The Shambhala Principle

with Robert Reichner & Janet Bass
June 17 / 7:00 PM - July 22 / 9:00 PM

For six Monday evenings, we will read and discuss Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche's new book, The Shambhala Principle.

Sakyong Mipham says:

"We have come to a crossroads in our history: we can either destroy the world or create a good future. The Shambhala Principle offers the principle of basic goodness as a way of addressing the personal and social challenges we face...It is an invitation to readers to reflect on their own basic goodness and the basic goodness of society, and then contemplate the question, can we rouse our energy and confidence to create a good world that is founded on this principle?"

Please obtain a copy of the book and read the first two chapters before the first meeting.

Prerequisites: None, open to everyone.

Location: Seattle Shambhala Center, 3107 E Harrison St, Seattle.
