BUILDING THE CATALOG: A YEAR-ROUND EVENT
In the 50 weeks that the auction's not happening the Shambhala Sun Foundation is involved in collecting items: jewelry, art, vacation and retreat stays, unique experiences, meditation and yoga materials, books signed and not, audio recordings, lessons, music and DVDs.
The catalog is the heart of the event. Over the last seven years it's grown tenfold, from 34 to more than 300 items, and established the auction as a much anticipated end-of-year event in the lives of bidders, donors, and Foundation - all of whom enjoy and share in its success.
Making a contribution couldn't be easier and it's a tremendous way of showing support. Drop me a line, tell me what you have in mind, and I'll take it from there.

The Annual Online Auction: Where Giving, Receiving, and Enjoying Meet
We hope that you, like us, find the auction an enjoyable way to support our efforts: every purchase you make benefits the Foundation's ongoing work. Both Buddhadharma: the Practitioner's Quarterly and Mindful magazine are examples of the types of initiative the Shambhala Sun has been able to mount with the assistance of fundraising. The proceeds from this auction will be directed similarly.
We are tremendously grateful to auction donors - the advertisers, contributing artists and writers, and supporters - whose generosity in each of our eight years has allowed us to present this auction.
