Program Recordings

The Boulder Shambhala Center is pleased to announce that we are beginning to offer program recordings for purchase. After numerous requests from students outside of our immediate physical area and others unable to attend programs in person for a variety of reasons, we hope this new initiative will help these precious teachings reach a wider audience.

Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel
August 10-11, 2019
Claiming Agency to Our Own Awakening

In this program, the brilliant and talented teacher, Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel, tackled the essence of the Buddha’s teachings in fresh and beautifully articulate language. She even likes Dave Chapelle! Topics covered include dependent arising, pure perception, karma, healing vs. fixing, devotion, agency & discernment, and much more. This program was wonderful to be a part of and is not to be missed!

You can purchase or rent the professional, broadcast quality recordings here.



Ringu Tulku Rinpoche
October 11-12, 2019
Meeting Challenges: Obstacles as the Stepping Stones to Enlightenment

In his book, Riding Stormy Waves, Rinpoche writes, “Obstacles are the true path. If there are no obstacles, there is no path.” This is the notion of bringing everything we encounter to the path of awakenment. The situations we find most frustrating or disappointing can show us where we’re holding back, where we’re trying—and failing—to find security for ourselves. The challenging situations of our lives can be the basis of letting go of our Me Project and discovering not only our unlimited brilliance and compassion, but a vivid connection to the whole world.

Rinpoche’s presence at BSC was a warm and healing experience. We hope you enjoy these special and timely teachings! Available here.
