Blessing of the Butterflies 2022

October 1st @1:00 – 2:30PM PST

Monarch Grove Sanctuary (Pacific Grove, CA)

On Saturday, October 1st starting at 1:00PM PST, Rinpoche will offer a prayer of blessing and scatter flower petals in the Monarch Grove Sanctuary.  Attendees are encouraged to bring flower petals to add to the ceremony. 

Every year, Khenpo Karten Rinpoche prays together with the Pacific Grove community for the monarch butterflies as they make their epic 3000 mile migration stopping at the Pacific Grove Monarch Sanctuary.  The monarchs need prayers more than ever.   Last year’s annual butterfly count showed their numbers down by 99%.

The Monarch Grove Sanctuary is located at 250 Ridge Road, Pacific Grove, CA, 93950.
