Please join us for a Losar Celebration Brunch at the Museum on Saturday, March 4th from 12:00 – 3:30 PM

 

Losar is the Tibetan New Year. The Tibetan calendar is based on Tibetan astrology, a synthesis of Indian and Chinese astrology. The Tibetan calendar is lunar, which means it follows the cycles of the moon, so the New Year begins on a new moon. Losar 2017 Begins on February 27th. 2017 is the Year of the Fire Bird.

We will begin with a 30-minute guided meditation led by the Ven. Thupten Phuntsok. Guests will have the opportunity to gain insight into meditation, learn about its health benefits, and practice meditation. The meditation will be followed by a brunch of momos (Tibetan Dumplings), brunch entrees, prosecco, champagne, and dessert. There will be basket raffles with unique prizes.

Tickets are $75 per person. Please RSVP by Feb 28, 2017.
