Troy Shambhala in December

Dear Troy Shambhala,

December is a busy time of tending to our network of social connections, making sure it’s cared for—making that invisible network of society visible in form and action. Come sit and express society in its most simple form. Sitting is from 6:30-7:30 PM, as usual. And do join us for the following extras after sitting:

December 6: Group dinner in downtown Troy
