Festival of Prayer – Schedule

You are invited to join us in our Festival of Prayer Festival of Peace

23 – 27 May, 2018, Brasilia

There is no cost to attend the festival

Donations are gratefully received.

Dancers and musicians from around the world will offer sacred dance and music to uplift and inspire us, following traditional Tibetan rituals of blessing and empowerment.

Dancers and audience have the opportunity to accumulate wisdom and refined spiritual energy. May we, through this sincere effort, bless our lives, our families, our countries and our world.

There are several ways that you can participate on any of the five days. There will be a text available for purchase (R$27) with all the prayers. You can sit and read/sing the prayers and watch the dancers engage in the dance meditations.

There will be many simple movement meditations that you can join, no experience necessary.

Everyone will be led step by step into the profound visualization practices of invoking Tara and our sources of refuge and making offerings that increase the potent spiritual energies available to us through these practices.
