Room: London meditation hall

When we look around and see how many problems there are in the world—political, economic, psychological and social—we may lose heart and think there is nothing we can do. We may ask how we can lead our life with power, but not aggression, and act with wisdom and compassion to make a real impact in the world.

Teachings on the Six Ways of Ruling, unique Shambhala teachings on leadership developed by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and his son, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, advise us on how to rule our mind so that our inner peace, wisdom and power can make a difference in our lives and in the world around us. They emphasise the cultivation of wisdom and compassion to help us develop our effectiveness as leaders. They apply to all aspects of our lives, from work to interpersonal relationships.
