flags walk way entrance38Everyone is warmly invited to attend a special commemoration October 22 at Serenity Ridge Retreat Center in Virginia in honor of Ligmincha’s 25th anniversary. There is no charge to attend. We extend a special invitation to international visitors to consider attending Fall Retreat, which runs from October 18–21, and also our Science and Spirituality Conference on October 23–24.

Morning activities on October 22 for sangha members include a sang chod ceremony and raising of prayer flags at 8 a.m., tea at 9 a.m., and sangha celebration in the gompa beginning at 10 a.m.

Afternoon activities will be open to the entire Tibetan community and area residents. From 12 noon until 4 p.m., all can enjoy a public event that includes Tibetan food vendors, music, viewing of the new building, and more. Ligmincha's Bookstore and Tibet Shop will be open, and a new book commemorating the 25th anniversary of Ligmincha will be available. It includes photographs submitted by sangha members from around the world.

At this point, plans are being made to provide shuttle service to and from Serenity Ridge during the afternoon, and parking along Rickfish River Road (Route 617). Cars will not be allowed to enter or leave the Serenity Ridge grounds from 7:30 a.m. onward because the entry road will be blocked. For updates on parking, check the Serenity Ridge website and Facebook page closer to the date.
