From the Process Team:

Dear Shambhala community members, past and present,

We warmly invite you to join us in Shambhala Community Conversations: open, community-wide discussions on important topics, designed to foster connection, reflection, insight, and action across Shambhala.

All are welcome in these conversations. In them, we share our diverse views and experiences in a gentle and caring group space. We connect and listen deeply, and share what themes emerge with Shambhala’s community and leadership, so that our voices enrich the ongoing conversation. (You can learn more about how Community Conversations are summarized and shared at https://shambhala-process-team.org/shambhala-community-conversations/#sharing.)

Please register for any upcoming Community Conversation here: https://shambhalaonline.org/community-engagement-initiative/ Registrations are first-come, first-served; each conversation is capped at around 20 participants.


Program Highlights: 

 

Deepening Connection with White Tara with Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown

Saturday, May 22 & Sunday, May 23, 9am-4pm MDT each day

White Tara practices have long been popular in Kagyu and Nyingma communities; this particular short practice was composed years ago by Sakyong Mipham to soothe illness, disharmony, and suffering in the Shambhala community. This weekend retreat is open to practitioners who have taken refuge vows and who are ready to commit to a compassion practice.

“Don’t Wander!” Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s Song of Experience
with Acharya Richard John

Saturday, June 19, 8:30am-4pm MDT

The profound and brief teaching “Don’t Wander!” was written by Trungpa Rinpoche when he was a teenaged monk in Tibet. In five lines it gives pith instructions that cover the entire path of dharma from a vajrayana perspective.

Pre-requisite: Participants must be Shambhala vajrayana practitioners—those who received transmission at Sacred World Assembly or Vajrayana Seminary.
