Creating Enlightened Society: An evening with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

September 12 / 8:00 PM - September 12 / 9:30 PM

 “The history and legend of Shambhala is based upon a great community that was able to reach a higher level of consciousness. This community could occur because its individual members participated fully in creating a culture of kindness, generosity, and courage.” – Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is head of the Shambhala global  network of meditation centres and a best selling author. On this special visit to London, as part of the Awake in the World Festival, he will present the vision of Shambhala and show how it can enrich us and our world.

Rooted in ancient Buddhist teachings, the way of Shambhala is a fresh spiritual path for our times. In the Shambhala vision, human beings are fundament ally good, warm and intelligent. These qualities can be cultivated through meditation, and further developed in daily life. Through this simple but profound process, they start radiating out to our family, friends, community and society.

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche will be presenting this vision for newcomers as well as established practioners. He will offer guided meditation on connecting with our fundamental dignity, and using this as a force to shape the world around us.
