    Join us for one or all of this eight week series of talks based on the book  "The Shambhala Principle: Discovering Humanity's Hidden Treasure" by our teacher Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Descriptions of the talks are listed below. This is a drop in class and everyone is welcome to attend all or as many of the classes as they wish.  Each week a different teacher from our center's "Teaching Circle" will give a talk on the chapters with discussion to follow.  Please join us to have good conversation and to discover if we can arouse our energy and confidence in order to create a good world that is founded on this principle.

    April 17th: The New Human Mandate
    A dharma talk by Beth Latchis
    In the final chapters of Sakyong Mipham's The Shambhala Principle we see the principle applied to our present day health care and human rights crises. We are presented with the keys to open our personal treasury, a map to an unconditional source of healthiness, and the guide to transforming our society into something we can all feel good about. The Shambhala Principle very clearly and simply brings together what we already know to be true in our hearts with what major religions and philosophies profess. We are invited to explore the role we can each play in bringing about the world we want to live in and propagate for generations to come.

    About the series:
      Rinpoche writes: "The Shambhala Principle offers the notion of basic goodness as a way of addressing the personal and social challenges that we face. Do we, as humans, have confidence in the basic goodness of humanity as well as of society itself? As a Tibetan lama and spiritual teacher, I believe this is our most compelling global issue."

    The series will begin on Tuesday, February 20th and run  through Tuesday, April 17th; the class will begin at 6:45pm and end at 8:00pm.   This is a drop in class and everyone is welcome to attend all or as many of the classes as they wish.
