Date: Sunday, June 4, 2023
Teachers: Parakh Hoon & George Gomez

Join Seattle sangha member Parakh Hoon and Shambhala Board Member George Gomez as they talk about the future of diversity, equity, and inclusion in Shambhala. Join us in conversation about what it means to foster a genuine sense of belonging for all.


Date: Sunday, June 11, 2023
Teacher: Mark Blumenfeld

Mark Blumenfeld leads this month’s “Second Sunday” Maitri Bhavana, so we can practice for the wellbeing of others. Maitri Bhavana is a practice that is done for the benefit of the seriously ill, or for major global turmoil and disasters.


Date: Sunday, June 18, 2023
Teacher: Touching The Earth Collective

In honor of the sentiment from the Gershwin song "Summertime," we are going to sleep in, take a walk and do this "livin is easy" thing. Because we have all been working hard, and it is time to relax and celebrate the longest day of the year.


Date: Sunday, June 25, 2023
Teacher: Ingrid Hoffellner

During this Sunday Gathering we will explore some of our sense perceptions and come to understand how they can help us to relax and connect with what is already inside us.
