Talk, “Introduction to Shambhala”:
Shambhala is an ancient teaching on the creation of enlightened culture that goes back to the time of the Buddha. In this presentation we will explore the modern application of these teachings, as practiced at Shambhala Mountain Center as well as the world at large, and their relevance to you and your life.
Please feel free to join us for any or all activities. There is no cost for the program, although we do ask for a $10 lunch donation if you will join us for lunch. We will also be hosting Open Houses on the first Sunday of every month throughout the summer. Registration is not required to attend our Open Houses, although registration allows us to better anticipate levels of attendance and prepare for our visitors.
