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.
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!

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.
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.
