Atlantic Regional Conference 2019

October 4 - 6, 2019


At this important time of reflection and renewal for Shambhala, everyone is invited to participate in the Atlantic Regional Conference (ARC) — Shambhala leaders, educators, kasung, members and friends from across the Atlantic region.

More a Shambhala community gathering than a traditional conference, ARC includes practice, wide open discussions, visioning and social events celebrating Atlantic Canada’s unique culture.

We will use open agenda-setting approaches to set topics of conversation according to the interests of participants, as well as check in with centres and groups across the region to hear how they are working with the current situation.

Whether you’ve been a member of the community for decades, or are relatively new to the sangha, ARC provides a wonderful opportunity to connect and make new friends. Please join us on the beautiful land of Dorje Denma Ling to enjoy this special time together.

Weekend Schedule

ARC begins Friday evening with a delightful “Local Gifts Reception.” Bring along a locally-made delectable (e.g., cheese, chocolate, pate, sweets, farm fresh vegetable, dips, etc.) in order to celebrate your own corner of Atlantic Canada. Share your stories along with the local delights to kick off our gathering with a sense of richness and generosity.

Saturday morning, we begin with meditation practice led by Acharya Moh Hardin and Shastris from Atlantic Canada, followed by various discussions and exercises pertinent to creating a regional network of Shambhala Communities.

Saturday evening we will enjoy a banquet, followed by offerings according to the inspiration of participants. If you play an instrument, bring it along! Share a poem, song or dance. Creativity is celebrated. Dress is uplifted. Fun is invited.

Sunday morning discussions continue. The program ends with lunch and good conversation.
