Acharya Marianne Bots will personally attend to all the different practice groups; she will give talks on the teachings of the Shambhala Terma to all participants collectively.

“The essence of the Shambhala Terma Teachings is Basic Goodness and its manifestation as Enlightened Society. The sun and its rays are inseparable.
Shambhala offers a path of deepening and widening; the deeper we go, the wider we can go. This essence is the same for all levels of practice.
The energy to do this comes from lungta, windhorse; the innate source of our life-force and vitality that makes us feel alive and compassionate and longing to act in that way.”

Practice in the morning and afternoon with a communal lunch,


Talk after teatime in the late afternoon.
