Shambhala Community Conversation: Leadership and Hierarchy (Slow English)

Date: Friday, April 16, 2021
Teacher :
Coordinator: Mary Fahrenfort
Contact person: Dian Marie Hosking

This first conversation in a series initiated by the Shambhala Process Team’s Governance Models Working Group is an open exploration of our community’s experiences, aspirations and questions around governance. For this conversation, the definition of governance is left open, so that we can map together how we understand these issues. These discussions will shape subsequent gatherings that will explore in more detail our history and teachings around governance and ideas about Shambhala governance going forward.

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.
