Join a group of like-minded individuals for our annual New Year‘s Eve celebration! Ring in the New Year in a meaningful and positive way, with compassion and beneficial intentions!

We will enjoy hors d’oeuvres and non-alcoholic beverages from 9:30 to 10:45pm. Then Gen Kelsang Rigpa will give an introduction to the practice of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, which is a beautiful arrangement of prayers and mantras; we will then engage in the practice itself. As midnight approaches, Gen Rigpa will guide us in a meditation to take us into 2020.

This event is a wonderful opportunity for making our New Year’s resolutions extra powerful. With a peaceful and compassionate mind, we can dedicate for the welfare of the whole world.
