Shambhala Ireland & UK Leadership Gathering

September 1st—September 3rd (2017)

Date details +
    Room: London meditation hall
    Program Registration is Closed.

    Leaders and potential leaders within Shambhala are warmly invited to meet with the Kalapa Council Head of Governance, Jane Arthur, to engage in meaningful conversation and an exploration of Shambhala vision. A key question will be: How can we more clearly understand who we are as Shambhala centres and groups, and how can we communicate that to others?

    There are times when we feel embarassed by the scale of our own vision. There are times when we wonder where we fit within the vast network of mindfulness and Buddhist groups, trainers and associations. 

    At the recent Kalapa Garchen, led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and His Kalapa Council these questions were engaged with and a proclamation was given - that our pupose and intention is to create an enlightened society, and that we are invited to adopt this as our primary reason for existing, and our primary message to others.

    There is no fee for this programme but you will have the opportunity offer a heart gift to Minister Arthur for her teaching and support.

    We will begin with a reception/social gathering on the Friday night and continue through Saturday and Sunday, aiming to finish by around 2 pm. Attendance is by invitation only. Please contact Lee Howson [email protected]
