with Alice Tarkeshi & Mery Miguez
June 29 / 9:00 AM - June 29 / 4:00 PM

The location of this program has been changed to San Francisco.

A day-long leadership training in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition. This workshop will provide skills and trainings in support of the path of contemplative leadership.

Morning session: Self-Reflection Through Imagery will make an in-depth investigation into symbol.

Afternoon session: Inviting Magic will explore the Shambhala view and practice of “Court Principle,” and the art of creating brilliant environments that communicate sanity, dignity and decorum.

How we lead our lives in households and in families, at work and at play, publicly and privately, affects the health of an entire society. Join with leaders in Shambhala to explore our mutual commitment to creating a more sane society through principles of universal leadership.
