About The Event
A Lunar New Year Gathering with Jambo Truong and David Kam
Join Jambo and David to usher in the Lunar New Year through the lenses of their cultural traditions. All are truly welcome, with priority offered to E/SEAsians and those who celebrate the tradition. This donation-based event supports the #kindredpacket kampaign in efforts to raise funds for charities supporting the elderly and the un-homed.
**If you cannot attend the event live, you can purchase a recording of the evening here.**
The evening will begin with a freeing movement practice guided by David to cultivate openness. Jambo will then be doing an opening ceremony connecting to Guan Yin, an archetype of compassion which we will be directing back to ourselves and those we care about. The ceremony is designed to be a meditative experience to take us inwards and enable us to move our desired energy out into the year, making 2021 a year of generosity to ourselves.
The evening can be experienced as a cultural or religious experience based on how you choose to be within the space. You are free to join in and be in the experience or observe as.
A common altar will be set up on behalf of all who attends.
Should you wish to set up your own altar, here’s what you need :
- 3 sticks of incense
- 2 red / yellow candles
- fruits / flowers / herbal tea
