
We will share the Mission, Vision and Values of the Shambahla Touching the Earth Collective and check in on how we have developed. Speaking from the mountains and colorful October woods of Vermont, please join us for this celebration and some birthday cake!
