It’s time for another Farm Day! On June 20th, please join us for this very special event done in conjunction with Kadampa Meditation Center of Maryland by Buddhist teacher, Gen Kelsang Chogden. After our monthly farm tours at 1pm and 2pm, the meditation will begin at 3pm. Meditation session is FREE – please bring a chair or blanket to sit on.
Because Burleigh is an animal sanctuary, the focus of our meditation will be Compassion for Animals. Developing compassion and kindness for animals is more important than ever in this modern day. When approached correctly, compassion is an uplifting and transformative state of mind. The more we open our hearts to animals of all shapes and sizes, the more our empathy will grow. In this way we can develop universal compassion, the most humane and beneficial state of mind. Everyone is welcome to attend!
Our afternoon farm tours are one hour walking tours of the entire farm led by our volunteer tour guide Rissa Miller. On the tour, you will meet the animal residents of the farm and learn a little about the property history as well.
Tours kick off at 1pm and 2pm and are a suggested donation of $10/adult and $5/child. The Burleigh Manor gift shop is always open during our tours so you will have the opportunity to purchase one of our famous awesome Burleigh Manor t-shirts, a notebook, or even some handmade quince jelly-produced from quinces on the farm! We also have delicious baked good available for purchase after the tours. 100% of sales benefit the animals.
Get your tickets now! We can’t wait to see you on June 20th.
