New Year’s Eve is finally here and that means people in Los Angeles County will celebrate the beginning of 2013 with family and friends. In a city like L.A. that is known for, among other things, a vibrant party scene, many residents and tourists staying in L.A. vacation rentals may be looking for a less raucous way to ring in the new year. If this applies to you, then you may want to consider attending Peace Awareness Labyrinth and Gardens’ meditation retreat and party.
This affair will be held at the Shambhala Meditation Center of Los Angeles, which is located at 963 Colorado Boulevard and the Peace Awareness Labyrinth and Gardens, an oasis situated at 3500 West Adams Boulevard in L.A.
Start off at the Shambhala Center. After paying the $25 entrance fee, you’ll have the opportunity to work on your meditation skills and watch a DVD of the Shambhala leader Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche speaking at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral. He’ll be talking about the importance of bringing about positive change to everything that surrounds you in your daily life, and how to do it.
Then make your way over to the labyrinth, which serves more as a walkway then a maze. If you think you’ll spend forever trying to find your way out, think again. You won’t get lost or find yourself in state of confusion, as the winding road serves more as a place to find inner peace than anything else. That means you’ll have plenty of time to make it out before midnight.
