A Year of Deepening in Compassion

The path of the Bodhisattva Warrior begins with developing affection for ourselves and expands this to others, dissolving the barriers that divide us. To support this practice, the Shambhala Acharyas have offered to lead the community in a year-long series of talks, contemplative and meditation practices from the Buddhist Mahayana teachings of our lineage.
