Although we do not have the opportunity to gather together as a spiritual community at Kailash for this year’s SDC, we still have the wonderful opportunity to tune in from our homes to connect with each other and generate powerful and beneficial minds collectively.

The celebration will include teachings and guided meditations and it is possible to sign up for the whole celebration or parts of it. The teachings will be held in English with German, French and Italian translation.
