LIVE SACRED ART CEREMONY
Creation: Sand Mandala Opening
TUESDAY, July 17 • 7pm • Donation
DAILY VIEWING: July 18-28, 1-5pm • Donation
Watch the team of Monks recreate an ancient tradition by building a Sacred Sand Painting dedicated to the Medicine Buddha, Menla – healer of inner and outer illnesses. Viewing this detailed Mandala opens the mind and awakens the spirit. When a Mandala is built of sand, the goodness that it brings is multiplied by the number of grains of sand that it contains. Stop by daily to see the mandala evolve.


SPECIAL BLESSING RITUAL
Chay Drol: Clearing Obstacles
WEDNESDAY, July 18 • 7pm • $20 ADV/$25 at door
This powerful ritual helps remove obstacles that prevent one from achieving enlightenment. The Lama places colored strings and fabric (ritually fused to represent obstacles) on participants. The obstacles are cut using Weapons of Wisdom, opening the door to liberation, wisdom, and achieving your goals.


GUIDED HEALING MEDITATION - ALL ARE WELCOME
Healing for Healers
FRIDAY, July 20 • 7pm • $25 ADV/$30 at door
Join us for our traditional Healing for Healers. This ritual cleansing by Vajravidharan, the Buddha of Purification, removes negativity and its subtle imprints, bringing clarity of body, mind, and spirit. Especially beneficial to those in the healing arts, this ritual is open to everyone.


GUIDED MEDITATION
Medicine Buddha Empowerment
SATURDAY, July 21 • 7pm • $25 ADV/$30 at door
This is a blessing for good health, awakening the innate healing wisdom that lies within us all. This mantra helps heal the body and mind, gently transforming emotional states, helping us to deal with any situation clearly and directly. It promotes peace, calm, and tranquility in your heart.
 

MEET THE MONKS!
Monk Life
SUNDAY, July 22 • 2pm • $10 ADV/$15 at door

CHANTING and BLESSINGS
Traditional Tea Ceremony
TUESDAY, July 24 • 7pm • $15 ADV/$20 at door
The monks end their day with this warm, chanted ceremony reminding us to be grateful for blessings overflowing - literally. Participants may bring a wish or request for any kind of blessing. The ceremony will be followed by a brief, silent meditation.


GUIDED MEDITATION
Manjushri Wisdom Empowerment
THURSDAY, July 26 • 7pm • $25 ADV/$30 at door
Manjushri is the embodiment of the wisdom of all the Buddhas. Wisdom is crucial for enlightenment. It is both the antidote of ignorance, and at the same time, it’s the true meaning of selflessness/emptiness. Performing the practice of Manjushri accelerates the attainment of the knowledge that eliminates suffering. By “sipping the nectar” of the profound teachings delivered by Manjushri, one has access to the heart of liberating wisdom.


CEREMONY
Impermanence: Sand Mandala Closing
SATURDAY, July 28 • 7pm • $10 adult/$5 kids 5-12
The meditative Mandala practice culminates with a closing ceremony and the destruction of the Mandala, signifying the transience of life. Be a part of this traditional ceremony of compassion and blessings. Participants receive a small piece of the Mandala.

CEREMONY ON THE BRIDGE
Water Blessing of the Sand Mandala
SUNDAY, July 29 • 9:30am
