New Year’s Eve Green Tara Chanting

Sun Dec 31st at 4pm, 8pm, and midnight / Mon Jan 1st at 4am, 8am, and noon.

Cost: Free (donations gratefully accepted)

Create powerful positive energy for 2019 by making chanted prayers to Buddha Green Tara for world peace.

Green Tara is the female Buddha of active compassion and wisdom, and she shows that women as well as men can attain the state of Buddhahood.    Buddha Green Tara sends out healing, loving energy to all living beings, and by making prayers to her we can receive this energy as blessings.    Tara means ‘rescuer’, so by relying on this female Wisdom Buddha, we can gain powerful inspiration and protection for ourselves and others.

Each session lasts about an hour.    Drop in for any one of the sessions, or come to as many as you like.

We will also have snacks, tea, and decaf coffee from 9pm to 11pm on New Year’s Eve.   Some of our regulars will be there, so please come and hang out with us if you can.

Our midnight session is the most unique, come a little bit early and we will have sparkling apple cider and count down the new year.   At midnight we also turn off all the lights and burn candles for the whole session, it’s really quite special.

No previous experience is required.   Everyone is welcome!
