This program is based on the 16 Guidelines for a Happy Life. It is suitable for all families who want to come together to enjoy these practical tools and fun experiences for creating more kindness and peace in the world.

The Lotus Project for Peace
2019 marks 60 years since the Dalai Lama fled Tibet unable to return. Following the Nobel Peace Prize winners example we’d like to mark this anniversary with a project to inspire all of us to work together to create a more peaceful world.
Over four Fridays in February paper artist, Lek Hoffman will guide us to create a beautiful garden of paper lotuses. These delicate flowers represent our hopes for the Tibetan people and the flourishing of Human Rights throughout our world.
Our completed lotus will be displayed as a beautiful carpet across our Prayer Wheel lawn on Sunday March 10. A perfect place to gather for prayer and meditation.
Everyone is invited to participate in this special community project. You don’t need to have any special crafting talents just a desire to join in and contribute to creating something beautiful.
Join us in the Gompa between 10:30am and 12:00pm on February 8th 15th 22nd and March 1st
