Shambhala Community Conversations: Practice and Study Paths (Slow English)


Date: Friday, May 21, 2021
Coordinator: Colin Tracy
Contact person: Mary Fahrenfort

As the recent letters from the Sakyong Potrang Board, Shambhala Board, and Lady Diana Mukpo highlight, the landscape of Shambhala's practice paths is changing. We will discuss our own experiences within and aspirations for Shambhala's practice and study paths. We will connect and listen deeply, and share what themes emerge with Shambhala's community and leadership, so that our voices enrich the ongoing conversation.

This conversation is open to everyone and designed for people with English as a second language

This and all Shambhala Community Conversations are:

Inclusive: These conversations are an independent initiative of the Shambhala Process Team. Our goal is to encourage personal and collective reflection, insight, and action across all facets of our community.

Topical: We will incorporate your ongoing feedback to ensure that conversations best reflect your needs, both locally and mandala-wide.

Supportive: Volunteer facilitators will provide a container for an open and heartfelt meeting. We ask that you be ready to listen and share respectfully, including with others whose views differ from yours.

Generative: Our collective reflections and insights will be summarized and shared with the community at large, and with Shambhala’s leadership structures. Conversations will include opportunities for further direct engagement based on the topic.
