Shambhala Online Weekly Dharma Gathering
“Nobody Left Out: The Dharma of Inclusion”
with Jane Heyer
Hosted by Dr. Shanté Paradigm Smalls
All are welcome to join these weekly events, which include guided meditation and a talk and discussion with a featured guest teacher.
On April 17, we are grateful to have Jane Heyer present a talk titled “Nobody Left Out: The Dharma of Inclusion.” So many of us feel left out. What can we do about that? Jane will talk about how we can find a sense of home within ourselves and then, turning outward, extend that to the people around us, coming closer to a world where everybody feels included.
This tradition began at Shambhala New York in the early 1990s as a way to welcome the greater community into the Shambhala center. Today, many Shambhala centers around the world continue to host these events for members and friends of the Shambhala community. We hope that these events will allow us to collectively examine the issues facing our sangha and larger society by spotlighting new and fresh voices across our mandala.
