Shambhala Day 2021—Year of the Iron Ox

February 12th

Date details +
    Room: Online Program

    Shambhala Day marks the beginning of the New Year and represents one of the most important traditions of Shambhala Buddhism.

    The Iron Ox has a strong quality of earth, and discovering what is already naturally available to us. The Ox doesn't have to look far to find what is needed. The Ox year is also connected with unity, and focusing on hard work - such as ploughing the fields. We are advised not to be too hasty in Ox years, but to take time for consideration before acting or making decisions. It is said that some efforts planted in the Ox year will take time to harvest and enjoy fruition.

    We will join together in a worldwide group practice during this year's broadcast. We will share Shambhala culture, and greetings from throughout our worldwide community. There will be new components to this year’s broadcast as well as some more traditional elements.

    Our program policy has changed to reflect the current situation with online programs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Registration
    Please register and pay online in advance of the program to make certain you receive all communications including the link for the program.

    Our online payment system is set up to accept one payment amount through PayPal. It is not necessary to pay using your PayPal account as it will also process credit card payments.

    Generosity Policy
    The San Francisco Shambhala Center is funded solely by your membership and program donations. Thank you for your generosity as you consider what you can pay for each program at our Center. We strive to price our programs in a way that accurately reflects the financial need of our Center and the cost to us of producing the program.

    We are committed to offering our programs to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. Most programs include a base program price, a patron price, as well as a sliding scale option.

    If you need to reach a member of the Shambhala Center Staff, email info [at] sfshambhala [dot] org with your inquiry.

    What is the Patron Price?
    The other aspect of our Generosity Policy is our Patron Price. Those who are able to offer more than the regular program price can select the Patron Price option.  By selecting this option, your generosity is helping to cover the costs of those who may not be able to pay the full price of the program. Thank you for your consideration, and for helping all to receive the treasure of the Shambhala Dharma.

    We appreciate you registering and paying online. This helps us not only to plan for the program, but speeds up the registration line on the day of the program.

    Refund Policy
    If you are unable to attend a program for which you have pre-registered and paid, and contact us to cancel participation at least one week (7 calendar days) prior to the start of the program, you are entitled to either receive a refund less the cost of processing the payment, or you can apply the full payment amount to the cost of an upcoming program of your choice.

    If you cancel your participation within the week prior to the program, you can apply those funds to another upcoming program of your choice.

    No refunds will be given for cancellations after a program has begun.
