This is the perfect way to start the new year! Die to the past and move on to the present. Sit in silence and replenish your deepest wisdom. Reconnect with the great mystery. Set intentions for yourself and hopes for the world in the coming year. Laugh, sing and awaken! The celebration event will feature periods of meditation practice, gentle movement, poetry, chanting and an end-of-the-year guided ritual. DJ dancing from midnight to 1:00 am. Buddhists can boogie! Join us in community as we begin another spin on this old rock of ages. All ages are welcome.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this event for $55.
