The fun will begin on Saturday, February 29th at 1:00 PM and continue through the afternoon until the ibis flock soars past us down the river at sunset.
Come sample traditional vegetarian food; watch demonstrations by some of our local martial artists; and experience soothing meditative musical compositions. The entire event will take place within the positive healing energies of the Center’s beautiful Stupa Garden of Awareness on the banks of Miami’s Little River.

Grand Stupa of Reconciliation
In the region of San Martin, in the Peruvian jungle, near the city of Lamas and the town of Rumizapa, is the Great Stupa of Reconciliation Rime Jangchub Chöten.
Its construction began in 2014 thanks to the effort and collaboration of Buddhist practitioners of various traditions and supporters. It is 15 meters high and contains one hundred thousand Tzatzas, with carefully prepared mantras during days of meditation and contemplation.
The intention of this project is to contribute to the happiness and peace of the region by sharing skillful means, mental training techniques and practical and contemplative knowledge with deep respect for local traditions.
