Resources on Current Issues Within Shambhala

For the past few months we have been holding community meetings for members of the centre on harm and misconduct within the International community, including allegations against Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. We wanted to make all the information available to anyone who is connected to the centre, or interested in visiting us. We also aim to hold further meetings which will include an invitation to non-members who are also involved with Shambhala

We are committed to making sure Shambhala London continues to be a place that offers kindness and support, and gives opportunities to learn Buddhist principles and transformative meditation practices.

If you further questions, or would like to tell us anything then please let us know. These are painful and confusing times for us, but we are listening to our centre users, and encouraging the positive changes that are needed within our international Sangha.
