Lucy Paige & Cricket Desmarais Sent Over some GREAT NEWS about One of My Favorite Annual Events 

Tibetan Monks to Arrive in Key West featuring week-long celebration of culture and Buddhist teachings.
On Sunday, January 19 through Saturday, January 25, 2020, sponsor Tara Mandala Key West meditation group and host St. Paul's Episcopal Church invite the public to help celebrate the "2020 Sacred Arts Tour" at the church's 401 Duval Street location on the corner of Eaton Street. The seven-day Tibetan festival will be led by eight visiting Tibetan monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery-students of H.H. Dalai Lama- and includes noontime dharma talks, a Tibetan Marketplace, classes in the Tibetan Arts, varying music and dance demonstrations of Tibetan culture, and morning and afternoon blessings for the monk's week-long creation of a Medicine Buddha sand mandala for world healing, which will conclude with a procession down Simonton Street to the bayside ocean for a closing ceremony. 
The tour aims to spread the message of peace, loving kindness, wisdom, and compassion while sharing their traditional Tibetan arts and culture, and to raise support for their monastery in south India, where their traditions and culture are preserved. Community and personal arranged blessings by the monks are available. For more information, visit or email
