Exploring Shambhala Culture: Manifesting our Future

With Druk Sakyong Wangmo Lady Diana Mukpo

July 22 - 26, 2021

The Druk Sakyong Wangmo, Lady Diana Mukpo invites you to a program where we will explore together the many riches in our Shambhala culture, the good the bad and the ugly.

In spite of all that has happened, we know in our hearts that Shambhala is our home. The current times have raised questions about our cultural traditions and the fundamental core of who we are as a community.

This program will open a forum to explore what still works and what needs to be changed. We can explore who we are and how we want to manifest into the future.

We will work with our many paths including mahayana and vajrayana practice paths, Kasungship, Shambhala arts and governance. We will take a fresh look at how to continue to manifest our rich practices and cultural forms. Through an open and accommodating exploration of our culture, this is an opportunity to bring us together on common ground. We may not agree on all aspects of our community, but we can do Ikebana together or practice drill.

Please join us for this opportunity to come together to practice and explore our future.
