Live broadcast of October Sangha Retreat with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

Sep 19, 2009

Shambhala Online, in partnership with Karme Choling, will broadcast the first two talks of the October Sangha Retreat on Saturday 17 October and Sunday 18 October. The Sangha Retreat will be led by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and Acharyas Lobel and Duquette. Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche will give the opening talk. This program is open to all members and friends of Shambhala and will be broadcast live from Karme Choling.

The talks will take place at 3 pm Atlantic time, each day. People are encouraged to gather in groups at their centres. Shambhala Centres and Shambhala Meditation Groups will be given priority registration until 30 September. Please contact your centre leadership to see if they have registered for your group. From 1 October through 16 October, we will open registration for the remaining seats to individuals. The limited number of individual seats will be offered on first come-first served basis. As usual, the suggested fee for individual participation is higher than for group participation, and the generosity policy applies.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions by typing them in the chat pod during the broadcasts. No microphones or web cams will be needed.

A streamed video recording (connection to internet required) and a downloadable audio recording will be available to all registered participants after the live event.

For further information - exact times, costs, registration and so on, please visit Shambhala Online.

Centre directors and group coordinators: you should have received a registration link in a letter from Carolyn Mandelker. If you have not received this letter or need technical advice about hosting these broadcasts, contact Heather Scott at
