Neutral Day: Clean the Center for the New Year

Monday, February 4th from 9 AM to 7 PM

Neutral Day is the day before Shambhala Day. It is considered neutral because traditionally it is a day of rest, the only thing that is recommended to do in this day is to clean and refresh one’s home and shrines in preparation for the coming year. We will gather at the SF Shambhala Center for a thorough cleaning. Please join us!
